    Howdy neighbours,

    I am having a problem, which i feel is network related.Searched all over the net and cannot find a resolution.

    Particular services of mine are not starting...they are : WebClient, Computer Browser, and WORKSTATION, all of which are set to automatic and should be started no?

    Few things to note:
    --Webclient says "starting" , but does not start

    --I feel Workstation is the key to get up and running, and the others will follow as the others "depend" on the workstation, the workstation has no dependancies afaik.

    --When clicking on "computers in workgroup" under "my network places", it does nothing, just gives a windows beep and nothing opens, not even a blank window.

    --My IP address has changed. I had to remove and reinsert my network card a while back, and since then i have had a new IP address assigned to my PC. Not sure if thats relevant, thought id mention.

    --I have tried the "Client for MS Networks" and reinstalling the client, however when performing/pressing the "install" button i receive the error "Windows cannot find the drivers for this device"...which friggin driver does it need? I have tried the XP disc...no luck.

    Please can someone help me. Thanks.

    Whats the Service control manager saying in the event viewer when you try and start the WORKSTATION service? Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Event Viewer and then click system events double click the Service Control Manager Events and see what they are telling you

    Could the fact that i had disabled mup.sys have anything to do with my issue with workstation not starting? (wild shot in the dark?)

    Have you tried a repair install of the OS? Sounds like you are having a few problems just now. 8)

    Firstly, HAppy Birthday sparko...havent been here long but you've been great help over the past few weeks. Best wishes mate.

    In re to my issue..twas indeed the mup.sys file i had disabled. Copied it from my lappy and BLAM, service controller errors are gone.

    I guess just by talking out loud it helps somewhat eh?

    Cheers for your help though Thomas/Sparky.

    wow, you have been posting a lot recently. SOunds like you need to back up all your necessaries and do a clean install.
    Starting from scratch maybe the best thing for your computer, and you'll learn as you go :)

    why do you need to access My NEtwork Places anyway? Are you in a workgroup with other PCs? Are you in a domain?
    Try renaming the workgroup you are in and restart your PC? If you are in a domain, disjoin from it, reboot and rejoin.

    If those dont work try
    1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Double-click the Services icon.
    3. In the list of installed services, click Computer Browser.
    4. Click Startup.
    5. Change the Startup Type to Manual, and then click OK.
    6. In the list of installed services, click Server, and then click Startup.
    7. Change the Startup Type to Manual, and then click OK.
    8. Click Close.
    9. Restart your computer.

    mup.sys problems should be resolvable.. however,
    The main reasons for this Windows XP or Win 2000 boot hang or alleged mup.sys issue are:

    * Hard disk failure or corruption
    * A corrupted registry or registry hive
    * New hardware has been installed but not did not completely "Register or re-Register" correctly
    * New hardware has been installed but it is faulty or failing
    * The new hardware's driver or windows itself has been compromised (Disk data corruption or by a virus) or (rare) needs to be updated
    * The power supply is marginal in output or failing (Common per user feedback)
    * BIOS\ESCD\Motherboard chipset driver conflict with a component, its driver, or its registry data
    * Existing hardware including the motherboard may have failed in a specific way but not catastrophically.


    which kind of brings us back to my original point of; with all the time you are spending trying to resolve these niggling issues you could of backed up, reinstalled and reconfigured a new hard drive many times over... it may be time to just bite the bullet and get it done
    .
    best of luck
