Thread: At least one service or driver failed during system startup

    At least one service or driver failed during system startup

    After a DC in Windows 2003 domain started, a popup window shows up:
    "At least one service or driver failed during system startup. ..."
    I checked Apps Event log and found the error "The Kerberos Key Distribution
    Center service hung on starting". However, all the automated-start services
    have started including this one. Why this window popup? Is it possible there
    is some manual-start service not start? If it is not, how to stop this window
    poping-up? Thanks.

    Might also be a driver that failed to start so check Device Manager

    Device Manager shows all drivers loaded correctly. No yellow question mark,
    no red X mark.

    It could be your keyboard. Most servers don't have a keyboard plugged in directly. You have to turn it off in bios on most machines to stop getting the error.
