Hi Amerielappage,

·         Did the problem started recently?

·         What were you doing when the computer crashed?

·         Is the problem occurring randomly or does it only happen while performing a specific task?

I would suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps.

Method 1: If it is recent problem try to perform a system restore and check.

Method 2: Verify these services are started, in order:

DCOM Server Process Launcher

RPC Endpoint Mapper

Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

Security Accounts Manager


If they are not started, start them and check. Follow the steps below:

a)    Click Start, type “services” on the start search box and press enter.

b)    Scroll down and check for the above mentioned services.

c)    Double click each of the services and start them if they are not started.
