Windows 7: the dependency service or group failed to start

Very helpful, I think these are the issues. On each one of them, start with DHCP client, double click on it, locate Dependencies Tab, in here make sure that the dependencies are all Started, then do the same thing to the Network Location Awareness and Server Services.

I think we already determined that there are no network services running at all going by the complete absence of anything in the ipconfig, and I'm pretty sure with sfc /scannow not being able to finish it's scan let alone correct the problem that this system's file's are somehow messed up.

I'd go with a system restore to a previous point in time or try the repair installation.

I'd go with the Repair installation, perhaps will be better.

It's working for me but you can use your command prompt for this.

Type the following commands one at a time into your command prompt, hit "enter" after each one, run as admin then restart the machine.

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)

i have run both theses commands, and restarted my notebook, but it still is not working. here is the trace of ipconfig /all.
No wonder it's not working, it looks like you don't have any type of network to connect too.

I've never seen an ipconfig so empty which makes it hard to figure out whats going on.

Have you tried running sfc /scannow to see if any files are missing or corrupted?

Have you attempted to reset your router?
Oh my god. I had the same problem as op (did a system recovery, which left me with that lovely message).

sfc /scannow fixed mine, unfortunately I had spent a lot of time trying other stuff.

Thank you all for your help with solving this :-)

I go with all the method above. No one worked on my laptop. Even to restore the computer, it says the computer seems not function correctly before. What should I do!
