While starting a computer running Windows server, if a service does not start or shows one of the following error messages,

  • The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion (Error: 1053/Event ID: 7000)
  • Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for a transaction response from the ServiceName service (Event ID: 7011)
  • A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the ServiceName service to connect (Event ID: 7009)

Please make sure the below steps are followed with the help of sys admin:

  1. Go to Start > Click Run > Type regedit > click OK
  2. Locate and click on the following registry subkey "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control"
  3. In the right pane, check for ServicesPipeTimeout entry.
