Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) is a way to configure IP addresses and TCP/IP settings throughout your network.
The DHCP service is run on a machine with a static IP address so that the computers on the network can find it for automated configurations.
Setting the IP address on a Windows 2003 server is accomplished through the network configuration settings in Control Panel.
Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel." Double-click "Network Connections." In this section, double-click "LAN Connection."
This opens the configuration tool to set the IP address of the server.
Select "TCP/IP" from the list of configured network applications and click the "Properties" button. This opens a new configuration window.
Select "Use the following IP address" to set a static IP for the server. Enter the IP address chosen for the server in the first textbox that is activated.
Enter the subnet mask and default gateway for the server. The default gateway is usually the router on the local network or the DSL or cable modem on a small, home network.
Enter the DNS server address. The DNS servers are separate servers on the network.
For small, home networks, the DNS server is provided by your service provider.
Click the "Ok" button to save the settings. Click "Ok" again at the general LAN properties window.
Renew settings on local computers. Computers that use the DHCP server for configuration need to be rebooted.
You can also use the DOS command prompt to renew settings. The "ipconfig -renew" command refreshes the settings on client computers on the network.

Sir you have to reformat the hard drive and load the windows operating system windows xp,2000, vista or seven. then you need to load the application programs. You might be better off buying a working used computer. Also their are too many bad places to go to on the Internet.
This problem occurs because of a mismatch in the computer name and the name that the RPC service expects. This mismatch may occur if the computer name is changed by using one of the following methods:
The Microsoft System Preparation (Sysprep) tool was used to create the Windows XP image that you used to start the computer.
You change the computer name during the Windows XP Out of Box Experience.
One or more of the following conditions are true:
You disconnect the network cable during the Windows XP Out of Box Experience.
You do not restart the computer after the Windows XP Out of Box Experience has completed.
You open Disk Management.
To work around this problem, restart the computer at least one time after the Windows XP Out of Box Experience has completed, and before you open Disk Management Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
APPLIES TO Microsoft Windows XP Professional Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
It' also listed at Microsoft as incompatable with vista. Best you can do is get a cheap old used machine that runs XP and set it up as a print server for your network, (set it up with printer sharing) send all of your documents thru it for printing. Sorry it's probably not the answer you were looking for but it is the only solution I've found for mine. I bought an old P3 machine running XP for $5.00 at a garage sale and it's working great as a print server.
Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.
Whats the operating system of your server?
Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.
I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.
