      I HAVE LOADED ORACLE 8i ON WINDOWS XP. IT HAD LOADED SUCCESSFULLY AND
      I HAD WORKED ON IT. BUT ON NEXT REBOOT WINDOWS IS NOT ABLE TO START
      THE SERVICE CALLED OracleServiceORCL. WHEN I TRY TO START IT AGAIN IT
      ENDS WITH AN ERROR:-

      Could not start the OracleServiceORCL service on Local Computer
      Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control
      request in a timely fashion


      I HAD SEARCHED FOR THIS ERROR AND MICROSOFT RECOMMENDED LOADING OF
      MICROSOFT .NET FRAMEWORK 1.1 SERVICE PACK 1. RUNNING THIS SERVICE PACK
      ALSO DIDN'T HELP.

      PLEASE HELP ME SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

          Hi,

          Disable your CAPSLOCK at the left of your keyboard.

          For your pb, try to remove the line sqlnet.authentication_services=(NTS) from the ORACLE_HOME\network\admin\sqlnet.ora file on the client and server or set sqlnet.authentication_services=(NONE).

          Verify if you have all the rigths on Oracle files.

          Nicolas.

            Hi!
            this is generally a RAM issue...
            again restart the computer, now go to the services section stop
            some of the services that you don't need then make them manual,
            now go to the property section of oracle services and make it manual too,
            restart your computer...
            go to the dos prompt and type this:

            c:> set oracle_sid=<SID>
            c:> oradim -startup -sid <SID>

            where <SID> is the name of your service
            this will start your service....

            cheers'

                Hi Amit,

                As you told it is a RAM issue, does it happen, if the RAM is consumed a lot and it throws the error.
                It gives me this error and still the service 'starts'. I do not get this error in the first database I open in services, which makes me think, that the RAM/memory which you pointed might be correct.

                Thanks
