Are these other services enabled in your:

system settings  -->  advanced  -->  System services    ??

If so, then check your boot messages  (dmesg)  and see if there are errors.

Also check   /var/log/messages     or /var/log/daemon.log   
or   /var/log/syslog

There's lots of places to look for the problem.
