Just a guess here. Some networks cards on Windows 2003 take a couple seconds, maybe even 20 seconds, to become online once the Windows interface displays. If Oracle attempts to start before the network interface is up, and it attempts to resolve the server's IP address, Oracle may not be able to start. You can try making an entry in the HOSTS file for the server's IP address, or modify the listener.ora and tnsnames.ora files so that server name resolution is not necessary.
The Windows event logs may provide clues to determine if this is the problem. You may need to check both the Application and System event logs on the server.

If the last two lines appeared before the line at 12/24/2007 11:20:08 AM, the database may have failed to start. If this is the problem, it is also possible to delay the start of the service.
