Can you try running services under local system account?

What version and edition of SQL Server are you using? SQL Agent is not available for SQL Express Edition.

If the service account for SQL Agent set up as a login to SQL Server and does it have sysadmin rights?

Have your Windows people implemented any Group Policy Objects that limit access to services? SQL Agent needs to query the status of some services in order to complete its startup.

one more bit ...

If using an AD account it needs to be in the LocalAdministrators group on the server in addition to the SQL sysadmin role.

This is especially true if the initial installation was performed using LocalSystem and then converted to an AD account to execute the SL Server services..

This is wrong. There is no need for any SQL Server service account to be given windows administrator rights.
