Office SharePoint Search Service hangs does not start

Hi All,
I have faced one strange problem i was restarting Office SharePoint Search Service on my farm environment and suddenly it got hanged it is showing me in starting state there is no stop,start or restart option in services.msc console. I have restarted my machine but still error was as it is.
I tried following command also

stsadm -o osearch -action start
stsadm -o osearch -action stop
net stop oSearch
net start oSearch
nothing was working for me it shows me operation time out as osearch service is in starting state.

I fixed it by
psconfig -cmd services -install
and configure SharePoint search again and it works for me.

warning: follow above instruction at your risk on production environment :)
