I'm not sure if this problem has been solved, but I was browsing through the forums and noticed this unanswered problem.

Did you install SQL Server with something other then the default instance?

Goto Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services, and verify that Microsoft SQL Server is running.

Need a few more details.

Is Service Manager Running in the Taskbar? Is the service running like Techmaven stated?

How are you trying to log in / connect to the server?

What is exact message of the error?

Can anyone please help me out regarding a problem..?
