Iwould suggest you check the SQL error logs. They will hopefully tell you what is going wrong with the server starting. If you post the error up here we can probably help fix it for you.

Check the services applet in Control Panel. Are the SQL services started? If not, check the system and application logs in Computer Management for more information about why the service(s) did not start.

it shows that the server didnt start in timely fashion and asked to check the server logs
