PLS HELP ME OUT WHAT DO I DO :S .:'(

You didn't give much detail about the program but I'm going to guess that it is an ASP .NET app because this problem frequently happens with ASP .NET when implementing roles.

With ASP .NET the problem is that the Machine.Config file where the app is hosted list a default database different that the one that you are using. You need for your web.config file to over-ride the machine.config file. Try adding this to your web.config file.

<connectionStrings>
    <add name="SqlRoleManagerConnection"
         connectionString="your connection string" />
  </connectionStrings> 

<roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="AspNetSqlRoleProvider">
      <providers>
        <remove name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" />
        <add name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider"
           connectionStringName="SqlRoleManagerConnection"
           applicationName="/"
           type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider, 
             System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,                                
             PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
      </providers>
    </roleManager>
