I can not connect to my SQL Server 2005

asked 9 days ago by Chris Peterson
I can not connect to my SQL Server 2005
this message appears:

TITLE: Connect to Database Engine
Cannot connect to CHANGEME.
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2)

And did you click on the link to Microsoft, that is mentioned in this error message?

There you wil get this information:

" Explanation

SQL Server did not respond to the client request because the server is probably not started.

User Action

Make sure that the server is started."

Did you try that? You didn't give us any other information, so you you probably won't get a better answer.

Thanks every body
The problem is solved..........

On the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Configuration Manager.
In SQL Server Configuration Manager, in the left pane, click SQL Server.
In the details pane, right-click the named instance of SQL Server, and then click Start.
