Errors I'm getting (print screens):

RE: Cannot connect to Database in Server Management Studio

This doesn't really look like an engineering based problem. You will do better joining the sister site Tek-Tips (which is designed for computer professionals). When you've joined, look at http://www.tek-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=962 which deals with SQL admin issues

Good Luck
