Execute a stored proceedure called sp_reststatus <dbname>
in order to redo the database.

Eg:

sp_resetstatus master
go


this will reset the suspect flag, but leave all other flags intact.
however this feature can only be done by the sysadmin (sa)
As soon as you run this, you must reboot the system, (shutdown first).

you should be all set. If this does not work, then under SQL 6.5 using the setup you can rebuild the master database, under 7, you would need to re-install.
