The problem i am having is whenever i reboot my server the SQL service is automatically off. So when i go to start it manually i get the following error "The service did not start due to a logon failure", which is followed by an error number "1069". So to fix this i have to manually reenter my password for the MSSQL Server service and then start it again. Is there a way to fix this problem? i want to reboot and have it start automatically everytime. BTW, im not using our local system account for this service.

This post is helpful.

If you are running SQL 7 on your desktop, not a dedicated server, try this.  Go to Control Panel | Services.  Find MSSQLServer and go to Properties.  From there, try logging on through your local system account rather than through a Domain.  Hope this helps.

Good luck!
