When Changing the administrative password for MS sql server how do you log back into SQL server to get the services started?

GooD Day Experts,

I changed the administrative password of my domain and now our SQL Server will not log in and start the services.  How might I change the login credentials of our SQL server?  This is with 8.00.760.  

Many Thanks,

Go to Control Panel\Administrative tools\services,
select MSSQLSERVER service, right click, properties, Log On tab, and here you can put your new domain admin account password, OK.
The same you do for SQLAGENT service,

After this try to start MSSQLSERVER service.
