This is a sockets error indicating that the SQL Server was not found on the network. I would ensure that you can connect from that machine via another utility (ODBC, OSQL) or even query analyzer for that matter if you have a SQL client installed on that machine.

OK thanks but how do you check the cause of the problem? When I checked the SQL Server was running.

Like I just said, check initially to see if you can connect to it from any tool. Make sure you can ping the machine at least to see if there is a network layer existent.
