This error means that you cannot reach the Server. So some of possible problem are:

1. Typo in the Server name you wrote.

2. Due to network configuration you cannot reach the server box from your box

3. The sql server was configured to listen in other port than 1433

4. SQL server is not running

Some test you can do are ping the server box. Try creating the datasource using IP instead of server name.

If you have the SQL Client tools, try connecting usin Query Analyzer (or Management Studio depending on the version you are using)

Let me know the result so we work from there.

In the server name try Localhost or (local).

To check the port there is a program called Server Network Utility in the SQL Server program group.

Select the protocol TCP/IP and then click properties...

If you are using 2005 you have to go to Start >> All Program >> Microsoft SQL Server 2005 >> Configuration Tools >> Sql Server Configration Manager

In there you have to check if you server is running. Check if the column state of SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) says "Running"

and to check the port click on Sql Server 2005 Network Configration >> Protocols for MSSQLSERVER and Double click on TCP/IP.
This will open a window, on this window click on tab IP Address check the rows TCP Port
