Dear EBatista
ok then on the same service; can you check the user dedicated to the service.

then go to start and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Manager and start the Server

does it start from there

any error?

can you access any database through any ODBC or something

I mean we need to see more signs so we can judge the problem
