When I reboot the server I noticed that the event log had the following errors listed about 8 times in a row.

Event ID 1000
Source: Windows SharePoint Service

#50070:  Unable to conect to the database STS_Config on dell-server\SharePoint.  Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.

I noitced that in the error above it says "dell-server\SharePoint" the server name has been changed to something else, Could this be why we are getting this error?  How would I change this error.

I also went to SharePoint Central Administration. and it trys to open up a webpage going to http://localhost:8081 that doesn't load
