Never seen this before. Turned on my computer and tried to connect to my local machine with Management Studio. Tried rebooting, nothing. Here's the error:

a connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: shared memory prrovider, error 0 - no process is on the other end of the pipe) (microsoft sql server, error: 233).

Please help!

Thanks!

This error usually indicates that the server closed the connection, e.g. during login verification.

The best is to check for any messages from SQL Server correlated to the time of the failure - either in the Application EventLog or in the ERRORLOG file (by default located in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG directory).  There is a chance they provide more information to identify the root cause of the failure.

I take that back. The log file wasn't in the MSSQL.1 folder, it was in the MSSQL.3 folder.

Is this the issue?

2010-08-31 09:41:05.04 Logon       Could not connect because the maximum number of '1' user connections has already been reached. The system administrator can use sp_configure to increase the maximum value. The connection has been closed. [CLIENT: <local machine>]
2010-08-31 09:41:05.04 Logon       Error: 17809, Severity: 20, State: 3.

Something about the VIA protocol not being enabled? I have no idea what that means, but that was the issue.

Is the SQL Server running locally? Does the login failure happen almost immediately, or does it take about 30 seconds to timeout?

 - If it's immediate, then SQL Server is denying your login request, which indicates that it's not configured properly.
 - However, if it times out, then I'd suspect the SQL Server service is stopped - check your Administrative Tools -> "Services" list to see if "SQL Server" is running, and start it if it's stopped for some reason.
