You need to be sysadmin and run:

-- Run this if User has been drop from Server Login
CREATE LOGIN [BUILTIN\Administrators] FROM WINDOWS WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE=[master]

-- Run this to add it back to sysadmin roles
EXEC master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'BUILTIN\Administrators', @rolename = N'sysadmin'

it's a SQL security so you need to connect to SQL server and run these command.  

You can used sqlcmd Utility to run the command if you don't want to use  management studio.

but make sure you connect as sysadmin.
