If the database server is located on the same server, you will likely need to tell SharePoint that the database resides on the new server name via the central administration site.

You can look in Event Viewer and it should show the failure to connect to the database as well as which server/database it's trying to connect to.

Did you simply rename the server and that's it?

You need to also run: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607556.aspx

You may need to change Alternate Access Mappings as well, if you have any URL's pointing to a server name.
