Hello,
Just like the error says SharePoint can't connect to the configuration database. It can occures when your database in SQL is corrupted or offline or unreachable for any other reason.
You need to check your database and repair it but sometimes if you run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard again it helps.

Did you change the password of CORSAIR\SharePoint ?

Not sure. I've taken over for someone. Do you mean SQL?

Are you actually having any issues? It could just be a symptom of SQL backups or something similar taking place. When I oversaw a SPS2003 farm, occasionally I would see logs like that, but there were no actual issues with the farm.

We don't use Sharepoint on this Windows 2003 SBS system so I'm not certain what the issues are but I would like to get it fixed in case we need it.  

Thanks

Are you having any trouble accessing SharePoint or pulling up SharePoint Central Administration?

Also, are there any known operational processes taking place around 11:00pm on either the SharePoint farm or SQL that might be affecting down time?

An event ID 1000 error message is logged to the application event log when you restart Windows Small Business Server 2003
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840685

Resolution:
The error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section does not affect the functionality of Windows SharePoint Services or of Windows Small Business Server 2003. If you can connect to the Windows SharePoint Services Web site successfully, you can safely ignore this error message.

If that is not satisfactory, here are other troubleshooting tips to try:

Is there a way to check the existing Sharepoint password or reset it so it can access SQL?

Thanks

If the account couldn't access SQL, you wouldn't be able to see any content when browsing SharePoint. Since you can, I don't believe it is a password issue. Again, see the TechNet KB above.
