SQL Service wont start

Hi all, please could someone assist. I have very little knowledge of SQL and my SQL server service starts and then stops immediately. I get this error log:

Event ID: 17055
18052 :
Error: 9003, Severity: 20, State: 1

I have recreated the Admin profile on the server and tried logging on as another user with admin rights but the service will not start

Any assistance would be appreciated

Many Thanks

What recent changes you made? Did u upgrade your OS or some other software?
Besides, have you got a backup of master database?

Hi All, I gave up and removed SQL Server 2000 and have loaded SQL 2005 but now under SQL Configuration Manager i get this error in the Configuration manager:

Connection Failed, Check SQL Server registration properties

Any ideas?

When I right click and click connect i get this error:

A connection could not be establish to (Local)
Reason: [SQL-DMO]You must use SQL Server 2005 Management Tools to connect to this server...
Please verify that SQL Server is running and check your SQl Server registration properties

Please help
