I think so. Please review http://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server-2008 and find the string which matches your environment (probably the first one on the list).

In order to connect to a database, you must have a connection string, and it must be configured correctly. You are using a connection string in line 4 of your code posting (it's the thing between the double-quotes). I don't believe you have set up your connection string properly. The link I gave you is a link to a site which keeps track of various connection string for various database platforms. I provided you with link to the SQL Server 2008 page. The things in the gray/blue boxes are the various connection strings you might try. They are generic, so you will have to change the parts of the string to match your environment (e.g. change "Inital Catalog=myDataBase" to "Initial Catalog=lucky"). I believe the first entry on that page is the one that will get you going. Just be sure to change the parts to match your server.

"Data Source" is the server name and instance name of your database. It should be of the form:  server\instance
"Initial Catalog" is the name of the database as found at "Data Source". If you view your database in something like SQL Server Management Studio, a "Data Source" would be the name you find next to the little database icon (the yellow cylinder).

yes I have used that code.

Still getting the error as " SqlException was unhandled by user".
error description:
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

My code:
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source =c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL ; Initial Catalog = tbllogin; User Id =lucky\Dell ; Password = ");
                SqlCommand cmd;
