cannot connect ot local
Posted on 2013-01-10
My copy of SQL Server 2008 has stopped working. I have had it installed since August and use it every day. All of a sudden when I started up the computer, I am getting a message stating that it can't open a connection to local. error 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server. Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2
Am I going to have to reinstall SQL server or could there be another problem?
I shut down the computer and restarted it and I received the same error.
I had Windows Authentication and I switched it to SQL Server Authentication and I recieved the same result. Any thoughts?
