I just install a SQL Server 2008 R2 on a VM.  As I try to login, I got the following error message.  I check the Task Manager (See file attached). SQL Server is running.  Does anyone can tell me what is the problem?
Thanks.

Cannot connect to TempoTangoSQL.

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.

I believe you have to enable remote connections, TCP/IP connections, and SQL Authentication.  And you need to create a user other than 'sa' to connect with.  It is not recommended to use 'sa' because it has the highest privileges and can do anything.

In SSMS, the Properties page for the server let you set Enable Remote Connections and on the Security tab, you can enable SQL Authentication.
SQL Server PropertiesIn the SQL Server Configuration Manage, you can set the IP addresses and port number you need to use.
SQL TCP/IP settingsYou also need to enable the 'sqlbrowser.exe' service if you are trying to connect by 'named instances'.

I cannot even able to login yet. Hence, I can not get to the property of the server instance.
(See Capture02.png)
I try to browse for server name,  nothing appear in Local or Network (See Capture03,png)
I have enable the NamePiped of SQL Server Network Configuration.

I did stop and restart the SQL Server. Problem still exists.

On my machine in the login for SSMS, the servername is shown as "MACHINENAME\SQLSERVERNAME" and the username is specified as "MACHINENAME\Username", not just 'Username'.
