SQL Server (SQL Express) State "Stopped" and it won't "Start"

Hello,

I have SQL Express 2012 loaded, using VS 2012 and VS 2010 to interact with it.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled SQL Express to the point of ridiculous.  

The database that I have Studio building exists in the data folder.  I also cannot connect to the local SQL Express through the management studio but am able to connect to other database engines.  My stuff is sitting there and I cannot access it.

I opened the Configuration Manager and the SQL Server has the little red square on it, indicating it has stopped.  My Start Mode is set on Automatic.  I try to "start" SQL Server and it errors out with "The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion.  Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details."

The last event is that the SQL Server is terminating because of a system shutdown.

Any help will score you huge in karma!!

Was that entry in the application logs or the system logs?  At the very least, I would be expecting the error you're seeing come up when you try to start the service in the event logs (with some better descriptions).

I followed this and found out that I was getting an error 1609.  I binged error 1609 and found the instructions to change the Log On as NT Authority\Network Service and it is now running.

For others:  I have SQL Express loaded/running on remote machine that I log into at a secured facility.  

Thanks so much for leading me in the right direction!  Good things for you for the rest of the day!!!!
