SQL Database won't connect

Good morning,
On Monday we had a power outage and my UPS's couldn't keep my servers up long enough to perform a soft shutdown.  As a result, I've had to fix my AD/DNS server.  My SQL server will not connect to my fsas_live database (old Navision).  I have made several screenshots for viewing.  I believe the issue is related to failed authentication.  

A few weeks ago, I had changed the Administrator password, I think that the SQL is seeing the old password?  How can I manually update the corrected Administrator password?

Please give mr your expert advise based on the error screenshots I have provided.
Thank you in advance for your help. I am truly grateful!!

Change the authentication to Windows Authentication and try it.
Authentication
If you aren't logged in as the administrator account then try doing a RunAs or log off and log in as the FNAS\administrator account.

Looks like you are running SQL 2005 RTM with 1 hot fix on the top according to this:
http://myexperienceinmssql.blogspot.ca/2011/03/microsoft-sql-server-2005-builds.html
And on the top the issue by looking at the screenshot is not authentication but the fact that your database is not in a on-line state.

In my opinion you should run at least SQL 2005 SP4, and besides that I hope you have good backups for "fsas_live" database.

Try bring it on line - see:

You can run this command in SQL SSMS to see what is its status:

use master
go
SELECT DATABASEPROPERTYEX ('fsas_live', 'Status')
SELECT DATABASEPROPERTYEX ('fsas_live', 'UserAccess')
go

Neither of these answers were the solution.
The answer was to stop and restart the services.
Thank you though!!
