Hi,
SQL has always seemed a back are to me, and wherever possible I have delegated this to others. However at the moment I am stuck trying to work out the best approach to solve this.

Companyweb was fine, not idea why but it stopped working, the error log is full of messages :-
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Windows SharePoint Services 2.0
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            15/03/2014
Time:            13:18:20
User:            N/A
Computer:      OP01
Description:
#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_Config on OP01\SharePoint.  Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.

Have tried restarting IIS, and MSSQL$SHAREPOINT, but the sharepoint just stops again.

Did see a number of articles about timer service, and from what I can tell this is set correctly to NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE and seems to start fine.

In Enterprise manager I can see the sharpoint server, which is stopped, and if I try and do anything it says "A connection could not be established OP01\SHAREPOINT"
Reason: SQL sever does not exist or access denied !

Now I am out of my depth, most of the articles I found by a google do not seem to be the same issue I have. They mention service packs and MSDE2000. Whereas this was running find then suddenly stopped.

Regards

Can you find any more events on the event viewer for the companyweb?  Esp when accessing the site?

I have accepted your solution as I have now abandoned this job through the customer interfering with the server and installing Sharepoint 3 in an attempt to fix themselves.
