Cant access database engine through SQL Management Studio

Hello experts,

When trying to connect to the database engine with SQL Server Management Studio the server name doesn't show in the login box. I can reach Analysis Services but not database Engine.  I also get “Access is Denied” error when I try to log in to the Integration Services.

TCP/IP is enabled and the Firewall contains a rule that allows SQL Server through port 1433.

Is there any way I can get the server to allow remote connection without using SQL Management Studio?

I should say that the Server is on a network and I have full access to it.

One more thing, when I run SQL Configuration Manger, I don't see the database Engine.
I see SQL Server Integration services, analysis services and sql server browser .  I can stop and run each one of them.
But where is database Engine....??

Thanks

Can you run  SQL Server Management Studio on the server and confirm that you are using the Instance name corectly?

Can you try to use the IP address of the server instead of server name ?

When I put the IP address instead of the server name it took me to the analysis server

Did you try to connect directly to server and start SSMS there ?

I can, but there are several names that appear under the Database Engine -  all the ones on the network obviously - but non of them is the name of my server

Looking under Server Manager > All Servers I see only one name:
SQL-Server2 IP Address 10.10.1.72 and under Manageability I see:
Online - Performance counter not started

My apologies,  Harris - I was at work and had to leave to pick up my neighbor's child from school - forgot all about her!
I'll be checking things again tomorrow. i hope I haven't been too much bother.

Thank you so much for your patience.
I re-installed  SQL Server, and everything works as it should.
I am relatively new to doing serious work with SQL and so is my network Admin. We are both wading through like two blind bats!
Thanks a  lot.
