hmm, wouldn't a short look tell you this? You'll find it in the application log.

When you've successfully restarted your SQL Server, also check it's error logs.

And check the settings of the SQL Server Windows services, which start type is used.

Go to Event Viewer and check for error logs.

SQL related issues are in the application log

Service related issues are in the systems log.

When I service is stopped you will get a Event Id 7036 Source Service Control Manager

You need to look at the Description to find which service was stopped.

This is a information event message not an Error
