Have you confirmed that Reporting Services is indeed installed on that service, and have you checked in the Windows services that the specific services required are running?
Have a look at this article:


You didn't mention which version of MSSQL you're using, this page refers to 2008R2. Not sure if there's a difference for newer versions but you can change it at the top of the page.
