SQL Server 2014 network-related error

Don't know what happened with my computer.  I had issues with Visual Studio and SQL Server.  I reinstalled VIsual Studio and that resolved that issue.  I repaired SQL Server but i'm still having and issue with SQL server.

Any ideas?

Sorry, I just saw your list of services. Assume they are running.
The connection you are attempting is via Shared Memory. Have you tried another method like TCP/IP and the localhost (,1433).

Here is a checklist for such problems (ignore that it for 2005, the issues are generic):
I assume they are both on the same machine (Using Shared Memory)? Is SQL running (check under services) when you are getting this error?

It was stopped.  Needed to go to Configuration to check to see if it was running.  It wasn't.  Started it.  Have no idea how it stopped.
