Try following the KB article below.  If it doesn't work, proceed with a reinstall.

Re: creating database

Check to see if the SQL service is started.

- Go to Start and select Run.

- Type in services.msc and click Ok.

- Find SQL Server (ACT7) and start the service.

Re: creating database

thanks for the reply David,

 

I looked for SQL Server (ACT7) but could only see these:

 

SQL Server (SQL Express)

SQL Server Active Directory Helper

SQL Server Browser

 

Should I try a re install?
