Can't get database to open

I get this error message when I try to open any of my databases. I have already tried starting the SQL steps but still have no luck in opening my database.


The "LAPTOP-XXXXXXXX" Computer could not be reached because the IP address could not be resolved. Verifying the LAPTOP-XXXXXX computer is availabe on the network, that it has the correct IP address, and that Microsoft SQL Server is properly installed may resolve this issue.


I have no clue what this means or how to fix it. I need to make a backup of my database and that means I need to be able to open it.


Any help would be great!! Thanks
