Database cannot be accessed

I get the error message database cannot be accessed check network connection and verify database server is available.  When I checked the SQL server ACT 7 is stopped - when I try to start it it says request failed or service failed to respond in a timely fashion....how do I get access to my database and why did this happen in the first place?

Turns out that support had to uninstall my SQL and reinstall  - seems that a Windows update may have been the problem - I am running Vista

Thanks!

Its possible that you're antivirus or firewall is blocking the service from starting.  So, try disabling your security software along with the Windows Firewall.  Also if you're on Windows Vista, disable UAC and see if you can start the service.
