Error Message?

Hi I am new to this program, and I was trying to make a new database, but an error pops up saying that there is an error connecting to the database. There is an error connecting to the Microsoft SQL Server. 

 

What does this mean and how do I fix it? 

 

Thanks so much!

Go to your services, and see if sqlserver(act7) is started.

 

Services can be reached through administrative tools or start>>run>>services.msc

It says it's started. Should I restart it possibly?
