Is it SQL Server express? IF so, go the command prompt , type sqlcmd –S(local)SQLEXPRESS . If you see “1>” that means that you managed to connect. By default SQL Express is installed as the service name SQLEXPRESS . To connect use (local)SQLEXPRESS

Is it local or remote? or are you trying to connect to another Edition?

ok. go to machine where you installed sql server

go to start-> run-> type services.msc and enter

inside services listed look for SQL Server service. if its a named instance it will show name there otherwise it will MSSQLSERVER in which case your machine name would be servername
