Installed Sql server 2008 successfully without any error or problem but when i try to connect to the Sql server through Sql server management studio ... its giving me this error:

"Cannot connect to MEHDI-PC\SQLEXP.

Additional information:
A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occured during the login process. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 233)"

I am new to Server technologies. Please help.
