I am using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000). When I restart the SQL Service, it fails to do so. I have tried running the service in command prompt & got the following error:

Error: 9003, Severity: 20, State: 1.
Cannot recover the master database. Exiting.

Kindly help as it is quite urgent & I can not afford to loose any data. Thanks.
