@RobDev,

May I know from where you are trying to connect, and also check the below steps.

Step 1) Make sure SQL SERVER is up and the instance you try to connect is running.
Step 2) Your system Firewall should not block SQL Server port.
Step 3) Go to Computer Management >> Service and Application >> SQL Server 2005 Configuration >> Network Configuration
Enable TCP/IP protocol. Make sure that SQL SERVER port is by Default 1433.
