SQLAgent$SBSMonitoring service not running, corrupt master.mdf file.

Hi, is everyone ok??

Well, basically i over-look the operation of several servers for various companies. One of the servers however will not send me reports. Ive checked the problem out and it appears that the SQLAgent$SBSMonitoring service is not running. When i open services.msc and try to start it, it comes up with the formentioned error. (Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start) Ive checked this out further and i believe that the master.mdf file is corrupt. As, the server is a new setup carried out by a colleague, no backups were created. Are they any suggestions for repairing the service?? We do not have any SQL repair software at hand.....

Cheers for the feedback, it is greatly appreciated!!
