    Hi Ajay

    try this:

    1.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

    2.Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

    3.In the right pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry.

    Note If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:

    a. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

    b. Type ServicesPipeTimeout, and then press ENTER.

    4.Right-click ServicesPipeTimeout, and then click Modify.

    5.Click Decimal, type 60000, and then click OK.

    This value represents the time in milliseconds before a service times out.

    6.Restart the computer.

    Let me know if it helps

      did you try to start the services through SQL configuration Manager?

      if not try

      Also have you rebooted the system after the instllation of SQL
