Checking Windows Event Viewer – alvosu Feb 7 '11 at 6:41

Check the windows event viewer.

Also check the SQL Error log - if the service stayed up long enough to start writing to that, it may provide some useful information.

Error 1067 is a non-specific error, unfortunately, so any information you can provide from the error logs will help.

If you are using a system which having credentials managed by an active directory server, the issue seems to be your sql server credentials are not synchronized with active directory credentials

go to services ....> open all sql related services there should be five total. change the credentials shown there to your active directory credential. apply and start the process again. this works for me always
