Can you verify the SQL Service is running? (Start -> Administrative Tools -> Services)
I would also look in the Event Viewer for any errors.
You may also want to try rebooting to see if that resolves the issue.
If you see any errors in the Event Log or can post the full exact error here, it will help troubleshoot the issue.
Hope this helps!

I don't think SQL is the issue, I create a new website with nothing in it and it still won't run locally. just keep getting page not found, then i diagnose the problem and get the same Localhost not able to establish a connection on port (whichever port
number it takes)
