*ps: error message is the same in first image but its english.
After that, i tried to start sql server process in services windows regarding 3rd image. But it gave me this error message:
It means "Windows couldn't start SQL SERVER service on local computer. For more information see event logs. If this is not a Microsoft service, call provider and give this special error code: 3417"
I wanted to look system event logs from C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs directory but there was 84 different .evtx files, I couldn't know what to do. How can i fix this?
*ps: I'm also not little bit confused about this problem's scope. I also thought to post this on superuser and/or stackoverflow but this place looked more convenient to me. So, if i'm mistaken please warn me.
