First of all you need to be sure that when you installed sql server you also checked Database server. I assume you have.

Then you need to check if SQL is running.

You have to go to start and type services.msc in the search field.

then you have a list of services. go down to sql server and check if its running.

Now go to sql management studio and connect to your local server.

You also might have a instance name. like local server\sql express or an other name.

4 Methods to Change MS SQL Server Password


Have you ever forgot or lost your MS SQL Server password? Did you reinstall MS SQL Server or change SQL Server Password by some ways at that time? I once forgot my MS SQL Server password and I reinstalled My MS SQL at last as I failed to find some good methods to solve the problem. What annoying and terrible experience it is! In order to avoid reinstalling SQL Server for a second time due to the same reason, so I collect some methods to change SQL Server password for sa account.

Method 1: Use Command Prompt to Change SQL Server Password


Step 1. Open a command prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd)
Step 2. Type the follow commands, and press Enter after each line:
Osql –S yourservername –E
1> EXEC sp_password NULL, ’yourpassword’, ’sa’
2> GO
The yourservername is the name of your server, yourpassword is the new sql sa password.
The command line 1> also can be changed to other command, the model is EXEC sp_password ‘oldpassword’, ‘newpassword’, ‘sqlaccount’.


Method 2: Use the Query Windows in Management Studio to Change MS SQL Server Password

Step 1. Open SQL Server Management Studio
Step 2. Open a new query
Step 3. Type the follow commands and excute:
GO
ALTER LOGIN [sa] WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE=[master]
GO
USE [master]
GO
ALTER LOGIN [sa] WITH PASSWORD=N'NewPassword' MUST_CHANGE
GO
The NewPassword is set for your SQL Server sa account.


Method 3: Change SQLServer Password by Windows Authentication

If Builtin/Administrator is present in SQL Server, you can login with an ID which is member of Administrators group and change sa password in SQL Server. Just do as follows:
1. Login into SQL server using Windows Authentication.
2. In Object Explorer, open Security folder, open Logins folder. Right Click on sa account and go to Properties.
3. Type a new SQL sa password, and confirm it. Click OK to finish.
After restarting SQL Server and all its servers, you can log into SQL Server by sa login with new SQL sa password.


Method 4: Change MS SQL Server Password with Third Party Software

In addition to the methods above, you can aslo choose some SQL Server password recovery tool to change SQL Server password. MS SQL Server Password Unlocker is one of the good MS SQL passwrod reset tools which can help you change SQL Server password in a few seconds. It allows you to chage MS SQL password on SQL Server and Express 2000/2005/2008.

Following is a guide for you to change MS SQL password with MS SQL Server Password Unlocker.
Step 1.Download and install MS SQL Server Password Unlocker.
Step 2. Run MS SQL Server Password Unlocker, click Open, import your master.mdf file. All the user names of your MS SQL Server will be displayed.
Step 3. 3. Select an SQL account, click Change password button.
Step 4. Type a new password, and then click OK.
This SQL account password has been reset. You can login with it.

Well, the four solutions are the easy-to-use MS SQL Server Password Reset ways.

Replication


You need to either use a Domain Account if you are using Windows authentication or you need to use SQL server authentication.
The reason for this is because the user account that you are using only exists on the machine that you are on not on the machine that you will be replicating to.

SQL server won't work on my laptop


Two ways to access your server. First, make sure the SQL Server Service is running. Start | Run | Services.msc | Enter. Look for Microsoft SQL Server Service and that it's running. Or Look for the SQL Service Broker icon by the clock and see that it's running. The default instance of SQL Server uses the Hostname. Start | Run | Cmd | Enter. The type hostname. This will be the name to access to server. Then type IPCONFIG, this is then the IP address that you could also use to access it.

SQL Server runs on port 1433, so any firewall has to have it open.

Open Query Analyzer, type in the hostname or ip of the local box, type in "sa" and the password for sa (if setup in mixed mode) or Windows Authentication.

Once you login in, you should now see the databases in the Tree on the left side under the Server | Databases node.

Your description though states "SQL Server won't work on my laptop". TO answer this, the only two SQL Editions that work on anything other than "SERVER" software is SQL Professional and SQL Developer. All others have to be on a "SERVER" platform.
