Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to

open a connection to SQL Server) "
I recently formatted my PC and installed Windows 7. I took a from my backup drive a project i am currently working on. I installed visual studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008R2. I restored my database in my SQL Server and edited my new connection string and when i test my application i get this error. I am running everything on my local computer. When i just drag a table from my database and drop it in one of test pages within the same app, i get in a grid view my data. i am confused and i have finished the application and i just need to demo it for my boss. Help soon is very appreciated!
