The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion?

Had the same problem, I fixed it.

  1. Open SQL Server Configuration manager
  2. Click on the SQL Server Services (on the left)
  3. Double-click on the SQL Server Instance that I wanted to start
  4. Select the Built-in account radio button in the Log On tab and choose Local system from the dropdown menu
  5. Click apply at the bottom, then right click the instance and select Start
