what version of sql? what happened to precipitate this? did sql ever work on this box?
without looking into it more, maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling sql server (got database backups?). do you have multiple versions on this box? do you have normal operation of this box. lots of free defragged hd space with chkdsk /f run on it? the memory you see is the right amount?
