    Welcome to the forums!
    If I understand correctly you are not able to connect to your SQL Server after your restore the system. According to http://www.5starsupport.com/faq/xp-system-restore.htm#1-5 windows system restore will leave your installed programs intact. Was SQL Server 2008 installed before, and more importantly after SQL Server 2008 installation did you Create a restore point!!
    Can you please post the error message!! So that we can understand the scenario better!!
