Make sure the SQL Service is running on your system before applying the update.

Open Start Menu > Run, type services.msc and press Enter.
Look for a service SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS). Double click on it, Set its startup type to Automatic. Click Start it its not started.
Download the SQL Server 2005 update from here : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en
Install the update.

This service pack upgrades all Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition instances and components to Service Pack 3 (SP3). If you need additional installation options, you should download this service pack at the Microsoft Download Center. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 955706.
