Changing SQL Server password from control panel

I decided to change my SQL Server service password from control panel --> services, but after that I couldn't connect to my instance of the server. Any suggestions?

No, because your connection to a SQL Server has absolutely nothing to do with the password for the account SQL Server is running under. The only thing that password affects is whether the SQL Server starts up.
