sql timeout when not using sql

Im in the process of learning 3.5, currently on webparts and co.

Ive started a new project for webparts, not using a database with it, but when i go to view the website (dev server), i get an sql timeout??

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server.

Just to be clear, there is no mention of sql anywhere in the project. Should i just start again?

Edit: May be relevant

(provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)


The webparts infrastructure talks to a database.
