You first need to do what the error says, and that is to look in the event viewer. There should be more specific information in there.

Run the installer again. It might be missing something or the service account has insufficient rights on the folder.

Changing the service account for SQL Server is not simply a case of changing the details in the service manager. There are a lot of other permissions that need to be set for SQL to be able to run.

You have to use SQL Server Configuration Manager to change the service account. This will automatically set the required permissions for the new account.

If you've used Configuration Manager to change the account and it still doesn't work, then follow the instructions in the error message and check the event logs to find the details of the problem.

also check on the registry editor, check whether TLS 1.0 has been disabled on HKLM folder.if it is enable it and that should resolve your problem.
