Hi Chee,
your equation is singular at the origin. How ever a convergent power
series
exist and a numerical solution is possible.
The problem ov NDSolve[] ist that it divedes the equation by x and get
Sin[x]/x but it does not calculate a Limit[] at x->0 it just find a
(not existing) singulaity. You cando the following:
Define the Sin[x]/x function
deqn = x y''[x] + Sin[x] y'[x] + 2 x y[x] == 0
sinc[0.] := 1
sinc[0] := 1
sinc[x_?NumericQ] := Sin[x]/x
deqn2 = (Simplify[#/x & /@ deqn]) /. Sin[x]/x -> sinc[x]
and
NDSolve[{deqn2, y[0] == 0, y'[0] == 1}, y[x], {x, 0, 2}]
works as expected.
Hope that helps
Jens
