    two things you should do so that somebody can help you:
    1-look into the windows events log (if you don't know where it is, google it) and
    copy the error text here
    2-more importantly look into the mysql server error log. it's usually a file with
    your server's name as its name and an extension of .err
    copy all of its contents to here too (with separation from the first file)

    did you use to have another mysql service installed on your server. if
    so run this command to remove it. make sure to look up the right
    service name:
    net stop oldmysqlservice
    then this:
    sc delete oldmysqlservice

    If the sc utility is not available for your version of Windows, download
    the delsrv utility from
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/existing/delsrv-o.asp
    and use the delsrv mysql syntax.

    then finally start the server manually like this:

    "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqld-nt"
    --defaults-file="C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\my.ini" "MySQL"

    see if you can get the service going!!
