Setting up password fails


Having a problem setting up a password for MySQL

The reported problem when attempting to set up a root password is;

C:\mysql\bin>mysqladmin version
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)'
Check that mysqld is running on localhost and that the port is 3306.
You can check this by doing 'telnet localhost 3306'

When checking this:

C:\mysql\bin>telnet localhost 3306
Connecting To localhost...Could not open connection to the host, on port
3306: C
onnect failed

Appreciate any suggestions
