unable to run mysql server 5 on windows

on trying to change the
password it says this:

C:\PROGRA~1\MYSQL\MYSQLS~1.0\BIN\MYSQLA~1.EXE: 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'

telent localhost 3306 says "could not open a connection to localhost"

and typing:

C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>mysqld-nt
061018 21:17:10 [ERROR] Can't find messagefile 'C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL
Ser
ver 5.0\share\english\errmsg.sys'
061018 21:17:10 [ERROR] Aborting

What could be wrong?
