Do you have TCP/IP installed?

What is the exact error message?

Does the following work:

mysqld-nt --standalone

Do you get anything in the mysql.err log in \mysql\data

If you have moved the MySQL installation from \mysql\ to another disk, 
you need to create a file c:\my.cnf that informs MySQL about this!
Check the file \mysql\my-example.cnf for some information about this!
