Port "8083" is one of the default port being used by JBoss. If you have an "Active Port" application, check which application is using port "8083" and stop that application before running JBoss. (Usually if you're running an IM application like yahoo messenger, it will also use port 8083).
If you don't have "Active Port", edit the file "jboss-service.xml". Change all default ports into a different value by putting "1" at the end of the current port number, for example, change "8083" to "80831". Do this with the other default ports as well.
