Hello All,

I'm trying to install MySQL on my laptop.

When I installed it successfully, my code didn't show the desired answer.
so I removed and reinstalled MySQL and since then, even if I enter correct existing password followed by new password and confirm it.
It shows me Error no 2003, "Can't connect to MySQL server on localhost(10061).
I checked the process MySQL, but it stops within a moment after starting through control panel.

when I do the same through command prompt by giving sc qc MySQL, it shows me access denied when I'm the admin of the machine.

Please help.

Have you tried resetting the MySQL root password? Also, are you sure the MySQL instance is running?
