a good starting point to figure out what's wrong would be the Tomcat log. Specifically you should have a look at the "catalina.out" file in the "logs" subdirectory inside the Tomcat directory. Without the log it's hard to tell what's going on...

Exactly how are you trying to start Tomcat?
I have installed tmomcat 7.0 by using windows service installer ,I am going to the shortcut monitor tomcat from start menu,when i click over that a tomcat's properties window opens.There i
try to start the server but after processing it doesn't start.
I have tried tomcat 6.0 set the C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_02\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll file as Java Virtual Machine.Now its working,earlier i was using tomcat 7.0 and my operating
system was windows 7.
