Localhost does not respond

I had installed XAMP a long time ago in my PC (Windows XP) but just yesterday when I tried accessing localhost, the page kept on loading and loading but giving no results. If I try to kill the process the page stops loading and informs me that it cannot locate the page.

"Are you running the XAMPP control panel? Does it say that Apache is running?

Here is link to the XAMPP windows FAQ item for Apache not starting http://www.apachefriendsdotorg/en/faq-xampp-windows.html#nostart.

The Skype conflict was what bit me in getting Apache to run. Easily fixed though . . . Go in Skype to Actions --> Options --> Connection --> remove the check mark at ""use port 80 for an alternate port"" and restart Skype"
