MySql closes when password entered

Whenever I type my password into the mysql command “Enter Password” prompt, I hear a system beep and then mysql closes. I have installed winamp5 1.4.4 and have Windows XP.

I would appreciate any help with this

i think you enter the wrong password to mysql. don’t run mysql client from MySQL command linr client, but run cmd(command prompt) and type mysql -u username -ppassword if you couldn’t log in, stop the server (e.g. type net stop mysql or stop mysqld) and start it with --skip-grant-tables option.
then use mysql database.
update the user table change the password where user is root.
use “flush privileges” to flush it.
restart your mysql server without the --skip-grant-tables option.
