Can't login to mysql

Specs: winXP, amd64/1Gb
The craziest thing just happened. I started apache and mysql using the xampp control panel. Then I used the windows command line and was in mysql/bin to login into mysql as usual by typing

'mysql -u root -p'

When I try to login it says ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

I didn't do anything different but restart my computer. Was there a step I forgot to do before logging into mysql?
My logins have worked before, so it can't be any of the settings.
