What exactly have you tried to repair this issue?
Read the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log
file for any clues.
Is Apache and MySQL showing a green running indication in the XAMPP Control Panel?
Have you allowed Apache through your firewall and or your AV scanner etc.?
Can you see the XAMPP Welcome Demo Page when you type http://localhost
in your browser?
