The latest version is 1.5.3a of XAMPP.
Perhaps you should install that version instead.

When you installed XAMPP 1.5.1 did you use the "setup_xampp.bat" ?

Try to uninstall the mySQL service completley.
Close everything down (even reboot).
Then reinstall the mySQL service again. Often that fixes issues.

Look at this post as it may be the fix for your issue too: ... 8557#78557
