If you want to know whether your MySQL server is alive, you can use the "mysqladmin" program in a command window as shown in the following tutorial:

>cd \mysql\bin
>mysqladmin -u root ping
mysqld is alive

The "mysqld is alive" message tells you that your MySQL server is running ok. If your MySQL server is not running, you will get a "connect ... failed" message.
