check whether Web Server service is running or not? mean Server is running or stop.

to make sure about the service try http://localhost:8080/

if it runs then go to the Tomcat Manager and check admin.jsp is there or not ?

"The Page cannot be displayed".

sounds like one of those "friendly" Microsoft IE messages that conceals the actual error message. There is an option to turn them off so you can see the real reply from Tomcat.

Try Internet options dialog -> advanced settings - uncheck the "friendly" HTTP error message box.
