Difficult without much more information, but useful things to check are ...

1. Registry 'looks ok', ie HKLM\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\...contains the locations of your Oracle installation
2. Are you using a firewall? This could potentially interfere with starting the listener if inbound/outbound loopback is blocked.
3. In a command window run 'lsnrctl start' and post the message you receive.
