Can't start LAMS - MySQL Not Running

I went through the prerequisites and completed the installation but ran into the following error when trying to start LAMS: MySQL does not appear to be running - please make sure it is running before starting LAMS.
1. When installing JDK I didn't change the path (unlike shown in the video tutorial) and it's in the Program Files folder (default location). When installing LAMS I located the folder manually.
2. I have XAMPP on my PC but when configuring MySQL for LAMS I stopped the services (previously started and using Port 3306). However, the service is enabled again on Windows startup. LAMS still didn't launch.
3. I have these lines below in my-default.ini file. Also, does it have to be renamed specifically to "my.ini"?
Question: How do I ensure MySQL is running? Is it through entering the password in the command line? First time using MySQL.
