- ensure Oracle_Home in tnsnames.ora if using is set
correctly.
ex.
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SID = MYSID) (SERVER = DEDICATED)
(ORACLE_HOME = put_oracle_home_here)
)


- ensure that your ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME are set correctly.

- ensure that your listner.ora points to the correct ORACLE_HOME.

Is your database instance started?

From Settings > ControlPanel > Services
Check the status of OracleService<sid>

If the status is not STARTED, start it up.
Also check and start the OracleTNSListener service.

Then from a DOS prompt :

SQLPLUS /NOLOG
>connect SYS/password@service AS SYSDBA
>STARTUP pfile=...

This should bring up your database.

Your processes can't identify database, check ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME. I got the same error, then my ORACLE_HOME in Windows client enviroment was:
  ORACLE_HOME=/ora/product/
but in, server enviroment was:
  ORACLE_HOME=/ora/product
(note the slash '/'). I started database with Enterprice Manager console from client, and couldn't connect to it from server shell.
Check all your configuration files (tnsnames.ora,...) and enviroment variables, if there are the same values for ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME.
