Some things to consider--

1. Do you have the proper client ?
2. Is listener running?
3. Is ORACLE_SID set properly?

open command prompt
tnsping ORACLE_SID ( replace the correct oracle_sid name here)
result ? ( will give u clue what is the cause ?)
.
another check
set ORACLE_SID=name of oracle_sid
sqlplus /nolog
conn / as sysdba

result ? ( if successful, then the problem is with your listner and it's setup,availability....)
(if not successful, problem is with your database avialability, setup...)
