Installed XAMPP so I could work on WordPress site before going public, however, when I go to the XAMPP control panel (v3.0.12) the Apache module will not start. Operating Windows 7

Okay, great.  You need to repair windows (not format/reinstall) so you get all the normal system files back.  Also, have you run a malware sweep lately?

Are you attempting to start it as a service or are you just hitting the start button in the control panel?

Install WAMP, see if that works.

Okay, try WAMP just to be safe.  If WAMP works, then uninstall/reinstall XAMPP to see if that fixes it.

Went into Xampp folder --> htdocs ---> wordpress folder--->> wp-content folder. Edited wp-content-sample.php
 to change the  Listen port from 80 to 8080, also for ServerName localhost 80 to 8080.

then url reads http://localhost:8080/wordpress/
#
#Listen 0.0.0.0:80
#Listen [::]:80
Listen 8080

ServerAdmin postmaster@localhost

#
# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
#
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
#
ServerName localhost:8080
