What does the MySQL error log say?
It should be <machine_name>.err and be in your mysql\data folder.

By default that is usually C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.x\data

where 5.x is the version of MySQL you have.
C:\ProgramData folder is hidden by default (thanks MicroSoft). You'll need to un-hide it.

It's a plain text file you can read with notepad.
It will tell you why MySQL stops when you start it.

Good luck,
