MySQL Server 8.0.29 failed install (server won't start)

Hello!
Recently I was trying to checkout a mysql hw assignment I was doing and I wasn't able to connect to my server for some reason, it had been previously working and I hadn't purposely changed anything to my knowledge. I kept getting the "Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost:3306'" error.

I tried manually restarting the server, double checked if it had an update, tried to see if any settings had been changed, and finally uninstalled it with the intent to reinstall it.

When I tried to reinstall the server bit, it never made it past the "starting the server" portion of the install. I made sure my computer didn't have any leftover files before trying to reinstall it as well.

I've googled up a storm and tried to troubleshoot it myself but I'm not well versed with mySQL so I haven't able to do anything to fancy. I'm not sure what to do and how to fix it. I willing to try anything tbh, I just don't know where to start. Thanks for any responses or help!
