It's hard to tell exactly what's going on, but I'll take a guess and give you a suggestion.

1. Are you sure your server is listening on localhost? Check your settings in my.ini or my.cfg, depending on your version or OS. There should be a line in the mysqld section that says "bind-address=". Do not bind to localhost.

2. Is the user 'sa' authorized to access your server using local host? Look in mysql.user. There needs to be an entry for 'sa' for host=localhost or host=
