Please read Administrator's Guide.

But what do you want to start a 10g database from a 8i client version?

Shocked This is cause of Illegal Shutdown of ORACLE Shocked
So it may help you to recover
Try out following.
Open Dos command Prompt
and move to parent directory
c:> sqlplus /nolog
sql> connect sys/manager as sysdba
sql>shutdown immediate
sql> startup
sql> exit
Please Note down the parameters and update in initSID.ora file.

Welcome to the forum.
Please take time to read OraFAQ Forum Guide.

Note this is a professional forum and not a social, so limit the usage of emoticon.
Also, you might answer to newer question (without mentioning that you ask OP to do almost exactly what he did).

Regards
Michel
