is your database open.
Is this the only database/instance on that machine?
else goto command prompt use SET ORACLE_SID=yoursid and start.
edit your sqlnet.ora and comment all entries and try again.

ORA-12560 TNS:protocol adapter error

Cause: A generic protocol adapter error occurred.

Action: Check addresses used for proper protocol specification. Before reporting this error, look at the error stack and check for lower level transport errors.For further details, turn on tracing and re-execute the operation. Turn off tracing when the operation is complete.

If Mahesh's advice doesn't help, follow this link and see what other people did about it.
