A good place to start would be being able to see the server console. The fact that you can't see the console makes me think that you may be specifying the wrong port number or you may not have the JAVA_HOME variable or the CATALINA_HOME variable set properly.
First, what port is your Tomcat server running on? By default I think it runs on 8080. If you haven't changed this make sure you are going to http://localhost:8080in your browser.
If that is right and you still can't see your server console, make sure you have your environment variables set, otherwise nothing will work. Click here for a quick setup in Windows If you have a different OS just search google for JAVA_HOME.
If you have done both of these things and still you can't even see the server console, you may have to provide some more specific information.
Once you can get to the console, if you are still having problems deploying servlets then that is a whole different issue, but start by getting your server configured.
