Having the worst luck installing Magento need help please!

No matter what I do or try I seem to run into dead ends. It all started when I accidentally deleted my root user and couldn't log back into phpmyadmin. I have tried editing every configuration file available nothing worked. Finally I tried to install Ubuntu on a virtual box and try that but of course I can't figure out how to install magento on there and after trying for hours I somehow managed to crash Ubuntu and it won't even let me log back in soo...that idea isn't working for me. I am on a windows 7 machine...tried uninstalling/reinstalling XAMPP completely. That worked, I am able to get back into phpmyadmin but now I can't reinstall Magento..I get so far as the installation screen but as soon as I type in my username/password and all of that information and click next it flashes then goes to a screen that says:

There has been an error processing your request

Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.

Error log record number: 1903473701


Not really sure what to do anymore and I am on the brink of going insane..I HAVE to get this to work my business depends on it and I am running out of ideas..any assistance to get me back up and running would be very grateful I have been messing with this for a good week now and no progress whatsoever.
