Yu should get a bit more than an experiment, I stopped the 
PostgreSQL service on my laptop (WinXP) and tried to connect with 
pgAdmin - and a large window popped up quoting the error from libpq 
("could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061) Is 
the server running on host "" and accepting TCP/IP connections 
on port 5432?") and giving all sorts of useful advice.

Do you not see something like this?
