So, propably you have installed PostgreSQL as a service (= standard on Windows )

Please digg out the eventlog of Windows (eventvwr is the programm) and
look into the application log.

To see what failed, also open services.msc and try to start pgsql-8.3

(do not forget to refresh)

What is EXACTLY created within data\pg_log?

is there a new logfile with a name/timestamp indicating it was created
"just at last system start" ? what is in that logfile?
