      I have installed Oracle 11g XE in my windows machine.
      I followed the steps to connect to the database but there is an error as shown below.

      SQL> connect
      Enter user-name: username
      Enter password:password
      ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress
      Process ID: 0
      Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0

      Please help me with this problem.
