Once you install WAMP server and open start WAMP server does a little white half circle appear in the bottom right (next to your clock).

What happens when you visit http://localhost/ in your web browser does it go to any page or show a 404 error

I have a Wampserver icon on my desktop, when I press thia nothing happens, nothing near the clock and also nothing happens if I go through the start menu, it all there but nothing happens.

I place the address in the web browser but the web browser cannot display this page.

well it looks like it hasn't been installed correctly, Did you install it and have no troubles? - you might want to use the WAMP forum ( as they will have more people who can help you set up WAMP.
