Drupal driving me mad!

Hi All, Been trying to set Drupal up now for quite a while......I keep getting this error message and cant seem to link the database to drupal......any thoughts please? I have the user names and passwords etc...all right.....I cant figure this out :)

Resolve all issues below to continue the installation. For help configuring your database server, see the installation handbook, or contact your hosting provider. Failed to connect to your database server. The server reports the following message: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'stephanie'@'localhost' (using password: YES). Is the database server running? Does the database exist or does the database user have sufficient privileges to create the database? Have you entered the correct database name? Have you entered the correct username and password? Have you entered the correct database hostname?
