You may want to check the application pool for your central admin site (this can be done with IIS manager).

It is possible that the app pool is in stopped state (due to some error or a service account password expiration, etc.). In this case you may need to restart the app pool.

If the app pool is working fine, you may need to check the SharePoint logs to get more details on your problem.
