apache now refused to start

i just got home from vacation to find my computer shut off; there was a power failure. i turned my computer on started my game server, dns2go and apache as usual and all 3 worked great. i started to have problems trying to get dns2go to work (to find out that dns2go went down like an hour ago, this happens sometimes) but of course i thought i was having problems with my ISP so i of course restarted the computer so it would run the DHCP scan to make sure that it would get the IP right incase it didn't get it last time (has happened before).
before restarting the computer i typed 'localhost' in the address bar of Mozilla and up came my website the way it should look

after restarting, i tried to start apache 2 ways from the apache/bin folder:
./apachectl start
./httpd start

both return this:
cannot determine localhost name
Use the ServerName directive to set it manualy

why does it suddenly stop working and how do i fix it?
btw i do NOT know what my REAL computer name is.... it's something like but i can't remember it exactly
