Hi Kaybee12,

If you have the Windows operating system cd, then all you need to do is insert the cd and choose repair system files.

This will fix the issue.

Thank you and good luck.

I've inherited a computer with Novell, and I don't have any passwords. AND the disk drive isn't working. I have XP and DOS boot disks. How do I get past Novell and force the computer to "see" the...


Sounds like you've "inherited" a business computer, pretty sure illegally too. When a computer is supposed to change hands, there shouldn't be any software/o.s. on there. I know people do fresh installs for sale so it's ready to go, but with Novell on the system, and p/w protected too, I'd say it came into your hands in a 'this computer has not been signed off in the correct way' kind of way.
Get yourself a copy of windows p.e.(pre installation environment), it's a windows os on a cd so doesn't need installing(works from Ram). You can then view the C: drive from viewer. You can even format the disc using windows pe.

I'd check if your legaly 'allowed' the computer before turning it on though.

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows


When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

NTLDR is missing in my computer


Missing NTLDR can be caused by any one of these problems :-

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
New hard disk drive being added.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.
Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS

With Windows XP follow these instructions
  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

If this doesn't work, then the last resort is to install Windows again, plus the computers device drivers and your programs.

How to resolve low c drive space


Try restarting your computer. If you don't restart every so often, the cache memory in your computer, which holds temporary files, can run out of space. You can also go into your system tools under accessories in the start menu and use the disk cleanup to get rid of unnecessary and temporary files, or defragment your drive to rearrange files so the computer maximizes available space.

Windows doesn't support plug and play until Windows Me. Upgrade to Windows XP. Be sure your computer has the minimum requirements for Windows XP before changing the opperating system.
