Default Boot up message [Dell; ; winNT4]

sponsored links

 
Windows Millennium Edition has detected that drive C does not contain a valid FAT or FAT32 partition. There are several possible causes.

The drive may need to be partitioned. To create a partition on the drive, run fdisk from the MS-DOS command prompt.
You may be using third-party disk-partitioning software. If you are using this type of software, remove the emergency boot disk and restart the computer. Then follow the on-screen instructions to start your computer from a floppy disk.
Some viruses also cause your drive C to not register. You can use a virus scanning program to check your computer for viruses.

What caused this to start???

[B]What caused this to start??? [/B]

You better tell us, what did you do before you start to get the message, like what program you installed, what program you ran, what new hardware, or what have you downloaded....

The owner says it just started one day...he shuts down every night and reboots in the morning. At first it was an annoyance but it is now a problem.

Your answers really dont give enough clues to where the problem came from, and when you said at first he said its annoying, and now its a problem, and then you said, one day, it just started to have this error. You have totally confused me on the issue.

Please try to find out more and post back, the answers you get here, are only as good as the information you or him gives.
