Hello Everyone,

This is my first post so excuse me if I dont provide all relevant info right off the bat.

Today I built a new workstation for my job, got everything assembled and started the Windows 7 installation process. System looks like this

Antec Three Hundred Case
Corsair 550 W PSU
Core i7 920
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Mobo
G.Skill DDR3 1333 3x2gb memory
WD VelociRaptor 150 GB HDD SATA
DVD R/W IDE
ATI FirePro V3700 Video Card

I flipped it on and the POST screen came up, could access BIOS no problem so I went ahead and put in my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OEM disk and started installing. The installation process runs, reboots once and gets to the completing installation check then abruptly reboots. The system comes back on and shows the "Windows did not restart properly screen" weather I start normally or in safe mode I get a message saying that windows cannot complete installation in safe mode, in safe mode, or "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click ok to restart..." After restarting and booting to the disk to repair the installation, the repair tool says it is unsuccessful and that there was a failure in the installation process.

I have been searching for most of the day for a solution and have found that the problem is common with some varying solutions, none of which have worked for me so far. I also attempted to install Fedora Linux to isolate the problem but the computer would reboot during that install process as well (I reformat the disk for clean install after every attempt). This leads me to believe I have a hardware problem so to further isolate that I have tried:

Re-seating my memory
setting my memory timings from 7-7-7-20 to 9-9-9-24 as the manufacturer states
Tried installing on a 7200 rpm SATA drive

Same problem everytime. Has anyone come across this issue with windows/new system before? I am a novice at troubleshooting PC hardware issues so any help or advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks

Brett




There are a few issues at play here, so I'll spell it out in the simplest terms possible:

I've been getting the dreaded 'No Signal' after I do the install for Windows 7. I was able to somehow complete this install blind (the monitor was off) and subsequently can now get into Safe Mode. However, even by doing that, I cannot seem to get the drivers installed in a way that agrees with the system enough to let me into a Non-Safe Mode desktop. That's assuming this is even a driver issue!

The things I have tried to fix this issue are as follows:
Reinstalled many times
Tried VGA, DVI and HDMI connections
Tried to (but cannot) change refresh rate
Tried all of the advanced startup options (ie, VGA mode, etc)
Tried a different monitor (VGA doesn't seem to work at all with my computer. Can't even see post)
And a TON of other things

So, I'm thinking that if I can run Windows Update, maybe, just maybe, there will be an update that fixes this particular issue. Because I cannot access anything but safe mode, I have been trying to get windows update to work in safe mode to no avail.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated as this is frustrating me beyond belief.

I should also mention that I am using 7100 revision (latest I can get my hands on)
QX9650 Processor
EVGA 790i FTW Digital PWM
EVGA GTX 280 Video card
WD Green Cavier 1TB

Hello,

I Have Recently Done a Clean Install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Retail. I have literally tried everything but just do not understand why i Have A complete Freeze at Random Times( This freeze will have everything on the screen completely frozen and the mouse will move for maybe five seconds before also freezing.) Windows 7 Runs Good in Safe Mode So it has to be a driver is what i am thinking but i have no idea which one. I have updated the Display Driver numerous times. I tried Running the Display Driver that is there after the clean install, Which it froze still, I downloaded from Windows update, it Froze, I updated from Ati, It also froze. Like i said before I have also have ran in a virtual environment where it ran problem free with no freezes. I am completely stumped on this one. I have even look at the event viewer nothing really stands out before the critical Kernal Power error. I have also tried a registry cleaner and cleaned the registry that was the last thing i tried and still froze moments later also. I read on other forums that it could be the wireless but i have disabled the wireless device as i dont even use the wireless. My computer is a Homebuilt computer ASuS motherboard, AMD Quadcore, ATI Radeon 4800 series... I am positve it cannot be the RAM or anything like that because I run Vista Home Premium x64 flawlessly and have since i downloaded it. So I know It got to be some kind of compatibility issue i just have no idea where to start. If anybody has any idea it will be greatly appreciated because i am all out of ideas




My Acer 7736Z-4809 laptop (pre-installed w/ Win7 Home Premium 64bit, so I don't have the Win7 CD) was recently hit with a virus. I constantly got the BSOD "iaStor.sys" and a black screen. Startup Repair at first couldn't complete repair, but when I tried again, it found no errors. Tried System Restore to no avail. Was able to do a System Image Recovery using a backup on an external HD, but none of the programs worked (wanted to use Ad-Aware and Spybot to eliminate the virus). When I clicked on programs on the desktop or Start menu, nothing happened, didn't even get an "Open with." Even in Safe Mode, none of the programs worked. I checked the Task Mgr, and explorer.exe was still there, but RAID wasn't. Went to Control Panel Programs to uninstall/repair programs, but got message that programs seemed to be already uninstalled...it was like the programs weren't even recognized. Once in awhile when I clicked on IE8 in Windows Explorer (not via desktop shortcut or Start menu), IE8 actually opened, so I downloaded Hijack This and Avast anti-virus, but when I tried to install them, I got the msg: "Installation must be on a local hard drive."

Continued to get the "iaStor.sys" BSOD. I read to run Verifier and disable it, so I tried that (not sure if that made things worse). Tried to do another System Image Recovery, but this time it couldn't recognize the backup on the ext HD. Tried Startup Repair, and it couldn't complete repair. Went to Recovery Management to reset the OS, but my User ID(?) couldn't be found. Decided to do a Factory Install - during "Setup is preparing your computer for first use" I got the error msg: "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click 'OK' to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." Every time I try to restart it, I get the same error msg.

BIOS Setup Defaults:

Quiet Boot: [Enabled]
Network Boot: [Enabled]
F12 Boot Menu: [Disabled]
D2D Recovery: [Enabled]
SATA Mode: [AHCI]

Thanks in advance.




I tried to install Windows Vista RC1 Build 5492 on NAPA system, and it pop up an error message saying that "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpectedly error" on my first restart during installation process. And no matter how many times I re-install Vista, this still occur. I also tried to force the system to enter Safe Mode, but I couldn't complete the installation process in Safe Mode.




Hi,

My laptop is about a year old and suddenly BSOD's. Since then I've tried to do a complete system recovery twice, and each time I get a BSOD near the end, just after "Setup will continue after restarting your computer".

I cannot get into windows even in safe mode, so I'll list all the specs that I know:

Minidump files are attached. Probably not hardware. The BCC indicates a critical OS process either terminated suddenly or was closed.

First run a system file check to verify and repair OS files.

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

That one puzzles me.

Install of RC started from Vista but clean install
- freezes at first reboot
- reboot safe mode continues
- next reboot works ok
- next reboot freezes
- reboot safe mode succeed to boot but failed to continue setup because cannot be done in safe mode
- normal reboot, works fine

Install is finished.
Until then I assumed it was a driver problem. But now all drivers seems ok. No yellow marks.

And still every other reboot freezes - very early in boot process almost soon as the 4-color motif is completed. This is a hard freeze which require a reset button use. Then restarting the exact same way works. (I do not use the Repair option it proposed).

Motherboard is K9N Platinum, chipset is the MCP570Ultra, windows 7 driver are more recent than latest from nVidia so I did not downgraded them.

PS: was same problem in beta but I assumed it was due to being still beta back then.




Hey guys,

I tried looking for a similar issue already posted, but I couldn't find one. So, I'm posting here, and hoping I'm in the right forum and that it's a unique problem.

I bought my acer computer with windows vista on it, but qualified for windows 7 upgrade. Vista ran awesome, but I decided I wanted to use the upgrade so I put in the discs for the upgrade, and followed the prompts. I chose to do an upgrade rather than a clean install, and followed the prompts, after a couple of restarts, it said the installation was complete and it had to restart. But now when it restarts, it says windows is starting, goes to a black screen where I have a mouse pointer, but it's just a black screen and nothing seems to happen. I've left the screen up for hours, and nothing changes. Trying to boot up in safe mode brings up a screen saying that setup cannot be completed in safe mode and that it'll have to restart to finish the installation. Attempting to boot from the upgrade discs just tries to start and the same thing happens. So, I can't get to any desktop to do anything. Any help is greatly accepted.




Hello.

I had a fresh installed Windows 7 for like 1 month. I had the last drivers loaded, everything was working perfectly. Suddenly, this morning, the system became unstable, the flash web pages were too slow reading and processing and finally BSoD with 'nvlddmkm.sys' came up.

I restarted the system many many times but I never got it to enter windows normally, even though it did enter in Safe Mode. I formatted the PC (maybe this was my mistake), setting up windows 7 again. The process went fine, it restarted for the first time the computer after the copy but it couldn't run and finalize the setup due to the BSoD 'nvlddmkm.sys' again.

I have read the sticky post in this forum concerning *.dmp files but the problem is that I cannot access windows neither normally nor via Safe mode because the installation isn't complete. Not even the safe mode with command prompt is working.

What can I do?

Thank you
John




I am trying to install the Windows 7 RC 64-bit as a fresh install. I am coming from a Windows XP Home Edition. I backed up all my important data and restarted and booted to the Windows 7 RC DVD. I chose custom install and then formatted the partition (only took like 5 seconds. Strange) and continued with the install. It took about ~20 minutes and then restarts. The installation reads "Completing Installation" and then auto-restarts again. This time, I get the screen that says Windows was shut down incorrectly and it gives me the option to start in safe mode or normal. I start in normal (and tried safe mode) and then when Windows 7 loads up I get a message that says "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." Anybody have success beating this problem?

PS. I ran the Windows 7 Advisor program and passed.

Specs:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
2gb DDR2 Ram
350gb Hard Drive
NVIDIA Geforce 8600GT
Creative Sound Blaster Live




I'm having a getting x64 to reboot after the installation.

The installation bit completes then after a few restarts i get to a black screen with a mouse pointer and a bit of text in the bottom right corner that says "Windows 7 evaluation copy build 7100". At this point i cannot do anything.

I tried restarting in safe mode its gets a little further but then say setup cannot complete in safe mode and then resarts.

This is a fresh install. I burned the ISO using StarBurn on the slowest speed, I only have the mouse and keyboard and Ethernet plugged in.

Below is my specs, please help.

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz

I have been trying to get a friends computer running reliably off and on for over a month. The issue is an incompatability between vista, the mother board and video card. I did find a work around but it left the machine hamstrung. I had hopes a clean install of windows 7 would resolve the issue. It didn't and I am currently stuck on what else to try.

The computer was originally put together by a small shop about the time vista appeared on the scene.

Motherboard is an asus p5vd2-x. Processor Intel duocor. Video card: Nvidia GF-7300

She used the computer without problem for a couple of year or so but one day the video went wonky and the machine slowed to a crawl once I got it running again. After quite a bit of time I realized what had happened. The machine came preinstalled with the original vista before there were any nvidia drivers for vista. The builder had forced it to use the generic vgadrv.sys drivers. Eventually auto update installed an nvidia driver which crashed the system or slowed it down substantially.

There are about 30 drivers for this card of different vintages. I didn't try them all but did try about a dozen different versions stepping through from the oldest to most current. None worked. I then tried doing a clean install of vista in about a dozen different ways to get to at least SP1. I tried the online upgrade, the stand alone upgrade and a variety of builds with sp1 and sp2 slipstreamed into them. All ended up at a ntoskrn.dll fault during install.

I gave up and installed the original version of vista and forced it to use the generic driver. I turned off auto update so microsoft wouldn't again add the none functioning driver and crash the system once again. Lo and behold somehow microsoft managed to replace the driver again????

This time it did some strange stuff which forced me to completely redo the hard drive, replacing the mbr and wiping all data off the drive before repartitioning and reformating.

I then proceeded to do a clean install of windows 7 rtm x86 ultimate. The install looked promising and proceeded normally to the final reboot then the screen went blank and the computer just sat there. I rebooted it a few times hoping the install would see something went wrong and step past the error. It didn't work.

I then tried booting it into safe mode. I got a live screen stating "Setup is preparing your computer for first boot. and a few seconds later a message. "Setup cannot continue in safe mode.To continue installing windows reboot the computer."

Safemode uses the generic video driver so this tells me the black screen problem is again associated with the nvidia drivers windows installs. I tried breaking out of the error message to set the default driver from within safe mode but was unsuccessful.

I have poked around a bit in dos trying to find the inf files involved and/or the drivers being used but do not know the inner workings of windows well enough.

Any suggestions appreciated.




Hi guys I am hoping I can get some assistance troubleshooting a new computer build and windows 7 install

The system specs are as follows:

P55 mobo Gigabyte P55A-UD3P
i7 1156 2.8GHZ
8GB Kingston DDR3 10600
2 x 1TB WD Green Drives 7200rpm

Heres my problem I go to install Windows which albeit slow the first part completes, extracting, installing, updating etc and reboots what happens next is it gets to the 'Starting Windows' screen which goes for about 5-10 mins at which point the computer powers off.

Steps I have taken include a thorough memory test which came out clean, removing all but the basic components, testing with different graphics card which i knew to be working and installing on each of the two hard disks separatley and the same problem seems to appear.

The computer will boot up in safe mode at which point it tells me installation cannot complete in safe mode and requests a restart.

Any ideas??

Much appreciated.




Currently installing on a

Dell Dimension E521
3GB RAM
Onboard nVidia graphics card

Removed all expansion cards (firewire / wireless)

Clear out 160GB drive
Create new partition
Windows 7 install says it needs to make a 200mb partition for system files
Creates that and then a 150+ GB partition
Copies files
Reboots once
Gets to completing installation portion
Screen eventually goes black

I can see a 1 pixel line at the top of the screen
The PC is not locked up
I can move to mouse up to the top and see the tip of the mouse cursor

Try rebooting and going into safe mode says installation cannot be completed in safe mode
Let it sit for about 3 hours on the blank screen
Nothing

Any ideas?

An upgrade from Vista works just fine. I am thinking this may be a video card issue. I am going to try with an expansion video card later today. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts.




I am not sure if this is a Windows issue or Graphics issue.
I recently tried to update Catalyst Control Center from 10.3 to 10.4
I downloaded from ATI but when installing I get a BSOD.
I have tried switching off my firewall and antivirus but it makes no difference.
I have tried running the ATI uninstall but I get a BSOD there as well.
Running in safe mode makes no difference either.
I cannot seem to "restore to an earlier point" either.
It goes through the motions but on reboot I am told that it could not be completed.
Any help would be appreciated.
If any further info is needed please ask.




Hi guys!

I can see that it's a more or less common problem, that some nvidia driver won't install when running Windows 7.

Im currently tryin to solve the following problem on my cousins pc:
He want win 7, but when I tried to install it for him, it goes wrong.

What happens is that the install says that it makes the final configurations, and then it skips right to a black screen with a white blinking underscore. It never gets further than that. When restarting, win 7 install can't get done, because of some error.

I looked it up, and it all seems to have something to do with the default microsoft win 7 drivers for the nvidia graphics-card. The one win 7 installs simply don't work, and the entire win 7 installation cannot complete because of this.

They way to replace the drivers is to restart, press f8 to start in safe mode. When it's done, an error appears claiming that safe mode cannot be used. When this prompt appears, I can press SHIFT+F10 to open a command prompt. There I write compmgmt.msc to start the device manager. And there I can replace the driver with some working ones from nvidia.

My problem now is that I have downloaded alot of versions from nividia for the GeForce 9800 GX2 for win 7 64-bit. I run the setupfile, to extract the drivers to a usbdrive. I then access the usb drive to replace the driver, following the method described above. But windows 7 just keep claiming that no proper driver is located in the folder.

So now I have come down to this:
Either the nvidia driver is not uninstalled properly for manual install, when I just double-clicked the downloaded file, and transferred the content to the usb-drive.
OR I havent found the right driver yet.

Any suggestions?




running windows 7 ultimate 64 bitthe system keeps crashing/freezing, no BSOD, nothing in the event log, just complete system freeze.
sometimes it may crash several times a day, sometimes it may go for several days without crashing.
Some things I have found which regularly cause a crash.
Trying to print.
starting a program
web pages with flash or video

I leave my computer on 24/8, and it even crashes at night when it is not in use.

What I have tested....I ran memtest overnight, and problems with RAMI have replaced hard drivesI have tried 2 different graphics cards

Have tested the PSU with a PSU tester, no issues.Unplugged all external devices other than keyboard, monitor and mousestill problem persisted.So I have done a completely clean install of windows 7 on a new disk.Still the same problem.I don't have any way to test the CPU or motherboard as possible causes.I have run windows in safe mode for several days, no crash.
I have run from Ubuntu live for several days with no crash.
So it does seem to be a windows issue.

I cannot get a crash dump as the system is completely unresponsive, I have already followed instructions for force a crash dump via keyboard when it crashed, but this doe snot work.
The few times the system has BSOD'd, it does not create a dump file or the file is 0kb, there is plenty of space on the disk, and it is setup correctly as per the M$ KB article.

any suggestions.




I've a customer who has the same problem and I've waiting
to see if someone replied to this post for a fix. The
customer had a trojan removed from their PC and then
started receiving the same message whenever they tried to
run a dos program. When I started the machine in safe
mode everything worked fine. Today the PWSteal.Banker.B
trojan was reported by norton's on this computer which I
removed. This trojan was only discovered on June 17 and
is not supposed to affect XP. I decided to try running
command.com and sysedit to see if removing the trojan had
any effect on this problem. Much too my surprise and
relief it did. Hopefully this might help you if you go to
symantec's sight they have the information needed to
remove the virus. The file that the virus creates is
lsd_f3.dll in the system32 folder. Let me know if this
helps.

"Paladisious" on July 1st, 2004 said "The exact same
thing is happening to
me in Win XP Home, except I formated my machine, and
since then I've
reinstalled windows and all those lovely classic DOS
games, but that
'invalid adress' error keeps coming up when I try to run
them."

"noseBleeD " on July 1st, 2004 said "I am fairly sure
when it says the
address is invalid, it means it has gone beyond the end
of the memory
registers that are assigned to the program you are
trying to run.
Does this happen in safe mode?
This could be caused by a memory leak.
This could be caused by a bad virus that harmed your
hdd, and ram, or video
ram, or more.
I would verify the above posts like you said concerning
the winXp version
first, then try safe mode and see if problem still exist.
I would then boot into recovery console and run
chkdsk /f command.
I would the test memory with other known good memory and
if good, add more."

The most useful fact which I gathered from these threads
is that this is a
recent problem (Note the dates of the posts), since I
have tried many other
searches on Google, other search engines, and usenet
groups such as this and
found no other references to this problem. Therefore the
only references to
this problem are recent. This indicates to me that we
are dealing with a
virus, trojan, or malware which has began to show its
effects only in the
last month or so. Further evidence for this being a
recent virus is that
none of the above referenced threads includes any
definite answers or
solutions, just people trying to find answers to
(roughly) the same problem
at (roughly) the same time, indicating (to me) that this
is a new virus or a
new version of an old one.

I have already performed all of the usual tasks
associated with a difficult
problem:
1. Ran online panda-antivirus, trend micro, ranta-
antivirus, downloaded and
ran free AVG antivirus, then uninstalled it, and then
downloaded and ran
free AntiVir. Ran all of these again in safe mode except
for AVG free, which
doesn't like winXP safe mode and can't find core driver.
That's nine virus
scans which found nothing (due to the fact that, just
prior to noticing the
current problem, I had just run all of these scans and
more as part of
monthly maintenance).

2. In safe mode, and then again in regular mode, deleted
all files in the
following directories: Temporary Internet Files (for all
users, verifying it
to be empty, verifying that Content.IE5 was either empty
or deleted, for
each user and Admin and 'All usuers' and 'default user'
and localservices
and networkservices); Cookies; Windows/Temp;
Windows/Downloaded program
files (except for those downloaded program files
associated with the online
virus scanners); windows/prefetch; Windows/web;
C:recycler (except for
S-1-5-21-760979014-647424850-2722162428-1005, the actual
recycle bin, which
it won't let me delete); and then ran accessories|system
tools|disk cleanup
on all drives, in both regular and safe mode, deleting
everything which I
could (but everything was empty by then - in, fact,
everything had already
been empty because I had already done all of this just
prior to noticing the
problem).

3. Ran SpyBot search and destroy and Ad-Aware in regular
and safe mode.
Already clean.

Some things of note:
1. Since my primary partition (system c: drive) came as
NTFS, I have never
been able to access it directly when in DOS mode or when
booted from a DOS
floppy, since DOS can't recognize NTFS, so recently,
having finally grown
annoyed enough to do something about it, I searched the
net and downloaded
'ntfsdos', a DOS program which acts as a file system
driver for DOS/Windows
and that is able to recognize and mount NTFS drives for
transparent access.
It makes NTFS drives appear indistinguishable from
standard FAT drives,
providing the ability to navigate, view and execute
programs on them from
DOS. It is an older program which was apparently
necessary in the days when
FAt32 windows couldn't recognize NTFS. I mention this
merely for the sake of
completeness, since none of the other people in the
above referenced threads
mentioned this ntfsdos program, which is a relatively
rare program, and it
is unlikely that it would be present on any of their
systems, and therefore
unrelated to the present problem. However, one post
asked if the person had
changed from FAT32 to NTFS, but didn't explain why he
thought this might be
important, and although I didn't change from FAT32 to
NTFS, I just thought
I'd mention that I ran this NTFSDOS program so as to be
able to access NTFS
C: drive from DOS.

2. As suggested in one of the above-mentioned posts, I
ran Command.com, but
got the error "attempt to access invalid address". All
the usual dos
programs and associated files are present in system32
folder, and config.nt
and autoexec.nt appear to be fine.

3. My DOs stuff works fine in safe mode.

4. I don't seem to have the recovery console, or at
least I don't see it
listed when booting.

5. A month ago when last cleaning the system, I turned
off system restore
before running the virus scans, as always, but forgot to
turn it back on, so
if I want to restore windows I'll have to go back at
least a month. I'd
rather avoid that.

Sorry for the long post.
Any help is appreciated.

My father-in-law installed one of the Windows system
updates he gets when he is online and once complete he
shut down the machine to reboot. He now cannot boot back
up. He comes to a menu that gives him options of starting
Windows in safe mode, ultra safe mode and re-install last
successful system configurations. He has tried all of the
options and the machine just keeps shutting down every
thirty seconds. What might be the problem?

Thanks,




You can change ownership globally like so:
- Log on as "administrator".
- Start a Command Prompt.
- Type this command:
cacls "d:My Music Files*.*" /e /t /g everyone:F

You can achieve the same via Windows Explorer or "My Computer".
Click Start / Help / Search tab
Type Permissions
Click "File Permissions", then follow the instructions.

By the way, why the extensive cross-posts? Your question is
related to the operating system and has nothing at all to do
with music or multi-media. Let's be reasonable, shall we?

I copied a previous posting to hopefully get some answers again. I'm
still having problems. I'm trying to clean
up my files (.mp3's) and move some folders here and there (see next
post below for specifics). Some times when I
try, I get the cannot move files error message described originally.
When I look in Security tab, there are various users w/ various
permissions. Is there a way to globally change this so all folders
can be moved? Is there something I can do to make this work for all
folders.

Thanks in advance. Problem accessing folders/files (mp3) after XP clean

I did a clean install of Windows XP Pro SP2 on my C:/ drive. I have a
2nd HDD(G:/) with music, pictures and other folders/files on it. I
completely disconnected the 2nd drive while doing the XP install to
C:/. I'm having trouble accessing some of the folders/files on G:/.
It's a problem w/ my music folders. I have 8 folders some of which
work fine. When I click on others I get: "G:/music/newest is not

I try to open an .mp3 file, I get error messages. When I try to open
particular .mp3 files w/ open with Windows Media Player, I get the
error message: "windows media could not access the file." Clicking
"more information," I get "0xC00D11D2: Cannot access the file" with
reasons such as file already in use (which it is not) and then
statements about not having permission to access the drive (except
that I can access other folders/files on this drive).

I've got various folders and files that all open and work fine.
Problem just seems to be w/ music files.

I've run ckdisk and defrag.

I have a really nice collection of .mp3 files at risk here. Any help
will be greatly appreciated.

How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP

In XP Home you have to boot in safe mode to see the security tab. In XP
Pro
you have to disable simple file sharing.
