Before a crash and reformat I used to be able to connect my desktop and laptop. Now I get a message "service server not installed" I have put in my Windows CD and run Optional components but to no avail. What must I do to restore the connection I previously enjoyed. Thank you

If you click on start, then run and type services.msc and press the ok button you should get to your services control panel. Scroll through the list till you see a service named server. Does this service exist? If so, if you look under the status column is it started?

I also moved this to the appropriate forum.

You really should reinstall. The Server service is supposed to be installed by default when you install the operating system. This is Windows XP correct?

Thank you - guess I'll have to do that. I was hoping there was another way. Appreciate your reply
