Hi guys/gals... I just installed XP on my new machine (e6600, 8800 756MB GTX, 2GB DDR2 - Not that any of that matters really...) and after a few days ive gone to use the command prompt and been told by it : Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. C:\Documents and Settings\xxx>ping 'ping' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\Documents and Settings\xxx> It returns this message for EVERY command i type in...even the help function. Is this a known issue and if so how can it be fixed? Or is it a case of repairing the windows installation? Many thanks in advance, Odysee.
