URGENT! "sys log full" and NT4 VERY slow
Posted on 1998-12-24
I'm a complete newbie when it comes to NT and I just got a laptop for 2 weeks to work on a project. About the 4th time I booted the laptop I got a "The System Log is full" (or something) error. When I logged in NT was running extremely slow and I mean REAL slow like taking 10 minutes to redraw a simple window! I got another error that said the systems date and time is invalid but I don't have privileges to open the Date/Time control panel. I also received a message saying a driver or service failed on startup but I got this error before when the computer was fine and I think it's hust when the modems not plugged in. Anyway, I have no idea where to start and it would literally take me days to find the appropriate utilities on the system at the rate the computer's working. Can someone walk a newbie through the steps to get rid of this problem? It's Window NT 4 service pack 4.
