got a problem here, i am installing oracle 8i personal edition on my windows xp. once the installation is complete, i am able to connect to the database using SQL PLUS. but when i restart my pc, and try to connect again, i encounter this error ORA - 013034 cant connect to oracle.
i took a look at the local services and realise that my database is not starting. i try to start it manually and it failed.
then i try to delete the database and create a new one. with the new one i can connect to it. but the problem surface again when i restart my pc. apparently i my local service for that new database is not starting when i restart my pc.
anyone know of any solution or have encounter similar problem before, i would greatly appreciate your help. thanks mate!
