The Problem

When accessing a network resource, like a file server that is no longer responding or online, you will get the Windows error code 64. This error can indicate that a network resource is not connected to the network or is having hardware or software problems and is not responsive.

Taking care of the The specified network name is ... message

The logical place to start with Windows error code 64 is with network connectivity. Verify whether or not you are able to connect to other network resources. You should also check with other users or computers that are on the same network to see if they can reach the resource that you are trying to connect to.

If your computer is the only one that is unable to connect to the network resource and you cannot connect to other resources on the network, you will need to make sure that your computer is plugged into the network. Check the network cable to verify that it is plugged securely into your computer and to the wall jack.

If other computers are having a problem connecting to the network resource, the problem is a little more serious. Verify whether the other computers/users are able to connect to any network resources. If they are not, there is probably a serious network problem that will require a network technician to resolve.

If there is only one specific computer or server that you and others on the network cannot connect to, try the following steps:

  • Click on Start and then click on Run
  • Type cmd into the box and hit the Enter key.
  • The Command Prompt window will come up.
  • In the Command Prompt window type in ping “server name” (server name will be the actual computer name or IP address of the server)
  • If the results come back with time out message, the issue will need to be escalated to a network administrator or technician. They will need to check the network connectivity to the resource and the resource itself to verify whether or not it is up and running and online.
