We need more information. How big is you system? Is it a periodic
simulation? Have you looked at the coordinates visually to ensure that the
molecule/solvent look OK?

This is an error is not supposed to happen. There can be a variety of
causes, but the most common is that the input coordinates are bad. If you
can't see anything by looking at the structure in a graphics program like VMD,
you might want to post how you created the prmtop and coordinate files.

Since you say it is your first time, working through tutorial B1 (if you have
not already done so) would be a good idea. Maybe that will show you where the
problem lies.
