Error help in eclipse

I have imported a project into eclipse(using import, cut and paste, and every other way I can think of) I get a RED X on the project folder but no indication of where the error is. The project is entirely JSP (if that helps) I am not sure what I am doing wrong or how to locate the error. I do not believe it is with the code (as I am told it is working). The error is probably with the user and being totally unfamiliare with eclipse and only a bit familiare with jsp. I have tried serching for answere but can't seem to find any ('eclipse red x on project' is not a good key for a search)
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Eclipse doesn't support compiling JSPs out of the box. Are you using a plugin? If so, which one? If you are using a plugin, check the build path for the project contains everything.

Another thing to try is to turn off extra validators for your project. Sometimes, you will get errors for malformed HTML and the like.
