Recongnition of Classes

Right... so i installed java on my new computer the same as i'd done it on the about 8 other computers i'd done so on... Programs created on this computer will compile fine, but when i try to run said programs, i am informed of a NoClassDefFoundError. As best as i can hypothesize, my computer is(for some reason) not recongnizing class files. further supporting this hypothesis is the fact that when i try to access a method from another (already compiled) class, the program will not compile as it does not recongnize any outside class to draw the method from. So, as i see it, .class files are somehow invisible to the computer. Any time i try to access a class, be it "java _" or using a method from a class, it draws up blanks...
I'm at about my wit's end...
