Dear Monique, probaly there is a problem in your md.mdp file.
in the section where you define the weak coupling, must be present all the 
groups of your system.
Look at this example
; Temperature coupling
Tcoupl                   = yes
; Groups to couple separately
tc_grps                  = Protein SOL NA+
; Time constant (ps) and reference temperature (K)
tau_t                    = 0.1 0.1 0.1
ref_t                    = 300 300 300

As you can see, this a system made of a protein, water and an Na+ ion.
Now you must define it to match you system, (a look at the groups in your 
index file will help you)
I'll hope this help you
