Tom, You got the message because Sin[x] was not a machine size real number at the point where Plot was trying to evaluate it. It would be much more helpful if you had supplied us with the Plot statement you used, and not just the message. Most likely, you used a different iterator variable than x. Therefore Sin[x] could not be evaluated to a number because x remained as a symbol.
