Help! trying to improve page ranking and google webmaster tools keeps showing URL's Not Found error. The problem is I've scored the webpages it is referring to and cannot find anything that is linking to those webpages.

The pages that it is referring to were up there at the beginning of the year but have since been taken down/renamed and all ref to those pages have been removed.

I'm still ranking 0 w/Google and really need to improve the organics of the site. Can someone please help.

check the date of the report these stats of google can remain quite a while. if you have changed page name you might want to consider using 301 redirects to the new pages.
what do you do to promote your site?
sadly you have to be patient with google sometimes. page ranking is not the ultimate goal but that is usually quickly uprated with a few quality links

thanks edbr. it just seems like it is taking a awfully long time for these errors to go away. This is really my first attempt at designing a webpage, I posted a question here earlier in the year when I was trying to put it up. Do you have any suggestions for how to obtain "high quality links"? There are lots of websites that make promises, but unsure weather or not they would be worth the money.

its good to be cautious, there is quite an industry developed and as you suggest not all are genuine.
to start you could search for directories. there are many around that will provide linns if the pages are indexed, check the name , if for instance the directory is called ie. westcorr.com it may be a dropped domain trying to get some money off people before the pr drops to accomodate its new usage.
check the cached pages for it.
search the web for sites complimentary to your sites subject and e mail them. you can expect a lot of nothing in reply, but a few links from good sites will be a plus for you especially if they have a high google PR.
