Please detail exact situation when this occurs. For example, turn on machine, get screen x, y, z, then... Also, have you checked to make sure that you don't have a CD (especially a Windows CD) in the drive? It almost sounds like the system believes that you want to repair Windows for some reason...

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.

Boot manager is missing HP pavilion dv6 notebook windows 7

This sounds like a common issue. The boot manager file "NTLDR" Can become corrupt or go missing due to a few situations.
1) Shut down improperly
2) Virus
3) Bad hard disk
4) Windows being windows.
Too fix this simply use a windows 7 cd and boot from it.
Choose the Repair option and let it do its thing. If i recall there's also a repair startup option you can use aswell.
Windows repair usually fixes the problem but if that doesnt work you can also put the hard disk into another computer and copy over replacement boot loader files.
  • ntldr, the main boot loader itself
  • NTDETECT.COM, required for booting an NT-based OS, detects basic hardware information needed for successful boot
  • ""
    Try that. The windows repair usually works but if you have to use the alternative and it doesnt work it could be your MBR. Windows repair also fixes this but theres an old command you can run from the dos shell of the cdrom "mbrfix or fixmbr" That will take care of it.
    Good Luck :)

    Repairing Windows Vista using bootrec.exe

    Bootrec.exe tool can be used in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista:
    • A master boot record (MBR)
    • A boot sector
    • A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store
    To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
    2. Press a key when you are prompted.
    3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
    4. Click Repair your computer.
    5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
    6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
    7. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
    Bootrec.exe options

    The Bootrec.exe tool supports the following options. Use the option that is appropriate for your situation.

    /FixMbr Use this option when you must resolve MBR corruption issues, or when you have to remove non-standard code from the MBR.

    /FixBoot Use this option if one of the following conditions is true:
    • The boot sector has been replaced with a non-standard Windows Vista boot sector.
    • The boot sector is damaged.
    • An earlier Windows operating system has been installed after Windows Vista was installed. In this scenario, the computer starts by using Windows NT Loader (NTLDR) instead of Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe).
    /ScanOs Use this option when there are Windows Vista installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list.

    /RebuildBcd Use this option when you must completely rebuild the BCD.

    Note: It will work with all windows Vista versions

    Windows is corrupted or the hard drive has issues. If you have a backup cd recovery disc try it now, if that fails have the hardware tested for possible replacement.

    It is not starting up


    Good day. I suggest for you to reinstall windows and use the repair options. Usually software encounter errors or some files might get corrupted causing your computer not to boot up properly. The repair option in Windows XP will help you to fix those issue. here are the steps to follow:

    1. Rule out hardware issues. Windows Repair will only fix software problems. Hardware issues can also cause boot problems (i.e. bad hard drive, memory, CPU, or power supply).

    2. Backup. It's always a good idea to backup your important data before making changes to Windows XP. Relax, if you follow these instructions your data will be perfectly safe.

    3. Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

    4. A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.

    5. When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following "Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.

    6. Then press F8 to continue

    7. Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

    8. Then just choose repair option to repair your Windows Xp

    9 Then it should work. If iin any case that will not solve the issue, you might try to install fresh copy on Windows Xp

    Hope this information will help you resolve your issue. Have a great day.

    Im having trouble booting my northgate stap4dr17c. i think the bios got deleted or somthin??? it wont boot at all. i tried using a different hard drive with windows xp and another with windows 7 ultimate,...

    If you get to the Windows repair from Windows 7 then you must have a BIOS intact. BEST way to Diagnose this would be the Magic of Kubuntu Linux Make a Boot disk from a functional machine.
    If Kubuntu Linux runs from the CD/DVD drive boot disk for a timely period (Do not install Kubuntu)
    Then chances are that you have issues with how your windows is configured. Or a bad hard drive (Viruses (possible)) DownLoad Kubuntu Link page. 32/64bit versions

    I've got an Dell Inspiron 9300 LCD

    Try running diags Fn + Power button see if anything fails

    Since you can boot to the BIOS, then the system is posting, so I suspect you have either a Windows issue or a hard drive issue.

    If the HDD passes diagnostics, I'd try booting to the XP CD and see if you can press R for recovery console and run the command CHKDSK /R and see if that resolves

    Post back with the results

    Hi i have an acer laptop lcd screen with windows vista i dont know what i did but i was uninstalling some things on my laptop cuz i was running out of space any idea on how to fix it?

    does windows boot?

    if not you need to break out the repair disks that came with the computer, they will bring it back to factory state.

    if windows boots than you should stick to useing the windows uninstaller to unistall programs. deleting random things may cause an issue with a dynamiclly linked library, even third party DLL's may boot at startup if windows regestry thinks it should be there but it isnt then there will be a boot error that will result in a blue screen on boot.

    the fix is to re install the OS, using the original repair disks or by aquiring a windows install disk from a friend.

    When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen

    Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

    Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

    If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

    Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

    1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
    2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
    3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
    4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
    5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
    6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer
