Hi TAPOLA,

If you are getting this message, then rhe problem is not with your monitor at all. It is actually with your Windows XP operating system. Your monitor is working fine. Though to fix the problem you would need to get your Windows XP CD and boot off the disc, if you boot from the CD you will get a brief message "Press any key to boot from CD..." as soon as you see that you need to press any key within 5 seconds. If done successfully you'll see a different screen and its a blue screen with loading files on it. Afterwards it will be on the setup page so press "R" for recovery console and on the command prompt you need to type this command: CHKDSK /R and it will run scan and repair of Windows.It will take sometime, afterwards it will bring you on the prompt and you just need to type EXIT to reboot the system. Just let it reboot to Windows and see if it works.

Hope his helps!

Peace! :)

I am using a lenovo all in one ideacentre computer. The screen goes black for a few seconds then comes back


The screen goes black then comes back. When it comes back are you able to use the computer without any problems? When does this happen? Most times during the boot process the screen will fade in and out.

If this is not happening when you boot the system it's possible that your lcd screen might be going bad so keep an eye on it.

Black screen with messege( ntldr is missing)


Hi,

If ntldr is missing either the computer is trying to boot off the wrong device(usb drive, floppy, memory chip, etc) or the boot sector on your harddrive may be damaged.

Remove any and all removable disks, including cd's/dvd's, reboot the computer and try again. If you get the same message then your harddrive is either corrupted(software problem) or damaged(physical failure).

Let me know how this works out, don't forget to unplug things like printers or cameras that have memory card reader, even if there's no chip in them.

Hope this helps, let me know if it doesn't and I can provide you with the next steps.

Gateway laptop mx3414-black screen cannot load windows


Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Recovery cd for acer aspire 3000


The "NTLDR is missing" error can sometimes occur when the boot.ini file is corrupt or missing but in your case it sounds like the HardDrive is the problem.

Try the Following:
Start>Run>Type "Cmd" and enter>Type "dir c:" and enter>Type "chkdsk" and enter. Your computer might promote you to chkdsk later Press "Y" and restart you computer

The Acer Aspire series usually have a eRecovery manager than ables you to burn 2 recovery disk which you should have done when you first got the laptop. Since you haven't done that you'll have to buy new recovery CD/DVD
From:
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/asp/product.asp?product=1241&ph=search&keywords=Acer,Aspire,Recovery,CD&recor=1&SearchFor=any&PT_ID=100



OR you can try the following.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a restore point that goes back to before your NTLDR problem started.

Please Rate, Thanks.

Ntldr is missing, this information is regularly coming even though I am trying to format my laptop acer 4715z with cd also when once it was it catched booting and started the process of formating after...


1. You must have a copy of "ntldrusb.zip" file.
USB: Right click the ntldrusb.zip file and choose "Extract All" Next>Next>FinishThen Insert your USB Stick into the working computer (remove any other USB sticks, and be sure there isn't anything on the USB stick that you want since we are about to erase it);
Double-click HPUSBFW.EXE in the ntldrusb folder;
Check "Create a DOS startup disk" and "using DOS system files located at" then press the grey button with the "...";
A box will come up asking you which folder to select, point it to the "dos system files" folder;
Press OK; Press Start; Press Yes; Let it run for just a few minutes till a new box comes up; Press OK; Press Close;
Open the "putonusb" folder, copy all the files, paste them onto the usb stick (just in the root of the drive, like E:\);
Eject the USB Stick; Remove it from your computer;
Place it into the computer with the "NTLDR is missing" issue, reboot it.
You will see the Windows 98 screen pop up for a second, then you will see a black screen with white letters prompting you to "replace boot sector of the drive C: (y/n)", press the y key;
It will go to a C:\ prompt, reboot the computer by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del; (now go to step 4)

4. Put the new floppy/cd-r/usb you have just created into the computer that gets the NTLDR is missing error message, turn the broken computer off.

f you get back into Windows again, you can change that "1st Try This" menu by going into Start > Control Panel > PerformanceAndMaintenance/System > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery section, Settings button > System Startup; then change the "Default Operating System:" to the selection that worked for you, and change the box that says "Time to display list of operating systems" to however many seconds you want (usually 1 second). Click OK twice.

Faulty monitor


This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps.
