When the computer boots up and says NTLDR missing it can mean several things, but all of the problems are usually attributed to something wrong with the hard drive/filesystem. I assume your notebook was fully functional before. If that is the case: 1.) Your file system may be corrupted / damaged. Try booting from the Windows XP cd. The go to Recovery console.(R) follow the instructions on screen until you reach a prompt (i.e. C:\WINDOWS\) then type "chkdsk c: /r" (without the quotes). This is basically running a disk check with XP builtin utility and the /r is saying to do a full scan and fix problems if encountered. If you get an error that says "unrecoverable errors encountered" then your hard drive is pretty much damaged. If it goes all the way through then there is still some hope. 2.) Your hard drive may be failing and if important data is on there you may need to plug it up in another system to try some data recovery. Well I'll need some more information to make a better analysis! Try the chkdsk and tell me the results! Regards, Babb

NTLDR missing on XP desktop


NTLDR is the boot loader for windows XP. This is the part the kick starts the entire process of XP loading. It is located at C:\NTLDR One of the easier ways to fix this is Either boot in to the recover console from a Windows XP disc, or download Hiren Boot CD, burn it to a disc. Insert the CD into your Dell and reboot the computer. Note you may need to enter BIOS and enable boot to CD/DVD. Once at the Hiren menu, select Boot Mini XP. Once the Mini XP loads you can copy NTLDR loader from the mini xp to your C:\ drive. Then remove the disc and reboot the computer.

How To Repair NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM Not Found


If you get an error that NTLDR is not found during bootup,
If you have FAT32 partitions, it is much simpler than with NTFS.
Just boot with a Win98 floppy and copy the NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM files
from the i386 directory to the root of the C:\ drive.
For NTFS:
  1. Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.
  2. At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
  3. Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
    Typically this will be #1
  4. Enter in the administrator password when requested
  5. Enter in the following commands (X: is replaced by the actual drive letter that is assigned to the CD ROM drive.
    COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C\:
    COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
  6. Take out the CD ROM and type exit

My computer lost ( ntlpd is missing) plus said press ctrl alt del it's not coming up.


Sounds like you've got some corrupted files. If you have your Windows disc, try a reinstall/repair or try to drop back to a previous restore point.

If those don't work, you might try to reformat/re-install your software. (backup your data if you can beforehand as reformatting will wipe all data from the drive).

This can even be a hardware problem, like the HD controller bad, which caused the file problem in the first place. Or a virus can cause such issues, which would make reformatting/reinstalling a good idea as well.

Make sure you have a defragment task running every month, if not every week. You can schedule to run at night or during the day, whenever you're not at the computer. If you turn it off when you're not using it, just leave it on that one day (or night) that the defragment needs to run... or start it manually before you go to sleep and unless it's a large drive, it should be done when you get up.

Good Luck!

NTLDR is missing


NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found. This often occurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the drive configuration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has been corrupted or deleted

  • Check that there are no CDs or DVDs in the CD/DVD drives.
  • Check that no removable drives are plugged in to the USB ports.
  • Check the boot order in the BIOS Setup to ensure that the computer boots from the drive containing Windows before any other bootable devices

  • However, if your computer is using Windows XP and you have a Windows XP installation CD you may be able to boot from this and use the Recovery Console to fix NTLDR manually .

    How to fix operating system not found?


    HIi,

    You could have a corrupted boot.ini or ntldr, in that case the computer
    wont 'see' that you have an OS installed.
    Because you can't even boot into safemode, it'll be very hard to fix if anything is corrupt.

    A way to fix it would be to boot XP CD and try repair, although I'm not sure if it'll work.

    If that isn't sucessful, I'm afraid you'll have to reinstall Windows.

    TW: Is there any CD/DVD in the optical drive or floppy in the fdd during boot-up? If there is, remove them.
    Make sure you try to set HDD as the first boot device and see if that helps.

    Installation stops


    Jonags,

    NTLDR is the NT Loader basically the instructions the bios needs to start your Operating system.
    If it is not finding the NTLDR it could be due to a couple of things.

    First thing I'd do is to check that the install disc is a full install disc for the OS and not an Upgrade disc.

    If it IS a full OS disc then we need to enter the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> during boot up. Once in the BIOS there should be an option for "Boot order" we need to set it so that your optical drive (CD/DVD) is listed as the 1st entry in the boot order. press <F10> to save and exit. Put the CD/DVD in your drive and boot up your computer.

    this should get you started with your installation.
    If it does not, you likely have a faulty optical drive.
    Please post your results so we can further assist you.

    Thanks
    Dave
