    What Windows are you using? Windows 98 or Windows 2000?

    The reason why I ask is because there are different steps that need to be taken with each one. Also, did you just flash your motherboard bios?

    Hope to hear from you,

    Have a nice day!

    was the message no NTLDR or LTDR .

    the NTLDR refers to your HDD failing and would only be resolved normally with a disk rescue utility such as Spinrite or a complete format and reinstall.

You are missing the operating system time to re-install the operating system. It is corrupt and will not start windows without the system files. So simply re-install the original software that came with your computer.

Windows dont start

It means that some files needed for windows to restart are missing,probably a system file or boot files. Some windows xp users usually re-install and repair their windows xp system using their original windows xp install disk and selecting the "repair" ooption. But another practical solution is to note down the missing file, then,on another PC using the same system,search for that file and copy, though you will have to note the folder location of that missing file from another PC. Boot your PC (the one that doesn't boot) with a system diskand on the command prompt (DOS prompt) copy the missing file from yourcopy disk to the same location where the missing file should be situated.

If the practical suggestion wouldn't work, then you have to re-install your windows on top of the current installation using your windows cd to repair yourwindows sytem, if this still doesn't then you have to install a new windows systemlocated in a different location in your disk, this way you still go to your saved files and backup your files.
