Ntldr is missing, press ctrl,alt and del to restart
the ntldr.sys file is used to boot your winxp, this should have got corrupted, or your boot sector in the harddisk should have got corrupted.
what file system was used on your harddisk ( Fat32 or NTFS)
if it is Fat32 then you can try this. boot your system with win98 boot cd or floppy. after booting insert your windows xp cd in the cd drive copy the file ntldr.sys from the i386 folder to the os root dir(usually the c:) you will receive a overwrite message. do the over writing. thats all.
now restart your system normally (harddisk). it should be fine.
if the file system is NTFS, i am sorry to say, if you dont know the admin pass, you will have to repair the installation with the winxp cd,
for this boot your system with the winxp cd, on the first screen, press enter( for a fresh installation), then press F8, now you will be notified that there is already a window installation, on this screen press 'R' to repair the installation. follow the online screen.
Actually this is a nothing but just a reinstall of the OS. you may have to reinstall most of the os updates. and a few softwares also.
Hope this helps you.
