Acer travelmate 240 notebook - NTLDR missing message

Hi, I have recently bought a new laptop and decided to give my old Acer Travelmate 240 notebook to a friend. I happily deleted all my old files off my C drive and then deleted my administrator profile.

The next time I turned my computer on it came up with the NTLDR missing message.

I'm guessing that I must have made a booboo and deleted something important but I don't know how to fix it. I have my old recovery disks but nothing happens!

Please help!

If you had original xp cd, boot from cd then repair you system, otherwise use your recovery cd to give your friend a clear system.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

Have an acer travelmate 4060 would like to upgrade the hard disk to 160 gb Ihad buy a samsum hard disk but it looks like it is not compatible......any sugestions??


Acer TravelMate 4060

the new 160GB Samsung HM160HC or compatible works ok by default only without CD or DVD drive.

The solution is setting the CD drive in master (merge the contact 45 with 47) and the HDD must set slave.

All works OK. any Questions by e-mail: pn_dm@mail.ru

Acer aspire 5000 laptop. black screen says NTLDR missing, press any key to restart..but it will not do anything just stays on the black screen with the message


try repairing the OS with the installation disk. if this doesn't work, try formatting the hard-drive, but remember to connect the hard-drive to another computer and backup your important files. this is the simplest way to solve it, as trying to restore the system manually requires lots of command lines and a system boot disk.

My laptop Acer 5102 gives me the message : NTLDR


I doubt the hard drive is at fault.
NTDLR is a file that Windows needs to "load".
Seems to me, you had an infection or made a configuration change on your computer that caused the NTDLR to get corrupted or deleted.
You need to REPAIR your Windows copy by using your Restore CD that comes with your laptop.
You don't mention what Windows version you're using.
Windows XP and Windows Vista use different ways to do this.

Samsung 200gb hdd


When u bought a new hdd, it shud not have any partition on it. but in ur case, I assume u have formatted it to ntfs but no operating system is installed in it.

If u want to make the new hdd as slave and have another old hdd as primary, that have already an operating system installed in it, then the problem shud be hdd boot priority in bios. Enter ur bios and check for hdd boot priority and put the old hdd to the top most order, then restart. this shud fix the problem.

If u installed OS in ur new hdd (win xp),
1) ntldr or ntdetect.com is missing on root dir. (c:\). If u have another computer that works and have xp installed, just put this new hdd along with the current hdd and boot to windows. Copy ntldr and ntdetect.com to your new hdd. Or another way is just repair using windows xp boot cd.
2)the windows partition is not set 'active'. to set active, boot into winxp setup and press 'r'. this will lead to recovery console. type ur passwrod for admin (def=none). use diskpart command to set active. for easy way, put the new hdd to another computer. boot to windows. rightclick my computer, choose manage. on left pane select disk manager. rightclick on ur partition, then set active.

Hope this help
