Did you replace the fan?

Is it XP:
If so do a repair on XP:

XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

If Windows (XP or 2000) won't boot but gives a text message "NTLDR missing" - well,
NTLDR is one of 3 start-up files on C: which are necessary for loading the O/S
so you would need to get a copy from another (XP or 2000) computer (they are generic).
The file NTLDR is a hidden file, so you would need to un-hide (remove its Attribute "h")
on both the other computer (in order to make a copy of it) and then on your own.

If you are able to see the "NTLDR is missing" error on your screen, your motherboard works.
If your laptop was working before and suddenly shows this error, it could be that the file system is damaged.

You could check this help page with plenty of information how to fix NTLDR problems:

Why do I get a blue screen at loading? I took my gateway apart to clean it(because the fan was always kicking on high making for a LOT of noise). The main heat sync was loaded with dust. Immediately...

my freind never again use your household vacuum cleaner to clean anything with electronics it generates a supper amount of ESD electro static discharge this blows electronic boards you are going to have to invidually check the components in your PC in another pc and hope that no expensive bits are blown good luck

What could be the reason for over heating? give me some parts i should look at

Possible reasons of over heating include, low water, thermostat, no thermostat installed, radiator stopped up inside with gunk or outside with bugs, broken or missing radiator shroud, missing lower air dam, fan not running if electric or fan not running because of oil filled fan clutch, intake gasket or gaskets stopped up, blown head gasket, cracked head, cracked block. I put these in order of simple to hard and mostly low price to high price. Hope this helps.

MY fan only spins at the startup screen

If you are running with no fan, you will burn out the processor, stop and send that puppy in for service, please do no attempt to fix it at this point, you will be lucky if it has not burned out . I do this all day, and I take big risks but no cpu cooling is doa, leave it and send it back to the manufacturer, if it's off service or warantee, take it and get an estimate, then if you are going to toss it if it's not on warantee and it's too expensive to fix, then you can mess with fixing it
