Question about Computers & Internet
On screen says ntdl file is missing
Did you replace the fan?
Is it XP:
If so do a repair on XP:
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.

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.
