Hello, over the past month I've had difficulty with my copy of Windows XP Pro Corp. The problem occurs at startup after I input my password. Here are the problems:
- Task bar, desktop icons, start button, quick launch etc. do not appear and I am left with the mouse cursor and my desktop background. - Should I be able to log in with desktop icons, start button etc., I have no sound capability and no network accessibility. It should be noted that I install my audio and network drivers from the same nVidia drivers CD which came with my computer. - I can use Windows Repair from my XP setup installation, however when I do it is good for only 2-3 restarts before the problems reemerge. - After a repair/reinstallation, my computer will lose its internet connection and prompt for a restart. - I have ran scans of registry cleaners, anti-virus checks, adware scans etc. and that doesn't seem to fix anything. - I have replaced my old nVidia graphics card with a newer ASUS graphics card while this problem was starting. I don't what effect, if any, it could have with these problems.
At this point I am clueless as to the true nature of this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
You wrote that you just repaired the windows. I think that it's not enough and that solution is usually inefficient. A more "healty" solution: format the partition "C" and install windows again and after, the drivers. That is to eliminate the possibility that to be a software problem. Be carreful what programs you install after, because the problem can appear because of a software you installed. So install the programs systematically. Post back if the problem persists or is it solved.

You will need to run "startup repair" if you can borrow a copy of a XP DVD (any copy will do ) then you can also run the repair you will need to boot from the CDRom drive with the disk in, may have to set BIOS to boot from CDRom first, go past the language screen then select the "repair option" use startup repair. If you cannot get a download of the repair or a copy of XP then boot your computer and press F11 then select "advanced" hit the alt + D key at the same time this will give you a command prompt. Type the following two commands at the prompt pressing enter after each one. Reboot to take effect:- bootrec.exe /fixboot bootrec.exe /fixmbr
The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

One easy way to make a startup CD: In your c:\ drive, find and copy the folder named "i386" to a blank CD. That folder is in c:\windows You might wish to use a CD-RW so that you can overwrite in case you make a mistake. You'll also need to find and copy these three files: regedit.exe, expand.exe, and winnt32.exe. These are also in the c:\windows folder. Keep in mind that if you have to use the disk someday, you'll need your XP product code, and you'll have to go into the BIOS and set the computer to boot from CD/DVD. Hope this helps.
