Hi, Though BIOS may be the issue, I would recommend that you also check the capacitors (small can) around the CPU area. Experience has taught me that they cause a lot of reboot and BSODs. Normally the top of the capacitors should be clean flat surface with an X or a Y mark. No blistering, no bulge, no brown oily stuff, just a dull shine. If BIOS is corrupt, you may want to consider flashing it with an update from the manufacturer's website. The usual precaution applies, make sure you don't loose power when performing a bios flash, all devices removed except for the barebone, availability of a bootable medium such as an FDD and a bootable diskette with the flashing software and bios update, setting bios to default on first boot. Hope this be of some help and give you an idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional info. Good luck and kind regards.

Boot Problem


I hope your laptop still can boot up from the DVD drive, so you can make a bootable DVD media with the BIOS flash (using other computer) to replace the current corrupted BIOS.

its not really BIOS, corruption at all,
if the CMOS battery is above 2.9v then no corruptions happen.!
the ROM part will not corrupt but the ram part can , easy, Battery.
check this battery any time bios forgets things this battery is the
no forget feature (CMOS NVRAM battery backup)
Bios can boot to any dvd, or cd, if you plug it and and select it.
BIos can boot the HDD, or SSD, or USB stick. and more, F9 key?
never use reg booster, avoid it like the plague,
any reg modifying programs are nothing but trouble. !!!

My laptop won't start and says "NLTDR is missing" press control alt delete to restart... why is that?


Windows is corrupt...
Sol = Reload Windows XP

you will need an original WinXP disk....insert the disk in the CD drive and restart...let it boot from the CD (to make changes to boot sequence make changes in BIOS)
once it boots from CD then repair you OS or install a fresh copy of the OS

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive.

Hi there, I did a bit of research on this for you and this is what I found:
First off, there are numerous causes which could be giving you this message. Odds are it's because reformatting wasn't completed properly, which means something on your computer hasn't been set up properly.
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.

Computer will not boot after bios update


you updated the bios?

Its possible that your bios update failed and the bios is now corrupt.

try to rest the bios by th bios jumper, consult your manual or just remove the power and the battery for a hour and try again.

If the bios is corrupt it would need to be removed from the motherboard and reprogrammed.

Startup problem


This could be a corrupt bios or a low cmos battery, follow instructions. Take the right hand side panel off the pc. Look for a disc shaped 3V watch type battery and replace (Very cheap) Look on the motherboard and reset the bios at the 'JBAT1' terminal put jumper(little plastic cap) from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Restart pc and enter bios when prompted(or press F2 or DEL on startup) to set time and date, save settings and Exit bios. It should now boot ok.
