Hi,
For some reason your boot files are missing.
ntldr ( NT loader ) is one of the main boot files that is missing.
possibly a boot sector virus.which corrupts the ntldr file.

Put the disc back in, and you can choose to either install the O/S, or you can repair the current O/S, go for the repair,

Should resolve the problem,

Then run a full system vius scan,

Should be good then

Regards
Richard.

Comunication software component are missing keeps


For most of my customers, this software is completely useless. If this is the case for you, I would recommend removing it from the list of startup items.

To do this:

1. on xp, click start, run, and type msconfig
on vista or windows 7, click start and type msconfig in the search box, clicking alow when the UAC window appears.
2. click on the startup tab
3. Locate the Dell communication program on the list (or all dell programs as I normally do) and uncheck the box
4. click Apply, then click done. The computer will prompt for restart.
5. After restarting on XP, a window will appear. Click the check box and click close.

Best of luck;

Dell Inspiron 531 gets me crazy..


hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

hope it helps.

Hard drive not seen in dell latitude d600 after upgrade to vista


Your hard drive may need reseating.
If it still gives error hard disk not found then you have a faulty hard drive.
You need a new hard drive and then install Windows Vista

Error -need to re-install the operating system


Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.

Windows xp missing file and won't start up


Here's what I would do, because after reading around on that error message, it seems like you can't repair the problem.

I would find myself one of these: http://www.casecooler.com/3drto2dr.html

Take out your laptop's HD, hook it up to that convertor, slave it to a desktop, pull all your data that you don't want to lose to the desktop, put the laptop's HD back into the laptop, reformat/reinstall windows back onto the laptop, pull the HD back out of the laptop, hook it back up to that convertor, slave it back to the desktop, put your data back onto the laptop's HD, then put it back in the laptop.

That will leave you with a clean install that works on the laptop and you won't lose any data.
