Question about Acer Aspire 5102WLMi Notebook
1. Check there are no other boot devices such as USB key, floppy or DVD inserted.
2. If you have a Windows XP CD, boot from it (press F12 at the startup screen and chose CD/DVD) and this will run Windows Setup. Once this finishes loading you can press 'R' to enter the recovery console. Once this loads type 'fixmbr' and it should attempt to fix the problem. Take out the Windows CD and reboot. This will fix it if its a simple problem but if its more complicated you'll need to get it looked at properly.

When you start your computer, you receive the error message "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart."Cause
The error message "NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found. This oftenoccurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the driveconfiguration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has beencorrupted or deleted.SolutionCheck the boot drives
First, check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one thatcontains Windows.
If this does not resolve the problem, you will have to repair the NT boot loader.Fix NTLDR

The main menu will appear.
The tool will repair the file and report "NTLDR and NTDETECT have been recovered successfully."
