It sound like your hard drive has crashed. There is no easy solution to your problem. Here are a couple solutions. You need to run a "chkdsk". It will scan and fix file problems on your HD. To do this you can either download a boot disk like "Ultimate boot disk" or you can take the HD out of your laptop and attach it to another computer. Neither of these are easy, for the boot disk you need to have software that can burn a "iso image" to a cd and to attach the HD to another computer you have to have the proper adapter. I would be happy to walk you through either one of these, just let me know. The easist thing to do would be to contact Acer and get recovery cds then go buy a new hard drive. I would take the old one to the store, to be sure I got the right replacement HD.

NTLDR is the file the operating system needs to boot up. If you can get any Windows XP (if that's what it had), you could use it to replace the missing NTLDR file by booting off that CD and running the repair option. Using a Bart PE CD will let you get to your files and back them up 1st. Both of these CDs you'll have to get from one of your geek friends or pay a PC shop to do it.

As far as the recovery CD not working, sounds like the small partition used by the recovery system is missing. Can't fix that without blowing away the whole thing.

Are you saying it came with a recovery disk that you dont have anymore. If thats the case you may need to aquire this from acer. If you go to their web site you can usually find a way to order this disc for your machine.
Find someone who has an xp disc and use it to go to recovery console then restore MBR files. NTLDR is the error meaning your master boot record has been damaged.

I have an Acer Aspire 3630 and when I turn it on, it comes up with a message saying "NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart". Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this, I do not have any CDs etc


It has to do with your operating system. The NT loader file is missing that's why it won't boot. You can download NTLDR or the best way is to reformat you laptop.

I try rebooting and get an ntdlr missing ctrl alt del to restart error


You need to reinstall the os. you might learn that copying file will be an option but thats not a good option. after NTLDR, tehre are 7 other files you may need to copy. so simply and easiest way is to reisntall the os.

step 1. You can press <Alt+F10> or the Empowering Key to launch in a Windows environment, or press <Alt+F10> during boot up. For the Veriton desktop series, you can also press the hardware reset button at any time. For the Aspire or AcerPower desktop series, an Acer eRecovery Management icon can be found on the desktop screen.
If this fails.

step 2


Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling. Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.

Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.

Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.

Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.

Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.

Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.

Warning!

The prompts during the reinstall will occur 10 to 15 minutes after the wizard begins. Use the original product key or the Windows XP installation will not activate. You will need to call Microsoft if your product does not activate. The number is listed on the activation window. This process will cause data loss.

My laptop Acer 5102 gives me the message : NTLDR


I doubt the hard drive is at fault.
NTDLR is a file that Windows needs to "load".
Seems to me, you had an infection or made a configuration change on your computer that caused the NTDLR to get corrupted or deleted.
You need to REPAIR your Windows copy by using your Restore CD that comes with your laptop.
You don't mention what Windows version you're using.
Windows XP and Windows Vista use different ways to do this.

Avertec 3200 won't reboot, white screen says NTDLR is missing


Ooops, if ntldr is missing, it means your operating system is dead. You should reinstall windows from cd. Must get into Bios to select first boot device as Cd and then press f10 and yes. When you start your lap it says you what key press to get to Bios or boot menager.

Recovery cd for acer aspire 3000


The "NTLDR is missing" error can sometimes occur when the boot.ini file is corrupt or missing but in your case it sounds like the HardDrive is the problem.

Try the Following:
Start>Run>Type "Cmd" and enter>Type "dir c:" and enter>Type "chkdsk" and enter. Your computer might promote you to chkdsk later Press "Y" and restart you computer

The Acer Aspire series usually have a eRecovery manager than ables you to burn 2 recovery disk which you should have done when you first got the laptop. Since you haven't done that you'll have to buy new recovery CD/DVD
From:
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/asp/product.asp?product=1241&ph=search&keywords=Acer,Aspire,Recovery,CD&recor=1&SearchFor=any&PT_ID=100



OR you can try the following.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a restore point that goes back to before your NTLDR problem started.

Please Rate, Thanks.

Acer 4720Z lost vista os


Most likely the hard drive went out, do you hear a clicking noise or loud ticking coming from the laptop?

Does it give you any kind of message like " NTLDR missing."?

Let me know.
