If you are able to see the "NTLDR is missing" error on your screen, your motherboard works.
If your laptop was working before and suddenly shows this error, it could be that the file system is damaged.

You could check this help page with plenty of information how to fix NTLDR problems:

NTDL ERROR


You did not leave any hints on what was done leading up to this.

Could be that you have something plugged into a usb or cd rom slot and it is trying to boot to it.

Could be you put a drive in that was not fully erased.

Could be your boot file is messed up...if that is the case, put windows disk in and see if it can do a repair.

My desktop is getting stuck so many times. It shows bluescreen and physical memory dump even when i tried to install new copy of windows. the error is technical error stop : 0X0000007A(0XCO7B9FB8,...


It can be a few things but usually the atapi.sys file is corrupt. If you can boot into your desktop, open the "run" box and type in "cmd". In that box type: sfc /scannow and press enter. There is a space between sfc and /scannow. You will be asked to put your Windows CD in the CD drive.
When did this problem begin? Have you installed a new harddrive recently? Have you installed new memory recently? Remove and re-insert the hardrive cables. Remove and re-insert the memory. Be careful about electro-static discharge. Sometimes just doing that will fix a bad connection.
Sometimes this error is caused by bad memory. You can download Memtest86 here: http://www.memtest.org/ Grab the prebuilt ISO.zip After downloading the file right click it and select "extract all" Use Img Burn http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write the ISO to a CD. Keep the CD in the drive and reboot.
Also, there could be a problem with the hardrive. if you know the harddrive manufacturer you can usually go to their website and download their hardrive diagnostic software.
Sometimes erasing the hardrive (absolute last resort) will solve these kind of errors. Just be aware that you will lose ALL of your data and it mat not solve the problem. Darik's Boot and Nuke works good for that: http://www.dban.org/

Is your hard drive being properly recognized/ identified in your Bios you may have to check in there
as far as partitioning goes you should be able to do that when you reinstall the Operating system in the advanced mode depending on what operating system of course.

Getting a bios error msg....CMOS checksum


No problem, once and awhile I just cruise around on here. You can narrow the problems down by either replacing the ram/hardrive/expansion cards/cpu with known working parts, or putting the parts into another working cpu untill it stops working. My guess would first be to try removing the hard drive. Once you get a working combination, add the parts in untill you find a the issue component. If the problem persists, your looking at a bad harddrive controller or hard drive, that undermines your entire system's stability. If I am right your working with a socket A motherboard and thats pretty old so I wouldnt be suprised if it may be quitting.

I'm sorry to say if you have already tried to get one off of the manufacturers website then you will not be able to get one that fits into the caddy. It's a propriatary USB-SATA/IDE addapter. Do what I did and take it out of the caddy and install it in the PC.

Getting ERROR FOR OPERATING SYSTEM


This is because you have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS or setup of the motherboard. When you first turn on the computer you can see something like press DEL to enter Setup or F12 or F10 or F2 depending onyour motherboard. once you get into setup you will see either boot sequence or boot order. Set the CDROM as the first boot device. Then when you startup the computer again you will see PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. proceed with pressing anything on the keyboard.

Hi There,

1) Unplug the ide cable from the motherboard, and try booting, It should through an error.. which is good.
2) If it troughs an error than re-plug the ide cable back in and make sure hard drive is plugged in tight.
3) boot up he system and go to the bois
4) In the bois select auto detect drive (if you have that option) if selected than save the bois
5) if the driv has been found then you system should boot up correctly assuming that you have an operationg system installed.

Please let me know how you get on.
