Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"

Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

My machine has this problem. every time i switch it on it says mac address are invalid in both cmos and flash. what do i do?

configured the BIOS settings yet? Make sure your set the RAM to run as Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB
the RAM you installed and to match the CPU bus. And there's probably several other settings that need to be tweaked as well. For example, if you're not running RAID, disable it.
If the problems continue, you may wanna try updating the BIOS. Actually, I just had a look at the ASRock site & here's what the latest BIOS fixes: "Modify MAC address function algorithm"

I have bios version 1008 on the computer. Should i update the bios version to the newest one? The fans are always running, they never shut down

Actually if your MOBO are working fine as of now no need to update the BIOS version. Updating BIOS version may affect some parts of MOBO so no need to update the BIOS version.

Ibm think senter drives -mt-m 8434-52a

Up until now the only think we know is that the mother board is made by IBM. We need to know what is the name of the computer and model number. We also need the MB information and number. The number of the MB is usually printed between the PCI sockets (white) or around the RAM memory sockets at the right hand upper board. We will also need all the detail of the problem, with your own language. This way we can put together a duplication of your problem, which will lead to the solution of your problem.
Thank you very much for your consideration to our service...

I had the same problem, the bios is corrupted, try a blind bios update or if it doesn't want to, you must do a hot flash update.For more details google search for award bios hot flash.Or dump it and buy a new one.A hot flash worked for me for this mb and an Epox 8rda+,i also have backup bios chips now.Your chip is a Winbond,4 mb capacity.
Hope this helps, SSVik

Download bios and flash

Try Asus update first, found here:

It should check your current BIOS and download the newest one and install it automatically. If that doesn't work for you then you will need to update the BIOS from a bootable floppy disk using the two files found below:
