Question about Hitachi TravelStar 4K120 HTS421212H9AT00 120 GB Hard Drive
My laptop Acer Aspire 5102 gives me the message : NTLDR files are missing, press ctrl alt delete to continue, when pressing so, the same message comes over and over again, I was determine to replace the hard drive but the fact that the laptop shuts off after two minutes or so on its own. The power light comes back after another minute to give me the option of turning it on again only to find the same message on the black screen. My question is if a bad hard drive can shut the laptop or it is most likely that a different part is failing. The hard drive is a Hitachi HTS421212H9AT00
Thank you very much
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.
