NTLDR is missing

First make sure there are no Disks in any of the drives CD , Floppy and Usb Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32
New hard disk drive being added. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable
Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS.
Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CDROM First verify that no FLOPPY DISKS or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive including IDE,SATA
if ita flat 40 pin ribbon type it will be the first to fail.
The leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure dust free connections and are not faulty
Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections
Computers need power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
When NTLDR is missing from your operating system it means that there is a problem with your boot loader, a bootstrap process that begins when you turn on the computer.
A missing NTLDR means that your computer cannot boot to the operating system.
This issue is only a problem on computers running Windows XP or previous operating systems as Windows 7 and Vista don't utilize NTLDR.
Fixing the missing NTLDR is relatively easy so long as you have your installation disc.
Locate your Windows XP/2000 installation disc and place it in your CD/DVD ROM drive. If you don't have this disk, then you cannot proceed further.
Restart your computer.
When the computer restarts press any key on your keyboard when you are prompted, "Press any key to enter setup."
Most computers are configured to boot to another device other than a hard drive.
Since the Windows XP/2000 installation disk is bootable, you should see the prompt.
However, if you don't see the prompt you may need to change your boot priority in your BIOS. To do so, enter the system BIOS by following the onscreen instructions upon startup.
Then navigate to the Boot Priority menu and modify another device, such as a CD-ROM to boot prior to the hard drive.
Then reboot your computer.
After you have pressed any key, the Windows XP/2000 setup screen will appear.
After loading, press the "R" key to repair the Windows installation.
The screen will appear black.
The computer requests which installation you would like to log in. Generally speaking, press "1" and "Enter."
If you have more than one hard drive or more than one partition, the procedure may be different.
You must know which hard drive or partition your Windows operating system is installed in.
You are subsequently prompted for a password.
If you haven't set up one up, you can just leave the query blank and press "Enter."
The phrase "c:\WINDOWS>" and a blinking cursor subsequently appear.
Type "copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\windows" (without quotes), where "D" is the letter of your CD/DVD ROM drive (your optical drive may be different, especially if you have more than one).
Eject the CD from the drive and type "Exit" (without quotes) to restart your computer.
The NTLDR file will be copied from the installation disc to your hard drive.
If you've started your Windows XP computer and you see an error message to the effect that the "NTLDR" file is missing or corrupted, you've probably also noticed that the computer refuses to boot any further.
This is because the NTLDR file is an integral part of the boot process and needs to be restored before the boot process can proceed normally.Insert your Windows XP disc into your computer.
Restart the computer and press any key on your keyboard when the message prompting you to do so appears.
Press the "R" key to open the Recovery Console and then press "1" and "Enter" in order to select your operating system.
Type in your Administrator password (if needed) and press "Enter."
Type "copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\" and press "Enter" and then type "copy d:\i386\ c:\" and press "Enter."
Restart your computer and let it boot up normally.
Since the NTLDR is freshly restored, the computer boots up properly.

I tried to restore my sister laptop..but i got a message saying restore when i tried to restart the computer...i just got a black screen with the message NTLDR IS MISSING...Press ctrl+alt+Del...

Hi there, I did a bit of research on this for you and this is what I found:
First off, there are numerous causes which could be giving you this message. Odds are it's because reformatting wasn't completed properly, which means something on your computer hasn't been set up properly.
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32. New hard disk drive being added. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable. Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS.

NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart

The issue is your system is not loading off of the boot drive- check for usb keys, floppies, even sometimes cds can cause the issue. If that does not work, you'll need to get your copy of windows, boot to that disk, and run a chkdsk /r in the repair option. If that does not work, you will need to reinstall Windows.
