    @ stephenholla. You have a very common error with typically very common fixes. What was occuring (BIOS modifications, hardware/software changes, system recovery, etc.) prior to this problem? Do you have a floppy disk drive? So you have no recovery CD's ... do you know anyone you can borrow a Window XP installation disk from (with that you can perform couple possible fixes using its "Recovery Console".

I cannot start my laptop,its say no bootable cd in atapi cd-rom and ntldr is missing-acer travelmate cl51


Either the boot record is corrupted or the drive is bad. You will need to reinstall the OS with your OS cd or restore your system to factory setting.

When we switch on the laptop we getting ntldr missing press any key to restart


The error message "NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found.
This often occurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the drive configuration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has been corrupted or deleted
First, check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one that contains Windows.
  • Check that there are no CDs or DVDs in the CD/DVD drives.
  • Check that no removable drives are plugged in to the USB ports.
  • Check the boot order in the BIOS Setup to ensure that the computer boots from the drive containing Windows before any other bootable devices.
If this does not resolve the problem, you will have to repair the NT boot loader.
However, if your computer is using Windows XP and you have a Windows XP installation CD you may be able to boot from this and use the Recovery Console to fix NTLDR manually instead.

Ntldr is missing press clt alt del to restart


The NTLDR and Ntdetect.com files are important system files that are used by your computer to start the Windows XP operating system. These files can become damaged, corrupted or deleted for a number of reasons and are usually brought to your attention by the "NTLDR is Missing" error message. 

Follow these easy steps to restore the damaged/corrupted or missing NTLDR and Ntdetect.com files from the Windows XP CD using the Recovery Console. 

Time Required: Restoring the NTLDR and Ntdetect.com files from the Windows XP CD usually takes less than 15 minutes

Here's How:

Boot your system  using a Windows XP CD, press any key when the windows display "press any key to boot from CD"and wait for some time, select "r" option to go to recovery console. it will ask you for administrator password too.

When you reach the command prompt type the following two commands, pressing Enter after each one: 
copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

In the command listed above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\ represents the root folder of the partition that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different. 

If you're prompted to overwrite either of the two files, press Y. 

Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC. 

Assuming that missing or corrupt versions of the NTLDR and/or Ntdetect.com files were your only issues, Windows XP should now start normally.

That's it.

I have a 5 month old acer aspire one with xp and when computer comes on it shows NTLDR is missing, how do we fix this


you will need to run Recovery on it... NTLDR is needed to boot to windows.. if its missing, it won't boot to windows, and unless you have an external cdrom and can throw in a recovery disk or a cd of the same version of operating system and choose to repair.. then fixboot and run chkdsk /r...


To get to your recovery partition press ALT and F10 at boot up

Note: some aspire one's don't have a recovery partition.. and in this case .. windows will need to be reinstalled..

Black screen NTDLR Press any key to restart


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.

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.
