Restored Emachine T3516 computer to factory settings and now the computer says the ntldr is compressed

This should solve your problem:

1. Start the Recovery Console. If you do not have the Recovery Console installed, start it from the Windows XP compact disc (CD). To do this, follow these steps:

a. Insert the Windows XP CD and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.

b. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R.

c. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the recovery console.

d. When prompted, type the Administrator password.

2. At the command prompt, type "cd \" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

3. Type "ren ntldr ntldr.old" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

4. Type "map" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

5. Note the drive letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD. It is displayed in a format similar to the following: D: \Device\CdRom0

6. Type "expand <drive>\i386\ntldr._" (without the quotation marks) (where <drive> is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD), and then press ENTER. For example:

Expand d:\i386\ntldr._ <ENTER>

Note the underscore character after the "."

The following message appears: ntldr, 1 file(s) expanded.

7. Type "exit" (without the quotation marks). The computer restarts.

8. Remove the Windows XP CD and start the computer normally.

IF that fails put in your Windows installation CD and reinstall the operating system

I am having problems getting some of the quotations like the question mark, number sign etc what is the secret.

The keyboard setting does not match the hardware keyboard you have. Various countries have keyboards where these marks are located on the same keys as others. In Control Panel there are the Regional settings (language etc.) for each language used you specify which keyboard setting you wish to use.

Apostropy and quotation mark keys change

The only time that I have this problem is when I've accidentally hit SHIFT and CTRL at the same time. Do it again and you should go back to your old way of typing characters.

What button makes an apostrophy

Look to the left side of the right side enter will see the apostrophy on the bottom and the quotation mark on the top. Apostrophy will come up without hitting the shift key and the quotation mark will come by hitting the shift key + the quotation key.

My keyboard keeps switching when i try to put quotation marks or question marks

Depending on the operating system, windows i presume then you need to set the correct input language for the keyboard. Text services and input language settings. Go to the control panel and select Region and Ianguage. From there you should be able to determine which particular input language corresponds with your keyboard. For more help send more info about your computer ok. Hope this helps.

Misworking Keys

In the control panel, you should be able to find Language settings. And while I have no idea what language you are describing, I'm guessing that your computer keyboard is set to a different language.

Good luck
