    T-Bone...I have tried to run the OS disk but it will not run. it is like the CD drive is not picking it up. I have ran the recovery but it says it cannot find the preload.tag. I tried to get it to go into safe mode but it will not do that either. Is there anyway to boot it from a USB drive? I have purchaed two fixies for it and burnt them to a disk but it will not read any of the disks.

Try repairing the OS with the installation disk. if this doesn't work, try formatting the hard-drive, but remember to connect the hard-drive to another computer and backup your important files. this is the simplest way to solve it, as trying to restore the system manually requires lots of command lines and a system boot disk.

I have an Acer Aspire 3630 and when I turn it on, it comes up with a message saying "NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart". Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this, I do not have any CDs etc


It has to do with your operating system. The NT loader file is missing that's why it won't boot. You can download NTLDR or the best way is to reformat you laptop.

Boot Acer 3100 Aspire. Shows NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart. Will just go to the same screen over and over.Will not boot at all. Do not have a boot disk.


Remove any 3.5" diskette from the A: drive.
Remove any CD from the CD/DVD drive.
Reboot.

If you still have the problem, then borrow a Windows XP disk.
Boot from it. Choose "repair", not "install".

If the disk-drive is "detected", then "repair" will attempt to fix any file-system errors.

If *NO* disk-drive is detected, your disk-drive has "died".

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.

NTLDR is missing


You need to reinstall your xp or use the restore cds /dvds that came with the laptop to repair the windows startup problem.

Files missing / corrupt.

Computer crashed and will not restore.


if u tried installing windows from a CD onto the HDD and it still says missing ntldr. seems like a Bad hard-drive.

you can restart by pressing control-alt-delete.

then, try booting from windows CD and repairing the windows installation. if it gives u file copy errors.then, it is a HDD failure. get a new HDD.
