Question about PC Laptops
When I try to restart my computer I continue to receive this error. I am working with windows XP pro. What can I do.
Just had this problem kept getting
"BOOTMGR is missing
Press ctl+alt+del to restart"
and it just cycles through to the same screen. Called tech support and this is how they solved the issue for me in less than 10 mins
turn computer off completely
Hold the "alt" and "Fn" down and power computer back on
While computer is powering on tap the "F10" key
(you need to hit the F10 key on the black screen with the cursor just before the BOOTMGR error appears)
You should get a screen that says "Windows programs Loading"
And then you have to run a restore to factory defaults (this means the computer will work fine once it finishes up the restore, but everything saved on the computer will be lost)
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the question.
bad MBR is your issue it sounds like to me.
Boot from the Windows XP CD and enter recovery mode.
this will recreate that file for you and hopefully straighten you back out.

Hola, intentemos con esto, pero lo que me extraña es que no te acepte la reinstalación. (by www.Joomlard.com)
1.- Arrancar el pc con el disco de Windows XP metido.
2.- Cuando nos salga el asistente de instalación de Windows Xp elegir la opción de Reparar Sistema.
(En caso de que no salga el asistente significa que el sistema no ha podido arrancar desde el CD. Prueba a ponerlo en otra unidad y volver a arrancar.
Si sigue igual, entra en la BIOS y comprueba que la primera unidad en la secuencia de arranque es alguna de tus unidades de CD/DVD.
3.- Teclear 1 de 1 C:windows
4.- Una vez que estemos en c:Windows teclear FIXMBR (y pulsar intro).
5.- El sistema nos advierte de que si queremos continuar y ponemos S y pulsamos en intro. Después debes de escribir el comando fixboot y lo mismo que el anterior.
6.- Tras el proceso teclear EXIT.
Sacamos el CD del XP, reiniciamos y arrancamos.

>> You boot from the Windows Setup disc.
>> Then press the first "R" prompt (after all the drivers load up)
>> Then press 1
>> Then press Enter
>> Then press enter (to enter past the Administrator password, which is likely blank)
>> Then type: chkdsk c: /r >>>>>>THATS ALL FOLKS! :) <<<<<<

There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.
The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables
Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source.
This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.
make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
if its a flat ribbon 40 pin IDE it will be the fist to fail
make sure all power and data leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs
data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS
hope this helps
