Have you tried using f8 during bootup and starting in safe mode? If not, once inside windows in safe mode you can adjust video settings, ect. Also, you can use system restore and go back to a point when things worked.

How can i repair my CPU cause of problem TDLR missing? how can i repair my CPU?


NTLDR is missing in windows XP

The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft has a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility.

This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged:

Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini

Check your drives for floppy,USB storage devices,CDs and any other bootable media.Because sometmes these things makes problems.Then go to BIOS and do the BIOS settings to boot from the source where the OS is installed.

1: Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.

2: When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.

3: Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.

4: Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key(most of the cases it will be "1" only) and pressing enter.

5: You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.

6: From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:

COPY D:I386NTLDR C:
COPY D:I386NTDETECT.COM C:

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Boot error always


Hello sir, hi your boot error can be caused by the following:
  1. Your IDE hard disk is not the first boot, and wrong available boot on the bios. Check your BIOS setup for proper boot device.
  2. Your IDE hard disk has bad serctors, since its P4, I estimate your drive to be 8 years or more. You may need to format the hard drive again and reinstall your OS (windows XP).
  3. IF your HD cannot be formated, or no amount of windows installation can be done on the disk, its time to replace it.
  4. Your IDE cannot be detected by the motherboard. check your BIOS configuration for proper hard disk setup.
  5. Your IDE hard drive and your CD drive are both master or both slave, set the hard disk to master and the CD drive to slave. The settings can be seen on the case of the HD and CD drive.
  6. Your IDE ribbon cable is bad.
  7. Your 4 pin molex power cable to the HD is loose.
If I miss out something, please let me know. thanks.

hi,

Is the hard disk drive is in secondary slave? If yes, change it to master and your dvd is into slave. Refer to the jumper settings at the back on the drive. If not work, your bootable disk may defective. Try other a botable disk.

During the boot press the F12 key to select your boot option and choose your CD drive. Depending on your system it could be the F10 key, it should display the option during the post.

I doubt it is a virus as you have not indicated doing anything that a virus could have been transmitted to your system. The blue screen of death at boot up time simply means the files that find your operating system are not working properly. Specifically, if you want to Google them they are NTLDR (NT Boot Loader), Boot.ini (tells the system the name and location of your system) NTDETECT.COM (inventories your hardware) and HAL.DLL also monitors hardware. If you could get those three files on a disk-NTLDR, Boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM, then it would boot. They are located in the C:\ drive of any computer with windows but you have to release the hidden files button first...best thing to do is go to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at support.microsoft.com and research your error and those files..you're not the only one this has happened to so there may be a fix in the knowledge base. Besides its good practice to use the Knowledge Base as you can find out about any answer on windows there..good luck. Please rate this solutionl.

Computer wont let me install new operating system.


Anytime you get the Setup cannot copy the file xxxx, press x to retry, etc..it can be caused by any of several problems such as a dirty or damaged CD/DVD ROM, viruses or RAM. Make sure all of your hard ware is working. Also third-party applications can cause it (software that did not come with windows). Given the age of your computer (it came out over 10 years ago) I would guess some hardware is not found or not compatable with XP. If you can find a WIN2000 disk then you may have some luck. Also, the microsoft website has a Hard Ware Compatibility List program that checks your computer to see if it is compable with XP. Just search for it on their website....bottom line is technology has come a long way and older computers can no longer work on newer Windows, that's how Windows makes money, they shut off the software to a computer after a while..please rate this solution

Hard drives show up in BIOS but not in My computer? WHATS UP?


You should not use line select on any of the drives at this point. Set the jumpers on the components to one master and one slave on each channel. Personally I would put one HD and one optical drive on each channel and make the optical drives the slaves but that's not required. Win98 uses a different file system than XP (FAT32 compared to the newer NTFS) but you can still use the drive. I would copy all the files you want to save and then reformat it using NTFS for better performance.

Boot into XP, both HD should show up when the jumpers are set correctly. If they still do not show up go into your BIOS and double check that all master/slave designations match what you have set the jumpers to.

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

54d9788.jpg
Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!
Mike

Won't boot without a windows disk...


Just taking a guess here. Did you do a fresh install of winXP? This type of problem is usually caused because the boot.ini is out of order OR your BIOS settings are not correct. Get into windows however you have to. Once in windows you'll find the boot.ini on the root of C:\ Please copy this file to a floppy disk just in case you make a boo-boo.
You need to check this file. Double left click the file & it will open in notepade. There are five lines and they must read like below, do not make a single line turn into 6 lines.
It should look just like this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


The only differance between you & me might be the "name",
I use Windows XP Professional, yours might read Windows XP Home Edition.
Change what you need "only" and save the file. Double check. Than remove the CD from your PC and shut down. Wait a minute and start it up.
