Yaa, Your OS has been currepted, you have to re-install it. There are two option to do this.
1. If the system is displaying the file name which has been missed or currepted, then you can repair it.. to do so
a. insert your setup CD and make boot and at first screen press 'r' it will display the drive name where your windows has been installes.
b. type the number which is appearing before your drive later and press enter key.
c. type your administrator passward and press enter agian.
d. now you have logged in to your windows setup folder.
e. using CD command goto the location of file which has been currepted and copy that file from your setup CD.
f. It may ask you for overwrite, if so, then choose 'y' for yes.
Now reboot your system it will be start..

In another way just reinstall your setup, i,e, press enter key instead of 'r'
and follow instructions given on the screen.

Thanks

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.
