Bootmgr missing toshiba


Which operating system >?
What type of computer Desktop or Laptop >?
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
Restart your computer and enter BIOS mode.
On most computers this is done by pressing the Delete ot F2 key but will vary depending on your computers bios other keys Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc , ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc) , Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc).

Scroll over to the "Hard Drives" tab, and make sure your computer has the hard drive assigned to be on.
Often during BIOS you can select auto-detect or change options with your hard drive to make sure Windows can recognize it.
Once you've selected your desired options, continue to boot.
or
The solutions might be very simply... remove your hard-disk and attached to other PC or laptop as an external hard-disk.
When it is detected, go to my computer, right-click, untick that (stupid) option, immediately you see the message uncompressing and its done.
Put your hard-disk back in to your machine its ready..
w7
insert your OS CD
go to DOS window and type in your OS driver (usualy C:/
type in bootrec /FixMbr
then type in bootrec /fixboot

then type in bootrec /rebuildbcd
then type in exit

restart your computer
it will work 100% only if you prompt at the same order

Hope this helps.
BOOTMGR Is Compressed

The Windows operating system allows you to compress the files on your drive to conserve disk space.
In some situations, this compression process will compress files required for the operating system to boot.
Files that are compressed must be decompressed prior to execution.
Since the operating system has not loaded, boot files cannot yet be decompressed.
In this case, the operating system will fail to load and a "BootMgr is compressed" message will appear.
An easy way around this problem is to boot from the Windows DVD, and use the provided interface to access your drive properties and decompress it.
Turn on the computer, and insert your Windows DVD.
Press a random key on your keyboard once you see the "Press any key..." message.
This interrupts booting from the hard drive and forces a boot from the Windows DVD.
Click the "Next" button at the bottom of the Windows 7 dialog, and then click the "Repair your Computer" link Below.

File Compression and Decompression
Select the "Load Drivers" button at the bottom of the "System Recovery Options" dialog, and click the "OK" button on the "Add Drivers" dialog.
This opens a file browser on your screen.
Click the "Computer" icon, which is located on the left hand side of the screen.
This displays an icon for your disk drive.
Right-click your hard drive, and click "Properties.
" This opens a Local Disk Properties dialog.
Click to deselect the "Compress this drive..." option at the bottom, and then click the "Apply" button.
Select the "X" icon to close the file browser window.
This takes you back to the Install Windows dialog.
Press the "X" icon at the corner of the Install Windows dialog.
This opens a cancellation dialog. Select the "Yes" button on this dialog to restart your computer.
Fix Bootmgr Is Missing in Windows XP

Delete all quarantined and infected files when the scan is complete.
Insert your Windows XP Install CD into your computer's CD/DVD-ROM drive.
Restart your computer.

Press the "R" button on your keyboard when the screen says "Welcome to Setup."
Type in the admin password when prompted.
Press "1" and then "Enter" to open the command prompt.
Type "fixboot" into the command prompt.
Press "Y" when a pop-up box appears, asking you for confirmation.
Restart your computer and you should be taken to your desktop.

Problem with windows xp


Sometimes it happens in windows XP that you are not able to open drives on your hard disk. When you double click on the drives icons or right click on the drive>>explore in My computer ,the drive does not open.

This problem is generally caused by most of the viruses which infect windows XP system. They block or restrict your access to any of the drives.

But don’t worry this is not a big trouble it can be fixed easily.

Fix:

Normally when a virus infects a windows system which causes a drive opening problem, it automatically creates a file named autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive.

This autorun.inf file is a read only ,hidden and a system file and the folder option is also disabled by the virus. This is deliberately done by the virus in order to protect itself. autorun.inf initiates all the activities that the virus performs when you try to open any drive.



Very simple . virus create some bad registry if you want to solve this problem then delet this registry


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion­\Explorer\MountPoints2


delete all drive from here

Microsoft doesn't seem to have any information on XP having this error. But here's the general consensus after a little investigation:

1. Boot into safe mode by pressing the F8 key repetitively right after you turn on your PC until you see the safe mode screen.
2. Click Start >> Run. A Run window will appear.
3. Type "services.msc" in the Open field and then click OK. A "Services" window will open.
4. Find "Indexing Service" and double click on it. A "Indexing Service Properties" window will open.
5. Find the "Startup type" dropdown menu and select "Disabled", click "OK", and close the "Services" window.
6. Double click "My Computer" on your desktop. If it isn't there, then go to Start >> My Computer.
7. Find your hard drive, usually labeled "Local Disk (C:)", right-click on it and select "Properties". A dialog box will open.
8. Select the "Tools" tab.
9. In the upper third of the dialog box you'll see an area zoned "Error-checking". Click the button "Check Now". A new dialog box will open.
10. Check off the boxes "Automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors", then click "Start". You may be prompted to restart the computer. If this is the case, go ahead and restart.

Windows will check the hard drive for errors and run a surface scan. This may take a while depending on how big your hard drive is. Once it is finished, you'll arrive at your normal login screen. If Windows went ahead and ran the scan in safe mode without requiring a reboot then, once it is finished, go ahead and reboot the computer. Once at the login screen, go ahead and login. You shouldn't have the error any longer. If you do, be sure to report back here with details. The less details you provide, the less I can help.

Couldn't open the hard Drive folders....


hi sir,

i think you have an autorun.inf file residing at your local drives. this probably infected by a virus.

go to control panel >folder option> click View> choose "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files, this will show hidden autorun.inf file. In your explorer, right click your local disk and click explore, this will show all your files and folders of your drive, navigate autorun.inf file, if found delete it.
note: it has an associated file called vbsscript file...if found also delete it..do the same with the other drives. empty recycle bin and restart.

Cannot open my D drive by double clicking but it shows the option open with note pad help


You drive has been infected by a virus. but I think you can still open it by not double click rather to right click on the D drive and choose explore from the menu.
But this not the solution save the files somewhere and work out on removing the virus.
