Hi ... The 'NTLDR missing' means that windows NT Loder file is missing so OS can't boot.

NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer

The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message 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.
Get more help and information for Windows XP hope this helps you.

Black screen with messege( ntldr is missing)


If ntldr is missing either the computer is trying to boot off the wrong device(usb drive, floppy, memory chip, etc) or the boot sector on your harddrive may be damaged.

Remove any and all removable disks, including cd's/dvd's, reboot the computer and try again. If you get the same message then your harddrive is either corrupted(software problem) or damaged(physical failure).

Let me know how this works out, don't forget to unplug things like printers or cameras that have memory card reader, even if there's no chip in them.

Hope this helps, let me know if it doesn't and I can provide you with the next steps.

If NTLDR is missing, you will need to do one of two things:

1) follow this link and follow instructions to create a NTLDR boot disc and get back up and running


2) boot to Windows CD and repair Windows installation

Ntldr missing

You need to do full system recovery to boot up your pc again. NTLDR is a hidden file that is needed to boot windows. Your laptop should come with a recovery disc to re install Windows.
Hope this helps.

NTLDR missing

I can get into the Boot First Screen but can't seem to change anything within it... These screens seems to be selectively responsive to my key presses.... I can get the bios screen up, boot order screen up but not necessarily do anything within them... e.g. I can't restart the pc using ctrl alt del when the missing NTLDR message appears.... also I have put an XP disc in and it says to press any key to BOOT from CD .... I Do so but obviously it doesn't recognise it so it gives me the missing NTLDR message again! :(
