Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
When i turn on my computer it gets to the dell logo (with the bar filling up at the bottom). After that it show a black screen with the error message that says "NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". When i Press Ctrl+Alt+Del the cycle repeats itself and i cant get to my windows. I checked the Dell website and saw a step by step solution but i could not proceed because i forgot my administrator password.

That fault means NT (the OS like XP or vista etc) loader. The load up files are complicated and big and easily corrupted.. If you have an OS disc put it in the drive then turn your machine on. Hopefully you will get a message saying 'hit any key to boot off the disc"
do that. You will have an option to install. Select that. In the next screen there will be an option to repair the OS. That's it
As it's a dell you may have supplied discs for doing the setup. Booting off one of them will give you the repair option.
If you need more help show what disc(s) you have and what the OS is.
