NEED HELP TROUBLESHOOTING "NTLDR is missing" error message


You are looking in the right direction but your best option here is a restore to factory defult. Do you know the procedure for your particular laptop, if not then have a look at the Dell website. Do you have cd or dvd restore disks?
I often get laptops in with similar problems and first step is to take hard drive out and do backup of the docs then restore. I also have a WinXP live Hirens boot cd to boot up with and test everything.

press that key to enter BIOS scroll to PnP/PCI configurations the default is disabled
select enabled to reset configuration if you have installed a new add on and it has caused a serious conflict that the operating system can not boot
once you have your computer running again you might be able to attack this trojan

Optical drive not recognized in Bios


You have either a bad optical drive or optical port. You can still load the OS but you need to make a bootable USB drive and install that way. Or get and use an external USB optical.

also, check in your bios or for the drive settings, it may be set to only accept sata drives or the port may be disabled. some latitudes give the ability to disable or not look at a specific port.

My dvd plays cd but not dvds


Try using a good quality dvd cleaner first. If that does not fix the problem then it is an optics issue for the dvd & it would be cheaper to replace the drive than to try & have it fixed. Hope this helps.
