Question about Computers & Internet
Check the connection between the hard drive and the motherboard. When you get the NTLDR warning, it is telling you that the hard drive is not being read. There maybe a failure with the hard drive itself.

I believe you have Windows XP on your computer. If the NTDLR is missing, your computer wont boot anyhow you do it because it is the file that loads Windows on your desktop. what you need to do is prepare your operating system disk (Windows XP disk) and put it in your computer. make sure the disk is in your computer before you follow these steps.
1.restart the computer 2.keep pressing the F12 key once you see it powering up to launch the boot options menu. 3.select your CD/DVD/ODD drive (where the windows XP disk is in) from the list of options and keep tapping the enter key until you see a message that says "windows is loading files" 4. wait until you see other options that will be presented to you. you would be prompted to either install or repair windows. in this case we would select repair by pressing letter "R". (if you would be asked to agree to the end user license, please do) 5. you would have a black screen somehow similar to a command prompt with a blinking cursor. 6.for windows installation press "1" 7. you would be asked for an administrator password. enter the password that you have for windows if you have any, otherwise leave it blank and just press enter. 8.now we have to copy the NTDLR from the CD to your computer. type the following as it is: copy e:\i386\ntdlr c:\ (press enter) copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ (press enter) 8.you would be prompted if you have successfully copied the files. type in EXIT or QUIT to restart your computer. your computer should boot up fine now.
Hope this helps.
