Bootmngr missing


You will need a operatingsystem disk or a repair disk to fix it. Insert it in the drive then bootfrom it. You want to get to a dos command prompt (black screen with whitelettering) and type the following commands. Press ENTER after eachcommand.
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

Reboot and see if the problem is solved. If not get back to the doscommand prompt and run the check disk utility.Torun the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating systemdisc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want toget to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type thefollowing command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Windows 7 professional 32 bit. boot mgr compressed


This problem stemmed from two possible problems:
1. You compressed your Windows folder to save space, not knowing that if you compress it, you lose your ability to boot. (more likely)

2. Hard disk error (almost impossible to come up with an error like that in this case)

You have three possible solutions,
1. Using a Linux live CD, you can boot into Linux, and modify your Windows installation, to uncompress boot mgr (actually, uncompress the entire Windows folder) (I recommend not doing this one, unless you know what you are doing!)

2. Using your Windows disc, you can boot from that disc, and select "repair your computer" (after the language options, and under the big "Install Now" select your operating system, and click next (if your OS isn't here, don't worry, just click next) select Startup Repair, and wait Note: Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs. If repairs are not successful, you'll see a summary of the problem and links to contact information for support. Your computer manufacturer might include additional assistance information.

3. Reinstall Windows

Please, if you don't have any programs like photoshop or financial program, run system restore.

Then, run anti virus program like kaspersky.

However, make sure you don't hear any noise from your Hard drive or laptop is cool for its best performance.

When powering it up it starts to boot I get a blue screen then it goes black where do I start ?


Try starting your mac from it's install disc.
1) First turn off your computer.
2) Then restart it, right when you push the power button to turn it on, press the option key down and hold it
3) pressing the option key will bring to a screen where you can choose your startup disk. Usually, you'll see your Macintosh HD available to startup from. Don't choose anything yet.
4) Insert your install disc into the CD slot.
5) wait a couple of seconds and then clock on your install disc as your startup option.
6) after clicking on the disc, go to the menubar and click on Utilities then disk utility.
7)once the disk utility app is open hit "verify disk permissions"
8) after you've "verified disk permission" hit "repair disk permissions"
- this might take a long time depending how much you've actually done this (which it's good to do every other month or so to keep your mac running smoothly). things might seem to freeze up as well, but it's the mac trying to verify and repair broken permissions on your computer. Don't that's normal.
9) after you have repaired the disk permission, reboot your mac by quitting disk utility and then choosing the startup disk as your normal macintosh HD. That should do the trick. If not, tell us what has changed.

ON SWITCH ON MESSAGE READS BOOTMNGR DISC ERROR


ok
May I know the windows you are using?
If vista or xp you can put the windows setup disk and select repair option.
If the repair does not work try fresh install the windows or else the disk is going bad.
