Could be as simple as a corrupted operating system, and as bad as a failing hard drive. As Trystam said, check BIOS settings for boot order and CD-ROM settings.

HOW DO I GET MY PC TO LOAD THE NEW OS WHEN I KEEP GETTING AN ERROR MESSAGE SAYING BOOTMGR IS MISSING?


If you are on a computer that you usually use, and you get this message, it means that the Operating System startup files are corrupted, or erased. If you want to upgrade your PC to a new operating system, you need

1. to get a DVD of the new operating system,
2. Put it in your DVD drive
3. Turn on your computer. When your computer is turning on, press the F?? key that is displayed on your monitor when it starts up that says "Boot menu"
4. When the boot menu appears, tell your computer to boot from the DVD. When it finds the DVD, it will start your computer with the new operating system. Some operating systems allow you to repair your desktop/laptop, if the DVD is the same operating system that is on your desktop/laptop.

Few computer problems are more frustrating than a laptop that refuses to boot, as troubleshooting becomes infinitely more difficult when you are unable to get into the operating system. By understanding the common causes of laptop booting problems, you may be able to spare yourself the cost of paying an electronics store by resolving the issue on your own.
Laptop computer
Error Messages
If a laptop is unable to boot, there will usually be an error message giving you some idea of the problem's cause. Read this error message to know where to begin in the troubleshooting process. Some common error messages seen on laptop computers during the booting process include "NTLDR" messages, which deal with the operating system, and messages relating to the hard drive and the power supply.

Identifying a Software Issue
If a laptop has trouble booting and displays error messages generated by Windows, the cause is often a failed driver installation or other change that rendered the computer unstable. This type of issue can often be resolved by starting Windows in safe mode, then using the System Restore utility to roll the computer back to the previous configuration. If an external peripheral was recently added to your laptop, such as an external DVD drive, try booting the laptop with the device disconnected, then reconnecting it once Windows is fully loaded.

Identifying a Hardware Issue
Random booting issues on a laptop--those that seem to come and go with no explanation--are often caused by a problem with the hardware. Other symptoms of a possible hardware issue include a system that does not get past the POST screen (the initial monochrome screen displayed when the unit is turned on), or an error message containing the word SMART (this refers to an internal health monitoring system used by hard drives).

Identifying a Heat Issue
For all electronics, heat can be a killer. Heat-related issues can be caused by using the laptop in an unsafe way (such as by putting the laptop on a surface that blocks the air intake port), or by dust building up inside the cooling system. An unacceptable level of noise emanating from the cooling can generally signify that the cooling system needs to be cleaned in order to prevent a more serious issue. If a laptop has a booting problem that only tends to arise after the machine has been in use for extended periods, heat is likely to be the cause.

Prevention/Solution
Do not neglect your laptop's power supply. Laptop power supplies are often quite fragile, and are susceptible to damage from heat (exacerbated by being trapped under a desk or chair) as well as damage to the shielding surrounding the cable. Problems caused by a faulty power supply are often not instantaneous; it can take time for a power-related issue to become evident. To avoid booting problems that may be caused by a power issue, replace your laptop's power supply at the first sign of physical damage.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you.

I wiped my hard drive using kill disk. I have a Windows XP home disc to install the operating system, but when I boot the computer, I get the "Error loading operating system" message and it won't...


when you boot the laptop, if you don't see a message that says press any key to boot from CD, your boot order is wrong.

Check your boot order, when you see the splash screen (logo) look for a message that says press a F1-F12 key to change boot order or if that message is not displayed, press the key to enter setup.

Look for an option that list boot order and shows your hard drive, CD/DVD and USB options.

Move the CD/DVD item to the top of the list and try again.

"error loading operating system"


Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.
