NTLDR is missing error on startup can be caused by

1) Failing Hardware (likely the HDD but can be some other things as well)

2) System File Damage (either configuration or missing file)
possibly due to a virus or malware

You may be able to repair the problem within the XP recovery console, but things like this usually happen for a reason... Sometimes random things cause this but there is usually a reason.

going into the XP recovery console from your XP CD will allow you to check your files and make repairs.
Although copying NTLDR directly may work, running
FIXBOOT
CHKDSK /R
may repair more things too

If I were you, I would let a repair professional do a full hardware diagnostic on your machine to make sure your hard drive isn't on it's way out. Continuing to use damaged hardware may result in difficuilt/pricey data recovery.

I know Geek Squad can take care of this if you take a trip out there but go with who you feel comfortable with.

Any more questions, email marc.menzies@gmail.com

Hello,

For solving the problem do the following:

If the NTLDR is showing the problem is that the DLL flies of the OS is corrupted.  It may need to install the OS again and see that the system is not swithched off directly without shutdown.

Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!

I have an Acer Aspire 3630 and when I turn it on, it comes up with a message saying "NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart". Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this, I do not have any CDs etc


It has to do with your operating system. The NT loader file is missing that's why it won't boot. You can download NTLDR or the best way is to reformat you laptop.

When i switch my computer on, windows profession window appears and say press ctrl+alt_delete to begin, I do that but nothing happens. My laptop i'm using is a Dell Latitude D630


Step 1 - Remove non bootable media
Remove any floppy disks, CD's or USB sticks from your computer and restart.
If NTLDR is missing error appears again, Do the Next Step.

Ensure you boot the system from the CD. The system will then boot into the Windows XP Setup.
At the welcome screen press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console
At the recovery console, select your Windows XP installation and enter your Administrator password if requested
At the command prompt issue the following commands and press ENTER after each command:
fixboot
fixmbr
Remove your Windows XP CD and restart the computer
If the NTLDR is missing error appears again after reboot, Try the Next Step.
It is sometimes necessary to run or re-run the Windows XP Setup repair process
If it did not solve your issue re-insert your Windows XP CD and run Windows Setup again

Good Luck!!!!

When i try to start up my laptop, i get a black screen that says "NTLDR" is missing" and "press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" when I restart it, the same screen just reappears. I've also tried pressing F11 to...


The file can be copied from different computer using the same operating system and same version..It can only be done if you can hook up your hardisk from that computer and make it as slave...go to search file and search for the NTLDR file and its directory. copy the file and save it to the same directory of your hardisk slave. If file copying is successful, disconnect your hardisk from that computer and connect it to your laptop, then try to boot.

If that did not work, you can repair your missing file by running your windows installer. Make your cd rom as first booting device and run the setup of windows, when prompted, press F8.. follow some instructions. After searching previous windows system press R key to repair the system.. The set up will restart your unit once its complete.

i hope i help you with this...

much appreciated if you rate this solution..thnaks.

Ntldr is missing.... when i start my computer, it only shows NTLDR is missing press ctrl+Alt+Del to restart (this is on windows XP) please help... thanks


First check to see if you have a floppy disk in your floppy drive, if so remove it.
Second check if you have a CD disk in the CD/DVD drive, if so remove it.
If there are no disc in the drives, then the ntldr file is missing or corrupted and needs to be replaced. Please follow these instructions :-

Recovery cd for acer aspire 3000


The "NTLDR is missing" error can sometimes occur when the boot.ini file is corrupt or missing but in your case it sounds like the HardDrive is the problem.

Try the Following:
Start>Run>Type "Cmd" and enter>Type "dir c:" and enter>Type "chkdsk" and enter. Your computer might promote you to chkdsk later Press "Y" and restart you computer

The Acer Aspire series usually have a eRecovery manager than ables you to burn 2 recovery disk which you should have done when you first got the laptop. Since you haven't done that you'll have to buy new recovery CD/DVD
From:
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/asp/product.asp?product=1241&ph=search&keywords=Acer,Aspire,Recovery,CD&recor=1&SearchFor=any&PT_ID=100



OR you can try the following.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a restore point that goes back to before your NTLDR problem started.

Please Rate, Thanks.
