Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I can not get my laptop to run for it says that the ntldr is missing and to restart computer
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
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.

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.
