Not necessary.... check the bios and see if the bios can see thehard drive make sure that the computer knows to boot off of the hard drives and listen to the computer to see if the drives spin up

SOURCE: non system disk or disk error

Provided that the hard drive is good, you should be able to boot with a windows xp cd, delete all partitions, reformat the partition and install windows on it. However if your hard drive is bad (which could be why you received the ntldr message to begin with) then you would need to replace it. But it wouldn't hurt to attempt reinstalling windows xp the way I described first.

Non system disk or disk error


This error can be a couple of things. If the "boot block" on the disk has become faulty, the system won't recognize that the disk has an operating system on it and will generate this error message. If the disk is defective completely, the same error will occur. If you have a boot floppy or CD, try re-writing the boot block on the disk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the disk is defective and will need to be replaced.

Non system disk error


Well i can say that your nephew is correct.
I should open it up and just look for lose cables.
Usally the screws are easy enough to spot.
make sure that you are grounded when you open it up, for example touch a element before you start working, dont touch your hair etc.

Hopefully its just a cables or else the hardware has gone broken.
