NTLDR is missing

Hi
I have a black screen with NTLDR is missing. I did ctrl, alt, del, and then the acer came up and I pressed f2 it took me to the PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility. Well I have no idea what I am doing but when I changed a few things and pressed save and exit my screen went right back to NTLR is missing. and the only way I can get back to the setup part is by pressing ctrl, alt, del.

PLEASE HELP :(

    My laptop was doing a system restore and went off, now it is stuck on a screen that says NTLDR is missing and then shuts itself off. I tried putting in my back-up discs but i don't know how to get them to run. My modem was also messed up before and was not attached to anything, and my sound is currupt. Plz Help!

You need to reinstall your xp or use the restore cds /dvds that came with the laptop to repair the windows startup problem.

Files missing / corrupt.
