NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

Can't start Windows, Blue Screen gets in the way.


can you press the function key that takes Windows to diagnostic mode - usually F8. You have to press this key very quickly after you power on.

This might help you understand where it is failing.
Hopefully you have a recovery CD with which to boot and test the hard drive for corruption.
You will need to setup the BIOS bootup sequence to go to CD first.

The notebook tries to boot upon power up but simply shows the Windows XP screen scrolling by and does nothing else . .


The windows on your computer is cleary corrupt and no longer able to start up.

one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore discs or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation


insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

let me know if you have any questions or if you need anything else.
Thanks,
Ekse

Windows shut down unexpectedly, and when I rebooted, I had lost all my icons, and start tool bar. How to get them back?


  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. To Repair Install, press ENTER
    note.gifTo Repair Install, press ENTER
    \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" width="15" border="0" height="21" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.take care god bless

Computer keeps rebooting every 30 seconds. Whats Wrong?


Your computer could be infected. Press F8 a couple of times when you first turn on your computer when you see the HP logo. You will get whats called an advanced startup menu. Choose Last Known Good Configuration. If windows loads successfully, scan your computer with Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware programs to remove infections. If windows does not load, do the above again but this time choose Disable Automatic Restart. By choosing Disable Automatic Restart the system will give you a blue screen. Write down that information from the blue screen and post it back on here.

My windows xp keep rebooting after shutdown


You should be able to change this setting in the PC bios menu. Windows XP should interact with this and change it automatically, but it occasionally doesn't. If you have trouble finding the appropriate menu and changing it, please post back with details of your PC (ideally motherboard make and model) and we can hopefully talk you through it. When the computer starts up, there should be a screen before the windows XP screen which says something like "press f8 to enter BIOS setup", but all machines are a little different. If you can get into the BIOS setup, only change things which you are sure you know what they will do, or you can cause all sorts of problems. Hope this helps, post back with system details if you need more :)
