When you power up the computer press F8 key 5 to 6 times so you can see safe mode and other menu choose "Safe mode with command prompt" if your windows system files are working fine then you can enter in safe mode with command prompt. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

During boot up press F8 a few times. This will give you a safe mode menu to boot in to windows normal or with network or a command prompt.

Add/Remove Window components


Im not sure which file you are referring to but you could just a repair of the installation
this is fot the master boot record

if there are any other files , settings or programs during the repair process options for these should be available

Insert your Windows XP installation CD or recovery disc, and restart the computer.

Instead of attempting to boot Windows as it normally would, the computer will give you an option to boot from the CD.


Press a key when prompted, then wait for the setup program to load.

Press the "R" key on the "Welcome to Setup" screen.


This will cause the CD to launch the Recovery Console instead of attempting to install Windows XP on your computer.


If you have an administrator password on your copy of XP, then you will need to enter it in order to log in to the Recovery Console.


Choose the installation of Windows XP that you want to repair (generally the only option). Wait for the command prompt to appear, then enter "fixmbr." Press "y" when prompted to let the FixMBR utility overwrite the corrupted bootloader with a new copy.


Remove your XP disc or recovery disc, then type "exit" into the command prompt.

The exit command should cause the computer to reboot, allowing the computer to load the new bootloader file and then continue Windows XP startup as normal.


Hope this helps

Hi, at startup try pressing f8, this should give you a menu, select 'start windows with last good configuration', this should restore windows to the state before it started rebooting randomly. Failing that...try starting in 'safemode with command prompt' and then do a 'system restore'- press f8 again at start up and then follow the instructions below. this should restore your system to a previous state when the computer wasn't doing random things.

  1. Restart your computer, and then press and hold F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in safe mode with a Command prompt.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode with a Command prompt option.
  3. If you are prompted to select an operating system, use the arrow keys to select the appropriate operating system for your computer, and then press ENTER.
  4. Log on as an administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.
  5. At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.
  6. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to a functional state.
I hope that this helps you to sort out the problem. Toni

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.
