Question about Computers & Internet
WHEN IT GOES TO BOOT UP IT STOPS AND SAYS NTLDR IS MISSING?
This means you have two hard drives in your computer and the drive that is set to master does not contain an operating system. Take the case off the computer and remove both hard drives. There are four pins between the power plug and a wide grey belt that attaches to each hard drive. There should be a little white thing that connects to two of the eight pins. On your hard drive, there is a diagram of where to put the little white thing. Put the little white thing on the "Master with Slave present" setting on the hard drive with the operating system. Set the other hard drive to "slave". Re-attach both hard drives to the computer. Start it up! and it should work. If it dosn't work, check your boot sequence.

When you start your computer, you receive the error message "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart."Cause
The error message "NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found. This oftenoccurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the driveconfiguration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has beencorrupted or deleted.SolutionCheck the boot drives
First, check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one thatcontains Windows.
If this does not resolve the problem, you will have to repair the NT boot loader.Fix NTLDR

The main menu will appear.
The tool will repair the file and report "NTLDR and NTDETECT have been recovered successfully."
