Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
Received a compaq laptop that was displaying the error message NTDLR missing, some bright spark tried to load windows xp on and deleted the partition now the error message reads NON SYSYTEM DISK OR DISK ERROR REPLACE AND STRIKE ANY KEY WHEN READY. Can this be fixed and please tell me how.
Yes this can be fixed however it will require reformatting the drive. If you have any vital information on your laptop take it to a professional as you will not be able to recover after you proceed.
Use any bootdisk (Ubuntu, XP, Disk commander) that you have at your disposal. Assuming you still your XP disc, change your BIOS to have the CD as the first boot device. If you have a proper XP disc (non-OEM) it should display a blue setup screen that will disappear after a few minutes. Then press R to enter Recovery Console, press 1 and then enter. Type fixmbr and press enter, then press y and enter again. Type exit and enter, the computer will reboot. Now follow through the install process.
