Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
When you see this you either have a bad hard drive, or if you are real lucky its loose, or the drive controller on the main board is gone (not at a all lucky).
The first thing to check is to listen for the drive spinning up. You need to put your ear on the bottom of the case over the drive and then power it up. What you are listening for is the sound of just the drive. It should sould like a turbo spooling up. If there are any clunks or bearing noises then your drive needs to be replaced. Figure on $80-$100 for a new drive. Go as big as you can afford as its worth it. Replacement takes longer to explain than to do. You take the cover off then one or two hold down screws. Then the drive in its carrier comes out. Take the drive out of the carrier, put the new one in and put it back together.You will have to format and partition but that is all it takes.
It is very uncommon for the drive connector get loose enough to cause problems. Basically you take the drive out and put it back in and that is all it takes to fix it.
If the hard drive is actually good then the only thing left is the drive controller. To fix that means replacing the main board which can be up to a few hundred dollars. And the laptop needs to come right apart so there is a bit of labour involved. The total can be more than a new replacement laptop. This is rather uncommon but it happens.
The hard drive is the usual suspect. It spins up and down and is subject to damage if the laptop gets bumped or dropped. I'd start there

Below is Microsofts solution to your error. Reload the OS with a Microsoft CD format it completely not the fast format option reload from sctratch. If you have no CDrom use an external.
Systems hard disk drive has FAT32 file system. Computer hard disk drive has INT-13 extensions with a system-ID type of 0C in the partition table The heads value in the FAT32 BIOS Pattern Block (BPB) is inaccurate.
To resolve the error message "NTLDR is Missing" follow the below steps: Boot the computer with a Windows 95 or Windows 98 Startup diskette or another bootable diskette with sys.com on it.
At the A:\> prompt type: sys c: <press enter> After pressing enter you should receive the prompt "System Transferred". Once the file system has been transferred reboot the computer without the diskette and attempt to reproduce the error.
