Is there something I can do without losing everything cause I had a lot of family pics on this PC. Also is the designated drive letter for the cdrom E on Compaq Presario SR1303WM Desktop PC ?

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.
Get more help and information for Windows XP hope this helps you.

NTLDR is missing this is the message i get then it says press any key to restart when u do nothing happens


Hi,
remove all the external devices plugged into your computer. and try to restart. if it does not work,
You need to have your Windows XP disk with you to resolve the problem. You just need to copy it directly from the Operating system CD. The NTLDR is responsible for loading Windows so if its is missing or damaged, there's no way you can load Windows back unless you copy it from the CD to your computer.
follow these steps:
1. insert the Windows XP disk in your computer
2.Restart your computer and press f12 to open up the boot menu
3. Select CD/DVDor ODD from the options and repeatedly tap the enter key until you see the "windows is loading files" message.
4. select the option to repair your computer (letter R)
(A command prompt will open)
5. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and press enter.
6. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. (leave it blank if you do not have a password)
7.type the following:
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\ (press enter)
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ (press enter)
(letter e corresponds to the drive letter of your CD/DVD drive, change it if you have a different letter assigned to that drive. for example: Your DVD drive is drive F, instead of typing "copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\",type "copy f:\i386\ntldr c:\")
8. after succesfully copying the files, type in exit or quit and reboot the computer and allow it to reboot normally.

Hope this helps

Access denied to documents and settings folder


The account that you are accessing; is it an Admin account, and now from the very account you are trying to access that account is a limited one, Is that so?

If that is the scenario, then there are ways through which you can get an admin access, but IF those files aren't there or are corrupted, then that is something else.

I'm waiting for your response...
Also get the properties of that account folder and tell me that folder size, to have an idea that is there something in it.


Regards, WAQAR.

I upgraded my motherboard, but now when it boot ups nothing happens. the monitor shows a boot menu (gigabyte), and flsh on and off, Is it the motherboard on the reset switch. I took it to Staples and they...


See if you have the operating system installation cd with you then try to repair the boot menu files howeva if that dont work out then install the operating system and that should resolve your problem.

How to Repair the Boot Sector:
If XP won't start it may be due to a damaged boot sector or a missing or corrupt ntldr or ntdetect.com files.
To replace damaged ntldr and ntdetect.com you can copy fresh files from the XP CD using the COPY command. Boot with the XP CD and enter the Recovery Console (as above). At the Command Prompt type the following (where "X" is your CD-Rom drive letter) allowing the files to overwrite the old files
COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C:
COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:

To repair a damaged Boot Sector at the command prompt type FIXBOOT and press Enter. Then answer "Y"

I was trying to restore my dv8225nr. My disk was


"That's the file that XP uses to start. Sometimes it just becomes corrupted and doesnt work or goes MIA. But if youre on an XP machine now. Go to system root (C:) and make sure youre viewing all files, file extentions and system files (Set these in Tools>Folder Options>View) and just copy thats machines NTLDR file to a floppy disk. You will see it at system root after system files are showing. And while youre on that machine you could also make a NTFS bootable floppy, or use a 98 boot disk as well. That way you can get to the command propt and dump the new NTLDR into YOUR C: drive. If youre confused by any of that please let me know, we all love to help :)"

Quoted from 0S1R1S on another site,
but is correct, may need to go into safe mode to load this into the computer. from operating pc to another. if you have a friend that also has the XP software you can copy it from thier pc. Hope it helps.

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.
