Question about Computers & Internet
First, check to see if you have a floppy disk in your floppy drive. if there is a nonbootable disk there, your system will give you this message.
It will also do this if the cables in your machine are loose (Some folks put their computer by their feet and can bump it loose on occassion) and the hard drive you normally boot to is not being recognised by the computer. Open it up and make sure all cables are connected to your hard drive and that they are all snug. Then try to boot up again.
To reinstall the Operating system, or recover one whose ntldr file is actually corrupt, you can use any Operating system disk of the same version as the one you have installed. Try borrowing one from a friend and run the Install during boot. be sure to look for the repair option that comes up fairly soon in the install process. A repair will replace the corrupted files and restore your system to good working order. If you find you are having trouble getting through this process, support.microsoft.com will have a walk-through for your to use. simply search for your operating system and use the words system restore, or OS repair

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 easiest way to fix the "NTLDR is missing" error is to use Spotmau PowerSuite.However, if your computer is using Windows XP and you have a Windows XP installation CD you may be able to boot from this anduse the Recovery Console to fix NTLDR manually instead.Use Spotmau PowerSuiteInsert the Spotmau PowerSuite CD and start the computer. The main menu will appear.
The tool will repair the file and report "NTLDR and NTDETECT have been recovered successfully."
