Normally this means there is a problem with either the memory or the board. You might have to do more isolation such as trying the memory on another computer etc.

Boot manager is missing HP pavilion dv6 notebook windows 7


This sounds like a common issue. The boot manager file "NTLDR" Can become corrupt or go missing due to a few situations.
1) Shut down improperly
2) Virus
3) Bad hard disk
4) Windows being windows.
Too fix this simply use a windows 7 cd and boot from it.
Choose the Repair option and let it do its thing. If i recall there's also a repair startup option you can use aswell.
Windows repair usually fixes the problem but if that doesnt work you can also put the hard disk into another computer and copy over replacement boot loader files.
""
  • ntldr, the main boot loader itself
  • NTDETECT.COM, required for booting an NT-based OS, detects basic hardware information needed for successful boot
  • ""
    Try that. The windows repair usually works but if you have to use the alternative and it doesnt work it could be your MBR. Windows repair also fixes this but theres an old command you can run from the dos shell of the cdrom "mbrfix or fixmbr" That will take care of it.
    Good Luck :)

    Hi ethandown,

    From my experience, you most likely have a corrupted hard drive which has affected your Windows Installation. Your only option may be to boot from a Windows XP cd.

    -When your computer starts, press F2, sometimes delete to enter the system options and change the boot-up priority device to cd/dvd 9(1st).

    - Restart the computer putting your windows xp setup cd inside. It will ask you to press a button to run from the cd.

    - follow instructions and when on the blue screen, use the repair windows installation.

    -if that doesnt work, you may have to reinstall windows however your old files will still be on the hard drive.


    Hope this helps,

    Hello!

    Yours problem can be system, or hardware.
    First try in bios disable integrated pheriperals, like modem, lan, sound, and try boot.
    If the trouble still here, try install new system with full format hard drive.
    If you still have a problem, you have some hardware problem,something like procesor heathing.

    Can I put my dell 2200 hard drive into my compaq nx6120?


    NO. The 2200 uses IDE and the NX uses SATA. Besides unless you're running Vista it wouldn't work anyways.

    Not able to open windows


    Sounds like a hard Drive problem. A virus actually. The Best thing to do if Safe Mode Failed is the Repair Your system, to do this insert your XP CD and wait until it says 'Press any key to boot CD' Press any key and follow instructions to repair windows. If it works, run a virus scan immediately. If Not, take it itno a computer technitian to look at it if you want the stuff on your Hard Drive, of if you feel you don't care too much just wipe the Hard Drive and Re-Install Windows XP. just do the same thing as repair but instead follow the instructions for Installing XP and choose either Clear or Erase Hard drive if you don't want the info or choose don't clrear or Erase if you really want stuff from your hard drive, But run a Virus scan Immediately asap.

    Hope This Helps

    Not opening my laptop


    Here's what you need to do to fix it: Find some way to get Partition Table Doctor (http://www.ptdd.com/download.htm) and put it on either a live boot CD or from a secondary hard drive installation. Once you have that, Scan the partition for errors and select fix boot... Then if you're running Vista get a copy of Vista Recovery Disc (http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window... burn yourself a copy of the disc, and run it at the boot of your computer. Once the cd is loaded, click on REPAIR WINDOWS, select COMMAND PROMPT, then use this command: bootrec.exe /fixboot

    If that doesn't work use: bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
    and see if your windows boots.

    IF you have windows XP, boot up with the Windows XP cd, select Repair (R), go into the command prompt (selecting which windows installation you want to modify) and then type this command: fixboot c:

    See if your computer boots now.... The important thing is to try to repair your boot which has been deleted or corrupted, that is why it gives the error: err2err3

    Try different recovery tools like Table Doctor http://www.ptdd.com/ in conjunction with your recovery cds (windows xp installation CD and Windows Vista Recovery Disc)

    Help with compaq armada 1700


    Sounds like your Hard Drive is gone, or you have a floppy disk in drive or cd in drive, could be a CMOS setting wrong also, but I would suspect the Hard drive is shot on a machine this old. P.S. I am running an Armada 1700 right now. Your HDD door should be on the bottom of the machine about 3"X3" with a 1"X3" lip that is hinged and has a catch on it, you need to release the catch and see if it even has a hard drive in the caddy, it will slide towards the front of the machine, slide it back towards the back it is only held in by the cover's foam and may have come dislodged. Some things to try.

    Compaq notebook won't boot up


    Hi

    When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

    If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

    OR

    You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

    Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

    I hope this helps
