Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
The files necessary to boot Windows are corrupt or there has been a change to the drive configuration. To repair this you will need the installation CD or a windows ERD (emergency recovery disc) disc. If you can access the drive from a bootable disc try to perform a system restore from a recent restore point. If you use the install CD you can try the "repair" option and at the prompt type "fixboot". If unsuccessful retry and type "fixMBR". If unsuccessful you can try a repair install. The final option is a complete reinstall.

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
