NTLDR compressed on a Compaq Presario SR105CL cant enter bios to set to boot


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS. Corrupt NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM file. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT.32 New hard disk drive being added. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable. Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS. Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD ROM First verify that no Floppy Diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette. b> Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer. If you are attempting to BOOT from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt. If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive. Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt. Press any key to boot from the CD

Computer do not detect the hard drive


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Need to reboot i can't even get to the start screen, it keeps telling me to put in a disc.. i don't have a disk drive


This error means that your hard drive isn't functioning correctly. The computer is attempting to load the operating system off your hard drive but the computer can't find the operating system. There are several causes for this problem:

1. The hard drive has crashed.
2. The boot sector and/or operating system has become corrupted.
3. The hard drive has become disconnected from the laptop; this is unlikely but possible.

To determine what has happened follow these instructions:
1. Turn off netbook and remove all usb devices.

2. Turn on netbook and press whatever key enters the boot menu; often it is ESC or F10 - look on the first screen you see when you turn on the computer.

3. Look at the possible devices listed that you can choose from. If the hard drive isn't listed, then your netbook isn't detecting the hard drive likely because it has crashed. At this point you're going to have to take the netbook to a repair shop.

4. If your hard drive is listed, then it's possible that the hard drive is fine but that the boot sector has become corrupted. If you have access to a USB CD-Drive and a Windows installation disk or have a way to create a bootable USB flash drive, then there are some solutions that can be attempted. If you don't have access to these things, then you will have to take the netbook to a repair shop.

If you do have access to a Windows installation disk or can create a bootable USB flash drive, then post back to this solution and I can help you further.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

How do I restore computer which is a compaq desk top


Most compaq PC's have a built in function to bring the PC back to it's factory state. This is stored on a small (hidden) partition on the hard disk and can be accessed by pressing F8 or F12 during bootup (before the windows splash screen). The menu option will be something along the lines of "repair your computer".
If you've changed hard drives, formatted, or deleted the partition, your only option will be to re-install windows using a windows disc.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

Error loading operating system


If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.
