I recently just got a computer working and i was installing some soundcard software when it told me a problem had occured and it froze, I then proceeded to restart it. Then after i restarted it i recieved an error message saying NTLDR Missing. Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE to restart. I have no idea what that means. I looked at other posts and they didnt work. I looked on the Microsoft website and it said it was cause by installing XP over another windows. But that didnt make sense since i had rebooted many times before. It also said that it was caused by-"After you use the Windows Disk Management snap-in tool to mark your primary partition as active, the computer may not start". I have no idea what that means but im pretty sure i didnt do that. Well does anyone know how to fix it? Thank you in advanced.
I read that drinking was bad for you....so i quit reeding
A couple of things:
1. Sometimes a disk left in the floppy drive will give you that error. Especially when the floppy drive is 1st in the boot sequence.
2. There are worms/virus that infest the MBR that will give you the same problem.
3. NTLDR is NT Boot Loader.
