  1. When I turn on gthe machine I am getting the below message:
    NTLDR is missing
    Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.


    When I restart the machine will just display the same message again. Not sure what to do.
    Any help wis highly appreciated.

    The machine has windows xp system, I thought of reimaging the machine, but that does not seem to be an option becuase I have lost the CD that came with the machine.

    The boot hard drive has gone bad, and it will need to be replaced... You will have to get a Windows install disc, or have a repair shop do this repair for you
