  1. I am newbie, so sorry if i posted my message on the wrong place...
    I NEED HELP!!!
    My probelm started with the "blue screen" (***STOP: 0x0000000A) which
    constantly appears on my screen! I visited WINDOWS XP help and it says
    follow the instructions on the blue screen... so, i did. According to
    the blue screen, i need to disable BIOS shadowing... I realize that i
    have a BIOS password which i forgot... so, i need to bypass the Bios
    password... I tried removing the battery from my motherboard and
    back again... I WORKED! The BIOS password was Gone! But to my surprise,
    the BIOS settings was reset!!! i dont know the correct settings!!!...
    I also get the message/error that says:
    Verifying DMI Pool Data...
    NTLDR is missing
    Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart
    Basically, these are my problems... I don't know the correct settings
    of the BIOS and The NTLDR missing....
    I can still access Windows XP by pressing F9 and boot to HDD before
    "NTLDR is missing" error appear.
    I thought reinstalling windowsXP can solve the problem, but it did not.
    I HOPE U can help me with this one....

    go back into the bios and look for a option to set the bios to default. then make sure you save and quit :) that should do it.

    boot order

    in your bios. You have to select what device you want to boot to.
    and what order you want your machine to boot in
    1.Hard drive
    2.cdrom
    3.floppy

    if you have more than one hdd it may be try'in to boot to the wrong one.
