Windows Xp wont load?

  spiders 15:01 10 Jan 2007

Hi, The problem is that windows Xp wont load.There has been no system crash and windows was shut down normally. Upon startup, the system boots to a black screen with the error msg "NTLDR is missing". I'm sure Iv'e had somethin similar in the past and it was not seeing the keyboard, once the connection was checked all was fine. It also says press ctrl>Alt>dlte to restart and this it does but only back to the black creen and error msg. Two new keyboards have been tried, both usb and ps2. So this is obviously NOT the problem this time.. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance Phil

It's not seeing a file that it needs to boot into Windows, it shouldn't be anything to do with a keyboard. I would try booting from your XP disc and going into the repair console to repair Windows.
