Hello,

On my laptop I have windows xp and suddenly this morning i receive a message as NTLDR Missing Please press Alt Cntl Del /

Nothing happens after that, I tried using my winxp bootable CD. I am unable to reach the repair section. It stops with error and blue screen. There is no way i can find to reach the command prompt to copy the ntldr files.

I have important projects on this laptop and wish to get the files please. Kindly help this is important to me.
