Fourth: No other stuff work, anything you type, whatever. You can get into BIOS but no use.
Fifth: HDD is dead

Ok, this might be the problem, there might be other results, so I'm not 100% sure.
Same EXACT symptons. But the CD Drive does boot disc, such as my WINXP disc. BIOS does read the HDD and the CD Drive.

I had this same issue last weekend, i tried reinstalling windows, i tried the fixboot and i tried the fixmbr. I then went on to install linux and i could boot into the OS if i used the CD the whole time. I got fed up with it and bought a new hdd which i have windows installed on, and the hdd that had the NTLDR probelm still works to put media and such on. If nothing else works for you, you might want to think about doing that.

have you checked the S.M.A.R.T. of your hdd? if it gives no errors in post screen, a simple reinstall will do the trick i think.......

That means you can reinstall XP.

dude this is so easy to fix its not even funny.. just boot up your winxp cd goto command console.. browse the cd and COPY the NTLDR file over to the c: and bam there ya go.. i mean the error says it all MISSING or CORRUPT.. so replace.. to fix .. you might find a differnt error upon boot up but again you can handle these one at a time till you do fix the corrupt parts and are able to boot up again..

I have had this problem before. No your hard drive is not dead nor do you need to reinstall. It seems it is corrupted in some way. Nevertheless, I have a program that will help you out.

See attached - and DO NOT REP ME unless you want to. Such BS Bindusar

Be sure to read the READ ME file within, it gives special instructions.

Nothing on attached...
EDIT: NVM
EDIT 2: I think I'll just settle with Trippen Out's suggestion.
