I know there is many threads with this problem but mine is kinda wierd. This is the story. The computer was working for a while until i tried to do a windows update. It made me restart then it looked like everything was in windows 98. I didn't like that so i tried doing a system restore and it came up with a message saying that something was preventing windows from accurately checking the lisence right after the welcome screen. This would not allow me to get into my desktop. So I put my hard drive in my brothers working computer as a slave and formatted it. There were no errors in the formatting process. So I put it back in my computer and I recieved the error message NTLDR is missing press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. I have tried everything. I made sure the jumpers were right. I tried formatting it again. I unplugged everything from the motherboard and plugged it back in. Took the processor out, took the ram out, unplugged the IDE cables and plugged everything back in. It won't boot from the Windows XP CD either.
