Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Answers :

You must find an installation CD for Windows XP (Borrow a CD) and use it to repair the boot manager of the computer.
When you get a CD
1. Configure the BIOS to boot from CD.
2. Boot from the CD.
3.When set up aska if you want to install or repair, answer Repair.
4. A black screen will appear asking you to choose the window installation to repair (you will most probably have only one installation present, so you enter 1)
5. You may be asked to enter administator password.
6. once you are logged type at the prompt FIXBOOT and hit Return.
7. When prompt comes back type FIXMBR and hit RETURN
7. When finished do a CTRL ALT DEL to reboot.

Hope it helps
