Answers :

This means there is a damaged boot sector on your hard drive.\015\012\015\012If you have a WIn XP installation disc you will need it to repair the system, but you need to set the bios to boot first from CD Rom.\015\012\015\012When system boots press enter to start from disc, then when prompted press 'R' for repair.\015\012\015\012The easiest way, would be to remove hard drive, and set it as slave, then connect to a friends computer as the slave drive.\015\012\015\012Go to My computer and right click on your drive, down to properties and then click on tools tab, then click 'Check Now' on Errror checking to check the hardrive for damaged sectors.
