Some time ago my Pavilion A706N kept restarting out of no where. I was able to do a recovery and it fixed the problem for a while. Since 2 days ago it kept doing constantly, I did another recovery it fixed the problem for a few hours and same problem. After several attempts not able to boot not even in safe mode, I tried the recover again. It went through the format process but got stuck saying I have a bios error. Now I am stuck. It gives me different errors. Help. If I just get a new hard drive will that help? Can I recover my hard drive eventhough I cannot boot my computer?

Microsoft has some good information on the repair procedure for the NTDLR IS MISSING error message. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318728 I recommend reading completely through the information before starting any repairs, if you decide to follow the instructions. You may want to then re-read to insure you are familiar with what Microsoft is advising you to do.
