Re: Computer recovery

If you are seeing NTLDR is missing, I say DejaVU!   Do you have the HP Restore cds for your PC? There are other options if you do not.

Here is a link to a solution for the same issue. You can try the Repair option first. If that does not work then a Complete restore will be required.

 

You can do this without taking it to a shop.

Re: Computer recovery

Certainly.

How do I mark a message as a solution?

If you've posted a question to a forum, you can choose the reply that best answers your question and mark it as an accepted solution.

To mark a message as a solution:

  • Click the Solution? icon on the reply.

If you change your mind about the quality of the answer, or if another reply provides an even better answer, you can revoke the first selection and accept the second reply.

To revoke an accepted solution:

  • Choose Options > Unmark as Accepted Solution.

 


 How do I give Kudos?

You can give Kudos to any posts in the community, except for your own.

To give Kudos to a message and its author:

  • Click the Kudos! badge on the message.

If you change your mind about the quality of the message, you can revoke your Kudos.

To revoke Kudos you've given:

  • Choose Options > Revoke My Kudos from this Message.


The Kudos count is updated and the Kudos badge shows that you can now give the message Kudos again.

 

The information above this sentence came from the "How to get started" post  in the forum.
