    Computer wont start

    When I turn on my XP, I get this blank screen that says "NTLDR Compressed, Press Cntrl+alt+del to restart computer"

    This always comes up whenever I turn on the computer.

    Any suggestions?

    Googled "NTLDR Compressed"

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply.. Too bad it didnt work =(

    I googled searched for it myself and found some people with the same problem. They all said they fixed there problem by reinstalling there operating system... I dont know if its possible to reinstall without starting up the computer -.-

    My computer came with XP installed and didnt come with the cd

    Thanks for the help.

    that surely sucks. Maybe you should try checking with the vendor to see if they can supply you with the recovery CD to allow you to reinstall the OS.

    Rofl-

    I reread my receipt and found that it had a 1 year warranty on it..

    But too bad I found this "destructive recovery" option before i read it -.-
    Sorry for posting before reading.

    I would give positive APs but i dont want to get ranted on for giving APs to people who didnt find solutions for me =\
    (Unless you can say something to change my mind)

    Thank you.
