What is the fate of my computer??? Background... I have a HP pavilion 533w Windows xp that started shutting down on it's on only seconds after trying to start it. The only way I could get the computer to stay on longer than a few seconds was to press f8 or f10 f2 may have been used also. I checked bios and found hardware was being detected. I was unable to get anywhere with it and was advised to try a system restore (f10). While doing this, it got 25% complete then, poof, gone, it shut off. Now when I try turning it on I get:
-A black screen stating: NTLDR is Missing Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to Restart. I do and get the same thing...
-If I press f10 I get a screen that says:
Phonix Bios 4.0 Release 6.0
CPU= Intel ® Celeron CPU 2.00 GHZ
254 M Ram Passed
128K Cashe Sram Passed
Fixed disk 0
Maxtor 4606050 ATPI CD Rom Cobi
-Then the screen goes black and states: NTLDR Missing Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart......
I fear my computer is now in worse shape than it was before!!! What can I do??
