Thanks to everyone who contributed to this topic. But the problem is not yet solved, may be l am not saying the right thing.
In the middle of formatting my laptop, a toshiba brand with xp home basic os the charger was removed from mains unknown to me and computer batteries power ran out in the middle of the format activity, l can't say at what stage of the formatting it was before the light out.
The situation with the laptop now is that when it is put on, it simply shows Toshiba with these options: press F2 to run setup and F12 to run multi boot options thereafter shows the error NTLDR is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart.
Thanks for your assistance.
