My hp dv4000 will not boot up, I get to the Windows XP to load then I get a black screen. I'm getting a NTLDR is compressed when I try to run the recovery console. It says to press ctrl+alt+del but when I do this it just starts me over again to the previous page. I do not have any recovery discs. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out with this. HELP!!!

Hi :thumbsup:.

I don't believe that all HP systems include the XP Recovery Console...are you referring to an attempt to restore the system to defaults?

Would it be possiblle to enter "Safe Mode with Command Prompt", move to the appropriate directory CD C:\ or CD D:\ and then enter attrib -c ntldr? I don't have a recovery console installed to try this on, but it might be worth a shot before you go through the trouble of removing your drive. Just a thought.
