boot mgr missing could be a number of issues including corrupt files and damaged hard drive and other components. from the other symptoms, that either the motherboard on your notebook has fried in multiple spots, or multiple items have fried or both. A repair could be costly, I think I would try to get a new notebook, and see if you can take the hard drive out of this one and recover the files from it.
