I have two problems that i need help to fix.

1. When booting up I receive the message -

NTLDR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.
When I do that it comes up with the same results.

2. When opening Windows XP I receive the following messages -

(a) The procedure entry point apsGetInterfaceCount could not be located
in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll
(b) The procedure entry point apsInialize could not be located in the
dynamic link library wlanapi.dll

Any help would be greatly appreciated

1st prob. Make sure the hard drive is the bootdisk in the BIOS. If you're using a floppy disk / remove the floppy

2nd prob. Update your wireless adapter drivers (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950720)

NTLDR is missing - sometimes the following works, ( this is for XP) you will need your Windows CD --

* Insert the Windows CD and start the computer.

* When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R.

* Type a number corresponding to the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1) and press Enter.

* When prompted, type the administrator password and press Enter. ( if no password, simply press enter)

* From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:


* Remove the Windows XP CD from the drive and restart the computer.

Failing that - 99% of the time a repair install Will fix it. Instructions (http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/How-to-repair-Windows-XP-t138.html) with pictures.

You can also run system Restore from Command prompt, back a day or so, sometimes that fixes it as well, but it does require a few DOS commands.
