MBR error

When I try to load my laptop up, the screen stays like it does in a command prompt, and it says "MBR Error" and then "No operating System found" when I've already installed Windows on it. Please help!

Tried Running FixMBR From The Recovery Console?

In reply to: MBR error

Boogle it..

That's assuming you have Windows XP ...which you haven't told us.

Hope this helps.

How To Run FixMBR

In reply to: Yes, I have XP

Apparently, you didn't try Google at all.. For example, here's the second link I found after typing "FixMBR" into Google. The instructions will tell you how to run FixMBR from the Recovery Console:

Please try those instructions.

Hope this helps.
