Hi everyone, I tried to reformat my Dell 630m notebook, but it won't allow me to get into the setup screen because when it saids "Press any key to continue.." then it saids "CDBOOT: NTLDR IS MISSING." As of now, I cannot boot up to the window screen and whenever I tried to, it just restart itself. Very recently, I have experienced that my cd rom is running very slow. I tried to install a game and it took me several hours. On the other hand, it took my friend's notebook about half an hour. Could it be that my cd rom is dying and I need a replacement for it? Also, I tried to put in a clean hard drive into my notebook and see if that was the case. However, it was not, and it still saids "CDBOOT: NTLDR IS MISSING" and it saids "Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart." I've ran out of ideas about how to fix this notebook. In fact, I called Dell and they said it would cost me $49 to fix this problem because my warranty was over. To avoid this fee can anyone please help me? By the way, the OS for this notebook is XP Home Service Pack 2. If I needed to buy a new cd rom for this noteboo, how do I change it? Thank you in advance.
