Default new pc problems

a little while ago i fifnished building my new pc. its not bad at all (considering i had to pay 4 it all by my self and im only 13 heh)
well anyways i finished it and installed windows and all and when i start it up it says: missing file NTLDR press any button to restart then i do and it doesnt restart instead it says: please insert system disk and press enter. i do that and re format my hd and reinstall windows. then when its done it says:starting windows and then it goes to a blue screen of death and it says some random crap and i restart my pc and it says ntldr missing AGAIN so i do this a few more times until i said screw it its not gonna work

Your mobo may not like your ram. Make sure the ram speed is fine. Ram doesnt work in any system, it has to be the right speed.

i just recently had the exact same problem, it was because i upgraded from a windows 2000 professional installation.

it can also happen if you use a copy of windows xp, for some reason sometimes when you copy them all the files dont get copied, are you using a copy? or did you upgrade from an older version of windows?

i just reinstalled windows xp from a legit disk and it worked fine.

then did an upgrade to xp pro from a copied disk, he he. if for some reason the things i mentioned dont work do a search on google and type in "ntdlr is missing", and a whole bunch of things will pop up to help you..

let us know how you make out.
