XP not opening c drive

By jam4him ·
I have looked at a system which will not boot after a full recovery's an HP XT963
PC,supposedly running winxp-home.

"nldr is compressed
press control-alt-del to restart" is the error message we're getting,however the system will notreboot after a control-alt-delete...

any takers?

XP not opening c drive

by AndyN In reply to XP not opening c drive


I had a similar problem. Turned out that a faullty install was the reason. Did you have any problems during the install ie, Unable to copy file, or similar. I have noticed that XP is very temprimental with CD Roms especially older ones,it seems to want to read faster than the CD Rom can.
Unless you have critical data on the PC I would suggest a fresh install.

Good Luck
