Sounds like a corrupted install. NTLDR basically means it doesn't know how to boot from your hard drive.

if you don't have files that are important you can do a reinstall, or if you have files you want, you can plug the hard drive into another computer and copy those files to the good computer, or create a partition when you're installing and it'll save your files.

let me know if you need help with any of those steps.

Hope this helps.

clive, almost impossible unless you have an OS. You may contact Dell and see if you can obtain an recovery disk.
