    Hi, i have a bad problem with my laptop. everytime i start it up it says BOOTMGR is missing press cntrl+alt+del to restarn( yep it says restarn). when i try to put in the asus recovery dvd, it goes into the recovery process but stays at 0%. then a big red ERROR pops up and in the top left corner it shows RETRY: C [err: 0]

    Before all this happen the laptop started freezing alot and was getting really slow, and after awhile i couldn't access anything in my computer. Could the hard drive have failed?

    i have an ASUS 15.6" G51VX-RX05 2GHZ C2D 4GB VISTA

    Your symptoms point to your hard drive failing, backup up your files imminently.

    The easiest ways would be hook up a USB hard drive boot into the recovery enviroment from the Vista Setup DVD.

    Then use the xcopy command to copy the files from the suspected drive that is failing to your usb drive. After you files are backed up confirm the diagnosis by running your oem vendors hdd diag utility.

    Leads me to believe its more than the boot manager missing. The file is mostly corrupt due the hard drive failing and even fixing that file and booting the system would only be temporary if for some miracle that was the only system file corrupt and the system could boot.

    You really need to backup any important information if possible. Perform the hard drive test to determine the hard drive is failing and replace. No amount of software fixes will resolve a failing hard drive and system file corruption and slowness is one of the more troubling signs it is happening.
