    I have a Sony vaio pcg-k37, and windows will not boot. As soon as I turn the computer on it goes straight to a black screen and it says NTLDR is missing, ctrl alt del to restart. and when I do it goes right back to that black screen. Does anyone have any ideas, besides taking it to a repair shop?

    UPDATE: I don't have any cds for this laptop.

    I'm wondering about your statement 'goes straight to a black screen'. No POST? Is it possible that it no longer recognizes your hard drive? (Possibly drive has failed, possibly cables came loose, possibly BIOS got changed)

    If not, try booting from your Windows CD & copy NTLDR back to the hard drive (probably root of C: drive).
