I have four hard drives. When I plug one drive in, and boot up, I get the NTLDR is missing error message. What do I do to diagnose and fix the problem?

Looks like I have a bad hard drive. I tried the drive in an external drive bay and the drive was not detected. I tried the drive in yet another drive bay and this time the drive was detected. I will post back when I know more.

OK, the drive is 1.5 Gig. with data on the drive. I have used the drive for about a year. The drive felt very hot when it was running inside the internal drive bay inside the computer. I have run hard drive checks on the drive because I was getting an F$! warning message on the taskbar. I have run checkdisk and every other kind of check on the drive but nothing shows up. Does anyone have any way of checking whether the drive definitely is or is not faulty?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

You can go to the drive manufacturers website and download the manufacturers diagnostic software. For Seagate drives this would be Seatools, for western Digital it would be Data LifeGuard . Not sure for other manufacturers.
