I was moving around some furniture & had to unplug my computer. It was working fine before.. After arranging everything I plugged my computer back up & it wouldn't power on. Here's the strange thing. I moved my computer to my room to see what's going on & it powers on, though it says NTLDR is missing. I've made no changes between unpluging that time to move things around & taking it back to my room. I remove the hard drives from my computer, to try to kick it up on another XP computer, a compac presario I had for years my sis was holding on to, & with the hard drives installed, wouldn't boot past the compac logo. So i put my hard drives back into my XP computer & now it says "Strike F1 to retry reboot or F2 to run setup" & all I was trying to do is copy either or both the NTLDR & Boot.ini to one of the drives. It was running fine till it was unplugged, so what could've happened?
