I have an HP pavilion mx703
it runs on windows xp
and if you need more stats then that i can give them
well anyway, my computer was on i was enjoying it as i do, talking to ppl on the internet, i had to go out so i put up an away message and turned off the monitor and left the computer on for when i got back, so i got back it was in stand by mode (does that after an hour) usually i just move the mouse it takes me to the log in scree and everything is fine. this time i takes me to a black screen and says something about boot error, pls insert boot up disk, i'm like . so i turn off the computer reboot, it goes through the boot up screen, says hp and what not then it gets to the part where noramally its black with white letter and boots up, it does this but instead of booting up it says "Master Boot Record Error Press any key", so i do and then it says "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER"
i press enter nothing happens it the message appears again.
now hp for this model thought it would be brilliant to not give you a reformat disk, instead they put all the information on the D drive and said here you make the disks and use them when you need too, i never made them, never needed too. Those are for what they call for a full system recovery. when you boot up you can do a system recovery only for windows and not the drivers etc.. well when i do this there's another error
"NTLDR: Fatal Error 32769 reading BOOT.INI"
Alright this computers 3 years old, only been set up for 2 years. no warranty. bought from best buy. i don't know if this is an hp problem or a windows problem
any help is appreciated greatly
i'm currently using my mothers computer (borrowed) so i can keep in contact.
now mind you i was only off the other computer maybe 2 hours when this problem happened and i can't get to the boot up screen, i'm not even sure i can get into safe mode, i have no idea what to do, whether i should message hp or what
