I have an older gateway with windows XP home edition installed. I think i closed the wrong process thinking it was AVG, cause when I restarted computer it said ntldr missing. I put the XP cd in and chose the repair selection from there on the command line i did the copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\ thing (which fixed the ntldr missing problem)to get the ntldr back, but now it just starts up goes to the Gateway logo then switches to the PowerSaver Mode display then goes back to the Gateway logo screen, it just keeps doing this. The computer wont boot: load the OS, I cant figure out whats wrong its like it cant find the boot files. I have stuff on the hard drive so I dont want to do a complete reinstall of XP and lose all my data. I would really appreciate any help as I need the computer to do work. The boot version is 4.0.19 the gateway model # is MFATXSTLEL2FOKERNTD50051800 I dont know if that helps. I dont know if this is a malware issue or something else please help me.
