dam NTLDR

i really think my computer is retarded. i went home for lunch and walked by it and it restarted itself and said NTLDR could not be found or something like that and now it wont boot up. i don't know what to do. my computers at work don't have a floppy drive, so i can't get the files from here to use to boot the one at home. i guess i will have to reformat the drive and start over, unless someone here has an easy fix for me. i am running XP and this has happened 2 times now. i looked at Microsoft's site and it really looks difficult to me.

Do you have an XP disk? Boot off of it and there is a "fixboot" command in the recovery console. I've fixed several non booting XP instances with this command.

after you enter the number for the correct windows installation then
you will be prompted to enter an admin password.

then you can type in help to see the list of commands. there are several commands and among them are fixboot and fixmbr.

example~ fixboot c:
