SOURCE: can t boot up no disk to do so , broadcom undi

That message is coming from the motherboard. What it means is that your operating system wasn't found and the computer is trying to boot from a network. Because the network boot failed, you get the mysterious message.

This is happening because the computer can't read from the hard drive. It may be because the hard drive is bad or has been affected by a virus. Or its connection to the motherboard may have worked loose. Open the drive access cover and make sure the drive is firmly connected and try restarting your computer. If you still have the same trouble you'll need to have the hard drive or system board checked out.

First ther was a error message, then the pc make nothing.


If you have a spike in the power, unplug, remove the battery, then hold the power button down for 1min or 60s, to release any built up shock power. then insert the battery, (no power cord) push and hold power button for 1 -2 - 3 s. release and see what happens.. now what OS is installed on the HDD. and check the BIOS to see how the boot sequence is set... seems your error show you set to boot to NetWork not HDD

I have a fiujitsu hard drive in my acer aspire 5315 my keyboard has no keys just some rubber tips and when i turn on its says broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v10. 0. 9 copyright yada yada and then it says: PXE-E61:...


The keyboard needs replacing. Replacement keyboard for your laptop maybe available from this WEB site.
PXE-E61 ERROR
The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

sounds like a hard drive failure (no disk) so it is trying to boot from a network (pxe error).
You can reload windows if you have the CD. If it finds the hard drive you will have to run a repair - if you are lucky you will have your data.
If it doesn't give you the option of a repair, you will have to do a clean install (and lose all data).
If you can't install windows, you will need to buy a new hard drive - make sure you get the right type (SATA or PATA). Remove your old one first and see which one you have. It will say on the hard drive, and if it is SATA it will have a narrow cable (less than 1/2"). If it is PATA it will be a wide cable (2-3 inches).
Google the internet for details on whichever option do.

Wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop


Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.

I brought the computter about month ago.. and now its appears ::


This is a common problem but there may be more than one fix

The easiest is to go to your bios and set the boot device order.

It is quite conceivable that it is set to try and boot from network first

You should select HARD DRIVE or CD DRIVE as you first option and then reverse that order for your second boot device
