If it is a recovery cd, just boot it and follow the prompts.
If It is not, nborrow a XP cd from a friend and installit using the license that is on the bottom of the laptop. If it is any other OS, you have to find that cd, and do the smae, boot and install.

Hello, Abdi.

I have some suggestions for you. It's possible that your hard drive is failing. Run Diagnostics and check your hard drive. Upon boot, press F12 rapidly (or could be F2) and choose the Diagnostics.

Another suggestion is to use System Restore, in the event that your operating system file(s) is problematic. Again, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

Hope this helps.

As your message suggested, you have a hardware fault which means your camera is possibly faulty.
I would book it into a repair shop and get it fixed.
Hope that helps.

Hp compaq 6720s says pxe - e61


PXE is the boot option from a bootable network card, so basically the BIOS isn't seeing any of your bootable drives and going trying to PXE-boot off your network. Check the boot options in your BIOS and make sure your drives are detected by the BIOS. If they are not listed, then the drive has likely gone bad.

Hi there
A clue is in the error message you get "hard drive failure" this means the hard drive which holds the operating system is corrupt and will not allow a reinstall, you have to purchase a new hard drive before you can reinstall the operating system and then you'll be good to go.
If the laptop is still covered my the manufacturers warranty i recommend you take advantage of that and send it in for repair, if its out of warranty you'll be able to get one from any reputable PC store.


Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Wiping a Macbook clean like NEW


You need the original Mac OS recovery cds to initialize the hard drive and reinstall the software. Aplle calls formatting the hard drive- Initializing the hard drive. If you don't have the cds, then you need to purchase the Mac OS cds. either Tiger or Panther (again, that is what Apple calls it's software)

If the unit still boots up but is having issues, you can click on the hard drive icon. , click on Applications. Click on Disk Utility.
Click on repair. The OS will repair any errors that it finds. If this works, great. If not you will have to use the Mac OS cds.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Software installation corrupted system laptop wont stay on!!!!


Take the battery out and only have the adaptor hooked up to the laptop, then try to a fresh install of Windows XP and see if it goes thru. If it does then your battery is the culprit.

Some HD manufacturers provide utilities for Disk Recovery. You can usually download these from their site. If you are lucky it is just the drives Master Boot Record that is damaged. The fact that the drive is recognizable is in your favour I think. Unfortunately when power is restored after an outage there is often a power surge or spike on your AC which can damage electronic equipment. Many devices these days work on such low voltages and current that it doesn't take much. A good surge protector is a must for computer equipment.
