What is your computer brand?
Just turn it on and keep pressing esc or delete or F2 key (depending on the model. But yuo can try any of them. This will take you into the bios screen. In the bios check if hdd is detected. If not - replace HDD>if yes > reset bios to defaults and start recovery (using supplied RDVDs or Recovery partition.
You will find exact instructions in user manual.t
thanx

SOURCE: my aspire 5315 laptop is stuck on this sceen,

Hello higgstwiligh,

The above message is mainly informational and doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. The acronym 'PXE' stands for Preboot Execution Environment. It's an environment to bootstrap computers using a network interface card. Usually the reboot is done by a remote computer on a LAN (Local rea Network). The Realtek NIC (Network Interface Card) somehow expected a PXE boot to be taking place when the computer was restarting. One solution is to restart the computer and go to the boot menu (F2 on some systems) and choose to boot from the master drive.

*Here's a link to a good article explaining what PXE is: http://www.search.com/reference/Preboot_Execution_Environment

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating below.

Have a great day,

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

From the description it is the hard drive, remove hardware and reseat back into position, sometimes this will restart the hard drive, if no change chances are you will need it replaced, but I would suggest getting it tested first.

Problem with acer laptop. My laptop stopped booting after restart. I just moved my laptop from bed to floor . while in power on the program just crash not responding, then came a blue screen and said...


Click the power button and watch the screen to see which key it says to press to get into the Bios or System Setup. Change the boot order or boot sequence. It looks like it is set to boot from a Network or LAN first. You want to boot from the hard drive 1st or the cd drive 1st and the hard drive 2nd. This will change it permanently. Then reboot.

There might also be an option to change it temporarily when you boot the system. Just watch the screen and see if it shows you which key to press to change the boot order or boot sequence. It is only effective for this one boot.

Hi, When I turn on my Laptop - Acer Aspire 5536, the following writing appears; Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11 .4.1 Copyright (C) 2000-2008 Broadcom Corporation Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel...


usually, this message means that when your computer is booting it is trying get the operating system files from a network location (shared folder)

what you need to do is to make sure your BIOS is not set to boot from network.

1. when the computer starts, there is a message like "to enter BIOS press Esc" or any other key like F2 or F10
2. in the BIOs settings, make sure the order of the boot is: DVD/CD then hard disk. make sure there is no Network booting in the list

I was using my laptop last night when it just shut down on me, then when i went to turn it back on it goes to the acer "start up" like page before skipping to a black screen and displaying the following...


If you have a BOOT CD then try to boot and go to windows.
Or you can use windows setup CD but go for repair only.
For the future it is a good idea to INSTALL WINDOWS in a USB mini drive and boot the computer from USB. You have to go to BIOS and set USB default drive.
It is a good idea to clone your HD in a CD.

This is showing because the computer is not seeing the hard drive that contains the operating system. In some cases this is because the hard drive has come dislodged from the interface on the motherboard. Dells are good for this because the hard drive slides into the side of some models. Try reseating the hard drive and reboot. Your worse case scenario is that your hard drive has failed. The reason you are seeing the PXE-MOF etc. is that the laptop ias now looking for a network hard drive to boot from. It can't find the intenal hard drive so it is searching for other means to boot.
