Question about Computers & Internet
Whenever the computer is turned on, it is "shut down" to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information Message:
STOP: 0x0000000ED appears on blue screen and freezes all function. Followed recommendations but they do not work: Use safe mode to restart, press f8 to select advanced start up options. I am unable to get to the Advanced Start Up Options. Help!
Hello! Have you made any changes to your PC recently? Hardware change or software install/uninstall? If not, this could mean you HDD is dying or there is a problem with a drvier. You may be able to do a repair install if the hard drive is not damaged because according to what I've found it is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_SEQUENCE STOP:0x0000000ED. It means the there is somthing either not right with the boot sector or the file system. It's likely that when you boot you computer, if you press f10 on some OEM computers at POST (Power On Self Test) you can access a screen that allows you to repair your computer when you follow on screen directions. Be careful! If you have data you want to keep on your main C: drive, all will be restored to factory condition if you choose the wrong option! Be sure to choose repair! This option overwrites certain OS files. If you have Windows XP disk you can boot off that an do a recovery console /r when the CD boots.

check the Boot order in the BIOS and make sure that is isn't set to Boot from LAN or Network first as the error "PXE *** Media Test Failure" ( where *** refers to the NIC card ID )
does in fact refer to a pc that is trying to Boot from the LAN or Network first.
If your boot order is set to boot from your Hard Drive first then I would suspect a bad Hard Drive.
Reboot your computer.
This is necessary, as entering the BIOS utility requires that you be outside of your normal operating system.
Press the key indicated during the startup messages to enter the BIOS.
This is traditionally either the "Esc / Delete" or of the "F2" key, but it can be anything, so pay attention to the screen as your computer loads up.
Navigate through the BIOS menu screens, using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter to which device has been set to boot from.
using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults this will change the boot order press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
hope this helps
