Check the cpu cooler for dusts. If possible clean the cooler as much as you can.

    Try to start windows in safe mode. You do this by pressing F8 during system startup. A menu will appear, select safe mode, press enter twice. Run the computer in safe mode and see if it freezes again

If you say that cooling helps, this sounds like a classic case of overheating, you have to clean the fan and air vents on the laptop, you can do this by buying a can of compressed air and blasting the air through the vents and fan to clear it of dust and fluff. I would also check that the system fan is working too.

hope this helps

    go into the bios (F2) on boot up and set the bios to defaults, save changes, and boot again, if you still get the same result, remove the memory, clean and reseat it and try again

    keep us informed

Pxe-mof exiting pxe rom


If you are not booting from a network, PXE-boot is the wrong boot option.

You have to change the boot order so that the PC will boot from your HDD. This can be set in the boot option in your BIOS.

Depending on the type of BIOS, you will enter F2 or Delete during the POST( when the white letters appear on the screen after you turned it on). This will enter you into the BIOS setup. boot options are usaully the last tab. Either disable the PXE-boot or change the priority so that it boots from the HDD first. Please, if you are unformiliar with this, reference the manual or ask someone with some IT background.

If the problem still exists after you configured the boot options your hard disk drive might not be readable. The BIOS just goes to the next availible boot device.

AMD Data Change - Update new data to DMI! PXE-E53 - No Boot Filename PXE-M0F - Exiting nVidia boot agent. what do I do?


I need a little more info on this. I assume your using windows 7? I have a couple of thoughts on possible problems. It sounds as if your Bios is ether corrupted or might be set to boot in the wrong order or your hard drive has failed. I do not know what your system is but when you first boot up you should see a comment (usually at bottom of screen) that tells you which key to press to access your Bios. I do not know how much experience you have with computers but you need to be careful in there because if you change the wrong setting you could cause problems within your system. So after accessing your Bios screen you should be able to check the order of your boot process. (I'm thinking you might have multiple hard drives or partitions?) If everything checks out there is a good possibility that your hard drive has failed. Good luck

GM5664 will not boot up, What can I do?


There's something very wrong with the boot order from your pc: apparently now it's set to boot from network - something that is done only in network servers.  This happens when the BIOS battery (or the BIOS chip itself) start failing - it's time to start saving for a new pc, this motherboard has started to show signs of old age.
Enter the BIOS and set a new order: put the cd first, then the hard disk second and finally disable all the others. Save, exit and it should boot just fine
