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

This error is a network boot error.
The error message indicates that the client received at least one valid DHCP/BOOTP offer, but does not have a boot filename to download.

Once windows vista updated itself, now my computer freezes and doesn't want to even boot up...anything I can do to fix this?


Remove the ram memory one at a time and power on each time, if this fixes the problem you have a bad stick, if this fails! restore computer back to a earlier stage before this update occured.

When turn on computer NO WINDOWS XP .On the screen was PXE-E53 : No boot file name received PXE-MOF: Existing Broadcom PXE ROM Operating System not found


That means your computer trying to boot from LAN port. Go bios and change the settings of PXE boot to disable and make Hard disk as first boot device. Save the settings and restart your pc. It will work

Receiving PXE-E61 media test failure/PXE-M0F exiting intel PXE RO


If you get this error in a black screen before windows xp can boot up....
CLIENT MAC ADDR: xxxxxxx GUID: xxxxxxxxxx
PXE-E53: no boot filename recived
PXE-MOF: exiting intel PXE Rom
Your network card's settings in bios have somehow been changed. PXE means Pre-Execution Enviroment. In other words, it allows your network card to connect to a network server to pull operating system images off the network and other files without having an operating system installed.

The Fix,
Go into BIOS press F2 or F12 whatever your PC's screen at bootup says. In Bios, reset your bios settings to the default bios settings, or original settings. This fixed my problem with the above error. Nothing else fixed it. Windows Recovery cd will not fix it, because you cannot boot windows if this error is still occuring, Your network card will keep prompting DHCP to search for a network.
Its a bios function not a windows function.
