PXE means Pre Boot Execution. It means that the system is trying to boot from network. To solve this, you need to enter bios. You can do this by pressing F2 during startup. Find the section where you can change boot device order and set the first boot device to HDD or CD. save your settings, hopefully your problem will be solved

My laptop turns on then freezes how do i fix this?


The music you have on your computer should have no bearing on your start up problem, this is more likely to be caused by a different area of the system such as a recently installed device or program.

Have your tried starting your computer in Safe Mode - press the F8 function key during the initial boot display and before Windows starts to load.

Further recovery actions will depend on which version of Windows you have installed (XP, Vista or 7).

If you can get into System Restore then you should try restoring the system settings back to a time before this problem started if possible.

If you can't use System Restore but can start in Safe Mode, then download a copy of CCleaner and use this to perform some house-keeping clean-up to get rid of temporary files, clean up registry entries etc as this may help.

If you can't start in Safe Mode then you will need to have access to your Windows installation media (CD or DVD depending on which version of Windows). For Vista and 7 you can try performing a Startup Repair - for XP you may have to do a Repair Install.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875; Recovery Error 10-fc12-045d HELP!!


no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

Vista Startup problem


Your best bet is to download UBCD4Win This is an operating system that runs on cd that allows you to gain access to the registry and your c: There is documentation on how to put it on a thumb drive if you have one available as well. http://ubcd4win.com/forum/index.php?s=a26bbc11e226fca4a94ffb73a2d66d80&showtopic=9630 Once you download the program you will want to download ISO burner and burn the program to a CD-R. I'm gathering you don't have a disk to reinstall your operating system? Sometimes "Last Known Good Config" can resolve logon problems as well. Good luck!

SONY VAIO notebook freezes on xp splash screen every 2-4 mos.


first, ensure your system restore is turned on and make a restore point right now!...assuming you have run a thorough disk check and de-frag. then, trust the system restore. I have used it with success 100% of the 20 or so times I have used it. Next, start using the "Hibernate" power down mode. I have found this to work wonders with third-party driver problems. It seems that once a good startup happens, then freeze it (and continue to get a good startup) with hibernate from then on. Last, check about every month for the quantity of restore points that have taken place automatically by Windows. Sometimes, depending on the size of the hard drive, too many points can begin to encroach on your free space that you want for virtual memory or data. So for example, I see 15 restore points in the last month, I will dlete them all by cancelling system restore. Then I use "clean disk" scandisk and defrag. Then I turn restore back on.
