Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook

1 Answer

PC will not boot.

When turning on my sons PC (A135-S7403) the Toshiba screen appears with two choices F2 setup, F12 boot device selection menu.
When going to boot menu the following message appears over and over:
For realtek RTL8100E/8101E Fast ethernet network adapter v1.02 (060510) PXE-E61: media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: exiting PXE ROM Intel UNDI , PXE-2.1 (build 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation. I cannot seem to get past this everything I have tried does not work, even using the Toshiba system recovery disc it came with. If you have a solution, I would be ever so grateful, thanks.

How do I know if my boot ste up is correct


If your PC doesn't boot up using the hard drive, you can check that by looking for the F2 or F12 displayed on the screen during boot up. Then start pressing F2 or F12 quickly to get setup.
In setup follow the directions and set your "boot device" to "hard drive"
Hope this is what you needed.

HOW TO REBOOT


This is an open ended question as I am not aware of your problem, however,
Disconnect your power supply and remove the battery.
Refit the battery and plug in the AC adaptor, check the power light and battery light are illuminated.
Keep disconnect any periferals, (USB devices) and ensure the DVD drawer is empty. Press the power button. The POST should now start up flashing a line of led's across the top of the keyboard first followed by the hard drive light.
The BIOS F2 or F12 choice screen will now appear. If it doesn't the laptop hasn't completed POST and can go no further.
Press F12 and select Hard Drive for the boot device, the laptop will then try and boot from the hard drive, just as the boot chioce menu dissapears press F8, this will opem a further menu allowing you to repair your system. This, if selected, will collect data stored on drive E and repair the main system putting the OS back as it was when you first purchased the machine.
If that won't work or there is a corrupt file or serious error, you will require an OS system disk.
Place the System disk in the DVD drive, press power until the system tries to boot and when you get to the boot selection menu, press F12 again but select CD/DVD as the boot drive.
Follow my last instructions again and you will have a fresh/repaired system and a working laptop again.
When all is OK go to www.computers.toshiba-europe.com and let toshiba download and install the latest drivers and BIOS.
Hope that helps.
