Please oh please help me. Acer laptop aspire 5920 Windows vista Home premium OEMAct First it shut down and this message came on: Broad com UNDI PXE-2. 1 v9.4.5 Then I shut it down and turn it on pressed...


Your computer tries to "boot" from several sources:
* your disk-drive
* your CD-ROM drive
* any USB device
* from a "boot-server" computer connected to your computer via an Ethernet cable

So, you computer tried to boot from the Broadcom Ethernet adapter, trying to "talk" to that "network boot server", via PXE ("Pre eXecution Environment").

What this probably means is that the computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, and so it tried the "alternate" boot-devices. If the disk-drive is disconnected (no power and/or no data cable) or if the disk-drive is "dead", then Windows cannot be loaded from it.

Take your computer to a qualified technician for professional trouble-shooting.

I want to install windows xp on my acer 4230


Hi shaikh_shaha

Can you get it to boot using any of the options it gives other than boot normally? If the blue screen is caused by hardware then installing xp will still present the problem. If the blue screen is an operating system crash then using the recovery disk or doing a repair install will solve the boot problem.

If you still rather install xp then you need to go into BIOS and set 1st boot device as CD. To go into BIOS you will need to press F10 or F2 (usually) as displayed on the splash screen when you power on

Does this help?

Blue Screen of Death


You'll need to setup the Acer laptop to boot from CD-ROM. Push either the F2 or F10 button when booting your laptop and it should bring-up the configuration management interface. Go through the options and confirm that Boot From CD-ROM is at the top of the list on bootable devices.

Next, you'll need your original Windows XP CD that came with the Laptop. Put it in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot your laptop. You will be given two options: 1) Re-install Windows or 2) Repair the existing Windows Installation. I recommend that you repair the existing Windows Installation as this will not destroy and data or device drivers that are install on the laptop.

Good Luck!

1)before you restart the computer insert the windows xp disk into the cd-rom

2)resart the computer

3)when the computer starts to post press the appropriate hotkey to enter the bios(usually f1,f2 or delete key) it'll tell you on the splash screen.

4)check the boot order in the bios making sure the cdrom is the first boot device. if it is press f10 to save and let the computer boot.

5)on the upper left of the screen you'll see (boot from cd)press any key(hit a key quickly)
windows xp will then start loading on the computer.

6)windows will look for previous installations of operating systems and display them on the screen
