    I attempted a reseat and this didnt work either. i removed drive and connected it up to another pc as a slave to remove the data so the drive is working in that sense. for what ever reason the bios is acting dumb or the MBR is gone. the vista disk is not seeing the drive either so unable to run a repair. people shouldnt buy Acer lol

Sounds as if the HDD crashed. No fix but to replace HDD. Sometimes putting it in the freezer 2 hours and then letting it thaw works, but after multiple attempts and the same failure, you will need a new HDD.

    Thanks for using FixYa. Your Rating of my solution to your problem was THANKS FOR TRYING. I would appreciate a re-evaluation of your rating - as the answer I gave was correct. There are not many experts that provide answers to FREE questions beacuse anything under HELPFUL reduces their overall rating percentage.



    The description FixYa uses for the rating system is misleading - a THANKS FOR TRYING means the answer was not helpful in solving your problem.



    We are working toward a better rating description to help alleviate the bad ratings.



    I took the time and answered your question to the best of my ability and request a change to at least HELPFUL.



    Thank you.

You have no choice but to open it up, this is to check that the hard drive works or has disslodged, pull the hard drive out and then reseat it again, reboot the laptop and see if the bios has found the hard drive, if it does try to boot into it

kind regards

When I have turned on my Acer Aspire 6920 computer this morning it just goes to a screen that says the following Client MAC ADDR : 00 A0 D1 A8 32 D3 Check Cable COnnection PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM...


The first bit with the MAC address is there because it's trying to boot from LAN and it is exiting because no IP address is assigned to it by the DHCP. If your laptop is connected to a network, you can use this feature to image the laptop across the network with an imaging software like Norton Ghost.

The last bit, "Operating System Not found" means that you do not have Windows or any other operating system installed on your laptop. At this point, you can either reinstall your operating system or use the recovery disc that came with the laptop to restore it back to it's factory settings.

The message you are seeing is your system trying to boot off of a network source. The boot device order has either been changed in your BIOS or the system is not seeing the hard drive with your operating system on it and is not able to boot from it.

System won't boot, I get an "Operating System Not Found" message. Hard Drive mat be shot.


The answer is explained by yourself just there, you have no operating system installed

Get a disk for an operating system, preferably XP, Vista or Wiondows 7, then when turning on your PC choose to boot from disk.

These operating systems could be quite expensive I'm afraid.

You could download one off another computer and burn it to disk, but this is illegal, so I'm not going to tell you that ;)

Hope this helps
