You may access files from home or work from any computer with an Internet connection, even if you're thousands of miles away.
Run Network Repair From CMD b> The command-line interface for Microsoft Windows is accessible through the "Command Prompt" utility in the "Accessories" folder. The command prompt is particularly useful for network diagnostics and repair. For example, you can issue the "ping" command from the command prompt to test for and verify network connectivity.

Fix Network Device Driver Errors
b> A network device driver is a small program that enables a network device to communicate with the computer's operating system, as well as with other computers connected to a network. Errors may occur if the network device driver becomes corrupted because of viruses and other causes. You can fix errors by following the steps laid out below.

Check the information that came with your network device for compatibility issues; you need to know whether it is compatible with your computer, as well as the version of Windows you are using. Check if the network device is properly attached to the computer. Click on the "Start" button then choose "All programs." Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" from the list of options. Select "Device Manager" from the "Properties window." In the "Device Manager" window, click the plus sign (+) beside the "Network adapters." This will list all the network devices installed. The network device that has an error should also have a yellow exclamation point right beside the network device icon. Double-click on the network device icon that causes the error. On the "General" tab, click on the "Troubleshoot" button and answer the "Troubleshoot Wizard's" questions. Follow the resolution steps provided by the "Troubleshoot wizard." If Step 3 does not work, check if your hardware or network device came with a software disc. Use the disc to install the network device on your computer. Follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer. You can also go to the manufacturer's website to check for updates available for the device driver. If no updates are available, try manually updating the driver. Getting an updated network device driver will prevent any conflicts from arising in the future. Go back to the "Device manager" window. Double click on the device that you need to update. This should bring up a small window that has the device's properties. Click on the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Reboot your computer, if necessary. If the network device still shows an error, Go back to the device manager, right-click on the device that shows an error and select "Uninstall." Restart your computer and open the "Device Manager" again as soon as the machine is back up. Right-click on the device and then choose "Scan for hardware changes." If the device continues to malfunction, the hardware or device may already be corrupted. Consider getting professional assistance from from a computer technician. Hope this helps.

When i boot up my laptop i am getting the error message, "operating system not found." Can you please give me advice on what to do to fix my laptop? Toshiba laptop and im scared i may lose the things

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Operating system not found

The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.The hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installedand the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get afunctioning computer/laptop again.

Opertaing system not found

Your hard drive may be faulty, this is why the Windows operating system not found.
Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is detected, if not reseat the hard drive and boot up again.
If the Windows operating system not found then most likely the hard drive is faulty and to get the Notebook working again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Compaq Presario 1692 device drivers and your programs.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure
you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: -

When i turn on my Acer Aspire One D255 it says: "check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

The PXE ROM is part of your system's network interface controller. It is being entered on your system's startup to look for a bootable image on a physical network connection and if found, to boot from that image. If there is no network cable connection to your system or if there is but no bootable device is found on that connection, the result is the error message that you got. As to why your system is entering the PXE ROM can be explained by looking at your system's Setup Utility,,,

Press F2 while powering up to enter the Setup Utility and use the cursor control keys to go to the Boot tab which then shows the Boot priority order. The default order is as follows...
1. IDE0
2. IDE1
5. Network Boot : LEGACY PCI DEVICE
Your system's internal hard disk drive should be listed beside IDE0 and it will be accessed first to look for a boot record. If the drive fails to boot, the next devices in the list will be accessed accordingly until either a bootable device is found or the last item which is USB CDROM. If a USB CDROM is plugged in on one of the system's USB ports, it will be checked for a bootable record and if not found or no CDROM is plugged in, then the system displays the last part of the message -- insert boot disk and press any key.

Press F12 while powering up enters the Boot Menu which has the Boot Option Menu. This menu should show by default the following...
1. IDE 0: (the name/type information for your system's internal hard disk drive
2. Network Boot: LEGACY PCI DEVICE

If there is no hard disk drive information shown beside IDE 0, then the possibilities are that
1. there is no internal hard drive present
2. there is a hard drive but it has failed
If there is hard disk drive information and pressing enter to select it does not result in an operating system startup, then the drive's startup partition has been wiped and so it has no bootable image.

If there seems to be an internal hard drive present but it has no bootable image, you may attempt recovery from the installation images in the hidden partition. The recovery allows restoration of...
1. operating system to factory defaults
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)

Press Alt and F10 keys together while powering up and the Acer logo is showing to enter Acer's eRecovery Management. Follow the instructions to do the recovery.

The simplest solution would be to reinstall your operating system.
1) Save all your documents/files/pictures off to a portable drive (USB flash, External Hard Drive, etc) 1) a) See step 4 and then come back here. 1) b) Save drivers on to another device.
2) Insert and boot to the CD/DVD that came with your computer and follow the prompts to reinstall Windows XP Home. 3) When prompted reformat your HD (WARNING THIS WILL ERASE ALL THE CONTENTS OF YOUR DRIVE), please make sure you copied your stuff onto a separate device and brought it to another computer to check that it is there before you reformat.
4) You may need certain drivers (software that allows parts of the computer to run like your sound, and/or video) if you don't have access to a computer attached to the internet got to step one before you erase your Hard Drive and download all relevant drivers from your computer's manufacturer. Examples are or
5) When your computer OS has been reinstalled, don't forget to reinstall your antivirus software, your printer, and what ever else you use.
6) When everything else has failed, it may be hardware related. You'll spend more money bringing this old computer to a repair shop than you will buying a new computer at walmart or staples.
