755 pxe-e55 proxyDHCP service did not reply to request


PXE == Pre Execution Environment

Your computer can "boot" from various devices:
* floppy-disk
* CD-ROM
* USB memory stick
* DVD drive
* hard-drive
* over the network

If you don't have a "network boot server" somewhere on your network, you will get that "boot failed" message.

Enter BIOS SETUP mode, and disable "PXE boot over network", and make sure that the hard-drive and/or the CD/DVD drives are listed as candidates to be eligible boot-devices.

Pxe-mof exiting pxe rom


If you are not booting from a network, PXE-boot is the wrong boot option.

You have to change the boot order so that the PC will boot from your HDD. This can be set in the boot option in your BIOS.

Depending on the type of BIOS, you will enter F2 or Delete during the POST( when the white letters appear on the screen after you turned it on). This will enter you into the BIOS setup. boot options are usaully the last tab. Either disable the PXE-boot or change the priority so that it boots from the HDD first. Please, if you are unformiliar with this, reference the manual or ask someone with some IT background.

If the problem still exists after you configured the boot options your hard disk drive might not be readable. The BIOS just goes to the next availible boot device.

Pxe-e61 media test failure check cable


The PXE error message suggests that your computer is trying to perform a network boot which is why it is saying there is a cable issue.
Check your BIOS settings and disable the option to boot from the Network, plus check that the computer is configured to boot from a valid internal hard disk drive. It is Ok to have a CD or USB device listed ahead of the hard drive in the Boot order as this is normal to allow booting from CD or DVD media or USB devices.
Check that internal hard disk is operational, that the cables to it are firmly connected at both ends (the drive and the motherboard).
If you still have a problem, then provide more information on what symptoms or error messages your are seeing.

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

Long answer:

Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* the 'A:' diskette drive
* the CD-ROM drive
* a bootable image on a USB memory-stick
* via the network-adapter, if there is a "boot-server" somewhere on your local network.

So, enter BIOS SETUP, and check that your disk-drive is one of "enabled" boot devices. Also, check that the disk-drive is "detected" by the BIOS.

If your disk-drive is not connected, or not responding, and there is nothing in the 'A:' drive and nothing in the CD-ROM drive, then the PXE (Pre eXecution Environment) will try to "talk" to a boot-server on your network. If no such server is found, you get the "check cable connection" message, and you are prompted to put some "bootable" media into the 'A:' drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Short answer: your disk-drive has "died". You need to replace it, and to install Windows onto the new disk-drive.

I hope that you recently made a good "backup" of all your data files!

Hp compaq d530-sff issues


These are network boot cards, basically it's looking for boot options from across your network. You can change the boot options in your BIOS or there is usually a key combination to press that is displayed on screen during boot to shut of the PXE boot of your network card.

System will not boot up


Hi there
Hit F2 on boot up and go into the Bios settings, look for the boot order and change it to HDD as first boot device, hit F10 and save and exit.
The PC will restart and should boot into the hard drive.

Good luck
