System will not boot up

My computer has a black screen with a message''pxe boot file not found'' I've called the geek squad and they explain that sounds like my system is trying to boot from a network and not from the computer.

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

First a error message, then no reaction


Your computer seems to have problem locating your HDD. Or the other issue could be your boot drive selection on boot up. Try selecting your boot drive in CMOS setup by either pressing "del" key, "F12", "F2", or informed by your computer. This should take you to the CMOS setup. Find "Boot priority" and give your HDD the 1st choice. Also make sure the computer sees your HDD. This should be under "configuration". You also need to check you CMOS battery, this is a button cell on the mother board. If this battery run out of power the CMOS memory cannot be saved and go back to factory default, where the HDD is not known. Please make note of all the changes you have made, so that if you made changes which you shouldn't have, than you can trace back your steps and correct it. If the above suggestion shouldn't work you may need to consider changing the Mother Board. PXE boot is a network boot to explain generally. You need to have a network and a domain hosting your boot systems. If you want to know in detail go to this link http://www.howtogeek.com/57601/what-is-network-booting-pxe-and-how-can-you-use-it/ . Or don't bother reading geek information :). Let me know your outcome and Good Luck.

If the sound you are referring to is a clicking sound, then it is a hard drive failure.
Your computer is trying to boot up the operating system from the hard drive, but when it fails to access the hard drive, it tries to boot up from other devices configured on the BIOS. Apparently, your next choice for booting the operating system is set to the LAN card. Hence, you get the message "PXE-E61 Media test failure", which means that the computer tried to boot up the operating system over the network but it found out that your network cable is not connected to your computer's network interface card.

Hi, When I turn on my Laptop - Acer Aspire 5536, the following writing appears; Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11 .4.1 Copyright (C) 2000-2008 Broadcom Corporation Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel...


usually, this message means that when your computer is booting it is trying get the operating system files from a network location (shared folder)

what you need to do is to make sure your BIOS is not set to boot from network.

1. when the computer starts, there is a message like "to enter BIOS press Esc" or any other key like F2 or F10
2. in the BIOs settings, make sure the order of the boot is: DVD/CD then hard disk. make sure there is no Network booting in the list

My laptop isnt working.as soon as u turn it on a black screen comes up and the message display says PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM!! how can i fix it


It goes to a network boot rather than booting straight to the HDD. restart your computer and press f2 immediatley. you are now on the BIOS page. check if your hard drive is detected and if not call Lenovo to have it replaced/repaired. if it is detected, after the PXE error, your computer should boot up just fine.

Hi:
These messages are usually associated with a computer trying to boot off a network. In your case, your computer is not able to boot off of the hard drive, or CD, so it is looking for anything to boot off of. This means that your hard drive has failed or the boot sector is corrupt. To fix it you either need to reload windows, and or possibly replace the hard drive too.

First, though, you should check the system date and time to make sure they are correct. A bad system CMOS battery could affect your booting process too.

Toshiba satellite is having issues


First thing to do is stop booting up the computer. This message means the Hard Disk Drive (HDD or "C Drive") has errors. Errors can mean disk corruption including bad sectors and/or physically damaged hardware inside the disk drive.
Since you are able to log into the computer, if even briefly, perhaps the HDD is what I like to call "fail-ING"; there may be hope of retrieving some of your data (pictures, etc). Ask your local Geek Squad Agent help you - if damage is severe, this is not necessarily something you can fix yourself (e.g. "fail-ED" HDD).
Remember, I said not to keep booting the computer - the more times you boot a "fail-ING" drive the less likely you will retrieve anything. If you insist, however, on a DIY method - you could learn more about the following:
1. New HDD installed
2. HDD Enclosure (USB)
3. Acronis Software
4. A nice drink and a couple of hours to clone the old HDD

OR 1. Geek Squad Agent
2. Credit Card/Checkbook

HINT: if you talk to a Geek Squad Agent and s/he can't explain Acronis software, find an Agent who can...

While running, laptop will reboot and then pxe media test failure


You say it happens when you leave the system running for a while, one of two things comes into play screensaver or power saving settings, if you have a screen saver turn it if. Go into control panel, click on power options and set turn off monitor, hard drive and system standby all to never on mains and battery.
I don't know what the problem is, but one of those may be causing it to happen.
