When I turn on the computer the display continuously cycles on and off through the following screen"

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 082)

    I have the same problem on Compaq v2615US. I've replaced with "known working" hard drive but it killed this on also. It now gives the same error and can no longer be recognized in external enclosure.

Check you hard disk drive and make sure it is connected correctly. Is there a new hard drive in the device? If so you will need to install windows onto it. Otherwise as Ekse has said run the recovery console from your windows cd.

This error can be caused by one or more of the below possibilities.

  1. Drive not bootable.
  2. Bios or Cmos improperly setup.
  3. Hard drive doesn't have a bootable file.
  4. hard disk is bad or connected wrong.
Solutions: Floppy or CD that is not bootable is currently in the computer Verify that no floppy diskette or CD is currently in the computer. If a diskette or CD is in the computer that is not bootable your computer may attempt to boot from that diskette or CD causing this error message.
BIOS is not setup properly
  1. Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected properly.
  2. Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.

    - Floppy drive
    - CD drive
    - Hard drive
  3. Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.
Hard disk drive does not have bootable files on it It is possible that command.com or another bootable file may be missing from the hard disk drive. Follow the below steps to possible resolve your issue.
Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows ME users
  1. Boot from a bootable floppy diskette.
  2. At the A:\> type fdisk <press enter>
  3. If you receive a message no fixed disk present, read Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected properly.
  4. If you are able to get into fdisk, choose option 4 to display the partition information. In the partition information, if the System is listed as FAT16 or FAT32 then continue to step 5. If you have a message indicating no partitions defined, no information is on your hard disk drive and you will need to create a new partition. See our fdisk page for additional information.
  5. If you see FAT16 or FAT32 in fdisk press the ESC key until back at the A:\>
  6. Once at the A:\> type, sys c: <press enter> (only do this command if you are using the same operating system that this diskette was created on).
  7. This should return a message 'System Transferred', if you receive bad command or file name and have verified you have typed the command properly, you will need to obtain a bootable diskette with the file sys.com on it.
  8. If system was transferred successfully, reboot the computer and issue should be resolved.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP users
  1. Boot from either your ERD, your bootable Windows CD, or your bootable restore CD.
  2. Once boot attempt to repair Windows. If you're able to repair Windows remove the disks and reboot the computer.
The hard disk drive is bad or not connected properly If you have attempted all above suggestions and you are still encountering the same issues, verify the connections are properly connected to the computer if the hard drive was recently installed or the computer was moved.

Unfortunately, if all connections are setup properly and all the above recommendations have been attempted, it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad and it will need to be replaced.

Hi

The computer is unable to start from the hard drive and there is no cd in the drive to start from. so the last option it has is to try starting from network and it fails at that obviously, it requires a special server for that.

So try a windows installation cd or a recovery cd if you have one.
see if that boots.

Also when the laptop turns on you could enter the setup and check the boot order, it might be wrong and also check that the hard drive is detected in bios.

If you need more assistance let me know.

Thank you,
Ekse

This is what mine says when I turn on Intel UNDI, PXE-2 . 1 (BUILD 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v1.0.0.5(01/22/09) Check cable connection..


You hard drive is missing from the system. Just does not recognize it.
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.

As soon as you power on your PC, start pressing the F2 key. This should bring up the BIOS (Basic Input Output Systems) screen. Make sure your Hard Drive is listed in the Boot order. Usually a CD drive is listed first, then the Hard Drive as a second boot device. If you do not see the Hard Drive listed, then it probably is bad and needs replacing. If it is listed correctly in the boot order, your Operating System has crashed, and you will need the recovery disks or the instalation disk for your Operating System (XP, Win7,etc.)

Keeps saying boot failure along with Ethernet controller v1.06 and media failure, check cable


What you are describing is a hard drive issue, remove hardware and reseat it back in place sometimes this will restart the hard drive. If this fails have it tested.

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.

Wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop


Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.

I would check to make sure the hard drive is in secure and if it is I hate to say it sounds like your hard drive needs replaced.
