Pxe e53 no boot filename received


Sounds like it is trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Make sure you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the cd/dvd drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and the screen for which key it says to hit to Change The Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Select the Hard Drive as the boot device and let it boot up. If you are successful then each time you boot you will need to do this process unless you make it a permanent change.

To make a permanent change to the boot process turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to restart and boot again. Once you are in the Bios or System Setup look for any reference to Boot, Boot Sequence or Boot Order. It might be a tab you you select at the top of the window. Change the boot order to CD\DvD as 1st and the Hard Drive as 2nd. This is the normal boot order so that if anything goes wrong with the hard drive, you can boot from the cd/dvd by putting in a repair disk or operating system disk. Just make sure you don't have a music cd, movie dvd or anything in the cd/dvd drive when you boot. Save the settings and exit the Bios or System Setup and Reboot.

Computer won't power on right away


Wll it could be your pci controller is damaged.. (In thic case the only solution is to buy a new board)

Or you bios might need flashing..

Unplug your system
Open up the system,
put back in your network card
remove the battery on the main board
hit the power button 7 times
replace the battery
plug it back in and try to boot now

When it boots, you need to enter the setup and load your default settings then save and exit..

Loud bang from system.Unit starts immediately power is supplied.Power switch does nothing.H/Drive and players run.No video ( card OK ) checked with another card. Can the problem be motherboard?


The load bang is most like an exploding capacitor in the switch mode power supply, especially if there is a burnt electrical smell from the power supply.
I suggest you borrow a switch mode power supply, remove the old power supply and install the replacement power supply. make sure it has the same or larger wattage unit.
If the computer still does not boot up then the exploding power supply has damaged the motherboard, and you need to replace then motherboard too. This may not be a cost effective solution.
This is an opportunity to get a new and better computer.

When you say the CMOS is set to reset, this should not be the case for normal usage. and maybe the problem if left in the on position the system will not start (which sounds like your problem).

Disk boot failure


In the bios, make sure that the sata ports are all activated or enabled. Since this is a major hardware change, the hard drive that was in the computer may not boot because it may have a recovery parttion on it that keeps it from going through with the boot. Try the fix below using the windows installtion disc. This fix will most likely not work with a recovery disc...it must be any type of a windows installation disc.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

Try this,....you need a windows disc.

Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks.

My PC does not boot when I press the power button on. The power comes alright but it will not boot and load files unless I leave it on for a long time and later reboot it again. This has been the problem...


You need to clear cmos usually on board is a little coloured jumper,but also first disconnect power plugs from board which come from the big psu,normally have a little clip you have to squeeze,find cmos normally 3 pins with a littl jumper move it from one set of pins to next set of 2 pins,you normally have i pin exposed,so move left or right and hold for 10 seconds make sur e you put back as it was,reconnect psu plugs ,reboot enter the bios normally Delete button or what it says on your screen normally setup button ,reset your time and date and make sure you save your settings before you leave bios page

Keeps turning off


Sounds like a hardware failure. Possilbly the motherboard, more than likely, the power supply.
But then - maybe neither.
Shut it off completely, once you restart, start hitting the F8 key ( once a second ) until you see the " Safe Mode" choices screen. Drop down and select the " Last known Good Configuration" option and hit enter.
If this doesnt work, try the same proceedures ( restart - F8 ) but this time select safe mode - at the top of the list.
If you sucessfully boot in safe mode, you have a system file problem that could be virus related, file table corruptions or registry problems or all combined.
