Usually the HDD is set on IDE #0. The PXE error appears if the notebook tries to boot up from the LAN but the cable is not connected or there is no possibility for LAN booting.
In my opinion there is something wrong with the HDD or the BIOS cannot recognize the HDD correctly. I would recommend checking the HDD pins. Furthermore you should change the booting order in the BIOS.
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...
Please try changing the HDD. If same thing happens the problem may be with ur O/s Cd or the Mother board
Please let me know this is used machine or New one. If new one please take a different O/S cd and install it.
If you are installing XP and your HDD is SATA then you need sata drivers.
The IDE0 refers to the HDD ide cable connector.
It may be faulty or the connection from the motherboard.
When booting up pres F2 or Del to see if your HDD is being recognised, if not the cable will ned replacing.
