Disconnect your ethernet cable. Try restarting with last good know confirguration. Turn computer on while tapping F8 key. There are options there. You may also see Repair my computer, I would definitely do that. If this does not work then your computer's boot order is messed up, you can fix it. It is possible you may have to reinstall your operating system from your recovery disk. First things first.

    I just want to add that your CD/DVD Rom may be bad. Just fixed one with similar symptoms.

The Recovery disk could be damaged or corrupted. The reason you are getting the Ethernet controller error your laptop can not find an operating system on the drive. With the aspire try ALT-F10 when you power on the system it will take you to a system restore partition. This will only work if the Hard drive is working. And it will wipe your drive so if you did not have any backups well you will lose all data on the disk.

Can you access your BIOS when you turn on the computer?

Somewhere in the BIOS you may have inadvertently changed the netbook to boot from the "Network via PXE" instead of from your local hard drive.

To enter the BIOS, you must restart the PC and enter BIOS setup or BIOS features by pressing Delete or another hardware specific key on BIOS screen startup.

From there, you should encounter a series of menus that you can navigate only with the keyboard... not the mouse. With luck, you will find a boot menu option that you can correct.

Make sure you save your choices on exiting and restart your PC. With a little bit of trial and error, you should be able to coax your netbook to boot from its internal driver.

That message is because the laptop is trying to boot through the network. You have to change the boot order in the BIOS, and put on first place the hard drive. Press the F2 key just before turning on the laptop. You should go to the bios program. On the bios, search for the Boot tab-move with the directional keys- you should see something like this: http://slackworld.berlios.de/2007/images_vmware/vm-bios-cdrom-boot.png. Press F5/F6 to move the hard drive on top. Then press F10 key, hit "Y" and then "enter". The laptop will reboot and it should boot through the hard drive-on which you have windows. If with hard drive on top, you still get that messsage, you will have to reinstall windows-it means that the files in the hard drive are corrupted- or replace the hard drive.

Ya sounds like the hard drive has died or there is a interface problem since you suffered from water damage. you may be able to get data off the hard drive by using a external hard drive connector but it may or may not work.

Sounds like your hard drive has gone bad or your OS have gotten corrupted as it's trying to boot from a network connection.
If you have a bootable CD or floppy you can try at the command prompt

chkdsk c: /f if that doesn't work try
fixmbr

If neither of these help try reloading your OS but honestly it sounds like a defunct hard drive

I would check the hdd is OK and not full of errors. When you press F8 just before boot can you select restore? If you can the restore partition is OK and it will restore itself to factory condition. If you can't, re run your restore discs or use an OS disc and install drivers when you get online.

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.

Your laptop can't find an operating system, check the operating system as it installed properly. If its is then you need to check the hard disk drive of your laptop because it is missing from the motherboard.

That means the hard drive has failed. You'll likely need a new hard drive. Go into the utility system using F2 and see if it still sees the hard drive. If it does, and you don't hear something going "click, click, click" or "kchunk, kchunk, kchunk", there's hope. If you don't hear those noises, and can borrow a Windows disk to boot from, you might be able to correct the issue running the check disk utility.

I would recommend you turn it over to someone that really knows what they're doing.

You get this kind of message when the laptop could not identify that there is a hard disk drive installed inside the laptop. Check your hard drive & make sure it is not dead.
