Computer runs for a while, then looses HDD. Can not register.
While setting up the notebook, it restarted stating network boot location not available. I checked the settings, and no hard drive was recoginzed. I finally got it going again, but have never been able to register the product. Their web site says it is an eligal serial number and they do not start with LUS......
Anyone else have this problem?

Hi, usually reboot from network error occurs when the computer cannot detect the hdd on the computer where the Ooperating system is installed. Try removing the ethernet cable when you restart the computer. And also remove any devices that is connected on the computer via USB. If problem still occurs. try to send the computer to a local technician to check the hdd on the computer for errors.
Thank you for using Fixya, you recommendatino is highly appreciated for the free support.
I've gist had the same problem after flashing bios ... go to BIOS and change the SATA mode to IDE. it worked for me. original instructions: also You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network. PLUS it seems if only 128 MB is showing as memory then the memory sticks might be damaged and not able to retain information/data to complete the installation process. Best take them out clean it properly & replace & try again. Nothing to do with BIOS!
Start the computer and hit the F2 key until you get into the BIOS. When in the BIOS you can see in the
Main/general page whether the hard drive is seen by the system. You
will see HDD (hard drive) CD-ROM which is the optical disk drive. If
you see the hard drive the look for boot options in the tabs. When you
get to boot options set the HDD as the first boot device, save the
settings and exit the BIOS.
Hopefully the laptop will restart and boot from the hard drive, thus into Windows.
If the hard drive is not seen in the BIOS then the hard drive has failed and needs replacing. If you have a BIOS password then start the computer hit F12 repeatedly until you see the boot option menu and choose the HDD.
This is indicative of either the HDD interface has come loose from the HDD or the HDD has failed. The code above appears when the HDD is not recognized and the computer is looking for a network drive to boot from.
you need to enter a boot disk/recovery disk/windows xp disk into your CD drive and in the system BIOS select the CD drive to boot first. Once the CD has loaded you can re-format your HDD to NTFS and re-install windows
You will, however loose all your data but your HDD will function again with windows
