You hope something is just "loose" Make sure your harddrive(HD) is completely seated...matter of fact...anything that is modular...and can be removed should be assumed " loose". Check your memory..hardrive..soundcard...or anything else you can replace or upgrade yourself. Take it out...put it back in...or just make sure its seated all the way if you are worried about taking things out. Look at any and all connections...wires and cables..some things not modular and are permanent inside, can come loose too.

If that does not work...you could try a new HD that already has windows loaded and see if it boots up. Make sure its compatible... Its not detecting your HD which has your operating system on it..I would start there. Sorry if you know any of this wanted to cover the bases.

Thats a broken hard drive or hard drive connection, Not much you can do to the hard drive to fix it I'm afraid.

If you have another hard drive available then pop it in place of the old one and where it says "PXE-E61:Media test failure, Check cable" It should change to ":Media passed" ... If this is the case then your hard drive is kaput.

If it still comes up with the same message then you have broken the laptops motherboard. And from that there is not much you can do without opening the whole thing and replacing the motherboard which is a fiddly and confusing job.

SOURCE: System failure to boot

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

SOURCE: 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.

Wont go past first screen


First try this unplug from AC, remove battery, plug in try to boot normally. If that fails Open BIOS, Boot Order or the BOOT MENU, Boot from HDD first, and save changes and reboot, if that fails try a system restore/recovery.

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.

I need help with something. My eMachines D520 laptop will not boot up. Here is what the message says:Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Realtek RTL8111B/8111C...


Your machine is trying to boot off a network (PXE). Either you stole it from work, or the bios is not set up right and / or the hard disc is either no good or the cable is disconnected from it. The boot sequence in BIOS should tell it to not boot from the network first, unless it's on a corporate network. It should say boot from the hard drive first. If it's set to do that and it fails, then your hard drive is probably bad. Dropping a laptop on the ground will do that; did you loan it out, recently???

When I turn on my laptop it goes to a black screen that tells me... Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller...


based the message that you encounter, it may pertain to boot priority or to BIOS configuration.

My recommendation is for you to access and reset the BIOS settings on your computer.

When i turn the power on on start up it goes to a black screen and says intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082) copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller...


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.
