Question about Computers & Internet

My hp pavilion zv5320us laptop will not boot up... Once it turns on it asks where do i want to boot from, the boot order or from LAN. If i do not enter anything it goes to a black screens and says : For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2. 13 (020326) PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE R0M Rarely, it will ask me how do I want to boot and it will give me the options of Safe mode, Safe mode with command prompt, Safe mode with Network, or just to start windows normally. No matter which one i choose, it says boot failure after about 5-10 minutes. These are the only three screens that comes up. it is also making all sorts of wierd noises. Is their anything that I can do?

SOURCE: windows dont come up.

I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.

SOURCE: My Toshiba Satellite P25 will

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am tempted to think that the CMOS/BIOS could not detect the internal hard disk and therefore is booting from the LAN. Pls reboot and enter CMOS/BIOS setup. Thereafter determine if the computer could detect the hard disk either auto or manually.

If the above solution has merit, pls click on my "Ask Me" to explore additional options, postback how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

If you use ethernet, then your connection, possibly the cable, is not working.

IF you don't use the ethernet connection, and have no cable plugged in for ethernet, the warning is NORMAL.

SOURCE: Computer does not boot up

Sounds like the computer cannot find your hard drive and is looking for other means to boot the machine. It first is looking for a network hard drive, then it is looking at the DVD. When that fails it is asking you to check the computer for hardware errors. Check to make sure the hard drive is seated in it's compartment. The DV6000 has an adapter that fits on the end of its SATA drive and sometimes that adapter can wiggle loose from the contacts. Just take the hard drive out and then re-seat it to the connector. In most cases it is either a loose connection or the hard drive has suffered a failure.

Hp pavilion dv9000 takes a long time to get past the bios screen. It won't boot of dvd either??


Check BIOS boot options and assign local hard drive as first for faster boot. This is also where you set CD\DVD as first to boot from disc. Look for F Key press on start up. It will be shown on screen. These can vary.

Many HP machines also have a boot menu option during boot. Again an F key and may vary.

Hello my Hp Pavilion dv5215us is having some problems. When I turn it on it says PXE and something about LAN. so I checked online and I was told to change the Boot Order but im not sure how to do that...


F1 or F2 key to access bios. Then go into the tab that says boot order and set the boot devices as:
1.) Optical drive
2.) HDD
3.) whatever is left

If you are getting the PXE message though, it indicates that the laptop is not finding a boot record. You need to check if there is a working hard drive fitted, whether it needs windows re-installing (or repairing) and whether it is even appearing in the bios as a device.

If it is , you should try to install windows from the CD disc, if the boot order is set to CD first, it will prompt you to press a key to boot from CD, after that (and if windows was installed on the hard drive) run it till it finds the previous installation of the OS and repair it via the installation cd

What is the default password bios of the HP


Hi,

There is not default password as such but it comes up only when it is created.In order to get rid of the password we need to boot the computer to the BIOS .
Turn the notebook off and then when you turn it on or lets say as soon as you press the power button to turn it on start tapping the f10 key on the keyboard repeatedly till you get a screen that says BIOS SETUP UTILITY ,once you are on that screen press the f5 key on the keyboard it displays a mesage that says load default,press y for yes on the keyboard and then press f10 that displays a message which reads save and exit again pres y for yes and the computer restarts .Once it boots up should not for the bios password.

hope this helps you ...all the best

HP Pavilion ze2308wm laptop won't boot up


It could be the memory modules (RAM). Get the information from those RAM sticks (manufacturer) and replace them with new ones to see if that solves the issue, if not then maybe the hard drive, and if it's neither of those, I hate to say it, but it sounds like a bad motherboard :(

Booting problems with acer laptop - no operating system found??


Hi,

PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network.

It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located

If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
This can be caused if the hard drive is missing, unplugged or corrupt, or simply by not having the boot order configured correctly.

When you start your laptops, press F2 repeatedly until you enter the bios set up, navigate to the boot order and make sure that the hard drive (sometimes listed as HDD....) at the top of the list.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anymore help.

HP dv8000 crashed last year


It's trying to boot from the LAN. Don't ask me why but it's got it into it's little brain that it needs to boot from the LAN before anything else. When it can't get a valid operating system image over the network, it gives up and reboots with that error message.

Happily the solution is pretty simple. Go into the bios by tapping F10 when you first turn the power on. From there go to the System Configuration, and into the Boot Options. If you still don't have a viable operating system, it's necessary to set the CD Rom as the first boot device, so it will read a Windows disk. Makes sure CD-ROM Boot is set to Enabled and Network Adapter Boot is set to DISABLED. Then set the boot devices in the following order:

ATAPI CD/DVD Rom Drive
Notebook Hard Drive

- all the other options can be in any order, just make sure these two are at the top.

Pop in a Windows disk or your system restore disk and it should go through fine.
