Hi Bill,

Try this:

Turn on the laptop and start pressing f12 key.. it will show you the boot menu, select your CD/DVD drive and press enter. If it still does not boot then please try with another bootable CD as the CD might not be working.

Let me know if you need any further help.

Regards
Anand

The CD may not be bootable... use an original CD, not a copy, even it it works on other computers.
Your laser lens may be dirty and can't read / track correctly.

Try compressed air if you can't locate an original CD, or if the CD is original...

Errors PXE-E61 and PXE-M0F


Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (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.

Problem with acer laptop. My laptop stopped booting after restart. I just moved my laptop from bed to floor . while in power on the program just crash not responding, then came a blue screen and said...


Click the power button and watch the screen to see which key it says to press to get into the Bios or System Setup. Change the boot order or boot sequence. It looks like it is set to boot from a Network or LAN first. You want to boot from the hard drive 1st or the cd drive 1st and the hard drive 2nd. This will change it permanently. Then reboot.

There might also be an option to change it temporarily when you boot the system. Just watch the screen and see if it shows you which key to press to change the boot order or boot sequence. It is only effective for this one boot.

Upon booting I get this error. for realtek


PXE means Pre-Boot Execution Environment. You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error.

You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system?

Satellite not wanting to boot.... need help


Disconnect any USB or other external drives or network cables connections

Boot to your BIOS (F2) menu and make sure the boot sequence is set to boot first on HD or CD ROM (whichever you prefer).

Error message on my broadcom


PXE errors (Also known as Pixie errors) occurs when the system bios setup is configured to attempt to boot to the network card (an option used in some networks to load system images)

You can boot to the system setup (F2 at Dell screen) and make sure the HDD is 1st in the boot sequence and *** if there is a setting for the network card to turn off PXE (Usually they the following options (ON, OFF, ON W/PXE, select the ON option)

If the system is failing to boot to the hard drive at all, this can be a sympton of a failing hard disk drive. You can try and confirm this by booting to the HDD diagnostic on the F12 on time boot menu or boot to the Dell Resource CD and run diags from it. If the HDD fails diagnostics, it definitely needs to be replaced. If the diags pass, it is no guarantee that the drive is good though, just an indication that no fault was found.

Acer aspire 3515 reboot


Hopefully, though, there's just some craziness going on with the Boot

....suggests that the error messages you are seeing are from a failed
attempt to boot from a network source.

Check the boot order in your BIOS to insure that the hard drive is
fairly high in the list. Generally, I have it something like this:

(1) Floppy Drive
(2) CD-ROM
(3) Hard Drive

If you do this, will it boot from the hard drive?

Will it boot from a bootable CD?
