It sounds like it cannot see the hard drive to boot from, or it is not trying to
boot from the hard drive.

You will have to go into your BIOS to check some things. Check the boot order.
Remove any reference to "LAN boot ", or at the very least, make it last on the list.
Make sure the hard drive is one of the choices. A good booting order is:
Optical drive (CD or DVD), Floppy, Hard Drive, and LAN would be last if you can't
remove it completely.

Now that you are in the BIOS, make sure that it recognizes the hard drive. Perhaps
BIOS can't see it because of bad connection, or bad cable, or some other reason,
such as hard drive itself going bad.

Check and clean the connections to the cables and hard drive.

Check to see if there are any upgrades for the BIOS available from the manufacturer.

Let us know if any of these ideas help.

How to you back up files on cisnet computer if system is not operating


CMOS settings could be set at fault so go check bios settings by tapping f8 or del or F2 .choose either cd or hd 0 as first start up or reset to default then press f10 to save and restart.if it still causes problems it could be boot sector of hard drive or a loose cable .its down to some detective work.if it's not a hardware issue I.e. Corrupt bad sectored drive , faulty cables ...then it has to be software issues.
Sometimes if you leave memory card in a slot or you may have left a disc in one of your drives.this can sometimes be the cause
if none of the above then something is corrupting startup which means boot sector root kit problems

You can solve this problem by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Also remember to uninstall and reinstall updated drivers for your devices. Thanks

Prablon may loptop pxe-mof exiting broadcom pxe rom .broadcom undi pxe-2.1 v14.0.8


I think you hard drives failed. When the hard drive fails, the boot tries to find another way to boot up, so if the boot sequence lan is enabled, it will try to boot from the lan port (in your case broadcom pxe), when it can't boot from here either, it exits (exiting broadcom pxe). Replace your hard drive and re-install windows.

When I start my lap top, it shows the windows sign and then keeps repeating the above including: PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM PXE-E61 Media test failure: Check cable


Your laptop is trying to boot from a network source and returns an error because it can't find it. This boot method is usually used to install an operating system on many computers at the same time (so you don't have to run around with your installation CD.)

You have to get into your BIOS and change the boot order to hard drive or CD. You didn't mention which laptop you are using, so you might have to check your manual. Usually permanently pressing or constantly tapping the Del, F2 or F12 key while booting before the Windows logo appears gets you there.
The key you have to press depends on the manufacturer of your laptop. Try to search for the term "boot into bios on sony vaio", or whatever your laptop manufacturer/model is.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Computer freezes and shows a fault screen


Remove all the physical components of your computer and have it clean. You can use a brush or a blower and then reinstall your computer operating system. If it is windows xp then you will be needing the software for windows xp installation and then support cd for your motherboard and all support drivers.

Your Acer is trying to boot from Network and not hard drive.

You will have to go into the set-up utility(BIOS) and de-select network as a boot option.
