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.

A "media test failure, check cable" means your hard disk failed. The bios can not locate the boot sector of the hard disk to begin loading the operating system.
"Operating system not found" means windows can't load because the Bios can not find the operating system (because the hard disk failed).

This is pretty much an unrecoverable error in terms of fast fixes. You can take the hard disk to a data recovery service if you need to retrieve important data or files.

The first bit with the MAC address is there because it's trying to boot from LAN and it is exiting because no IP address is assigned to it by the DHCP. If your laptop is connected to a network, you can use this feature to image the laptop across the network with an imaging software like Norton Ghost.

The last bit, "Operating System Not found" means that you do not have Windows or any other operating system installed on your laptop. At this point, you can either reinstall your operating system or use the recovery disc that came with the laptop to restore it back to it's factory settings.

This is showing because the computer is not seeing the hard drive that contains the operating system. In some cases this is because the hard drive has come dislodged from the interface on the motherboard. Dells are good for this because the hard drive slides into the side of some models. Try reseating the hard drive and reboot. Your worse case scenario is that your hard drive has failed. The reason you are seeing the PXE-MOF etc. is that the laptop ias now looking for a network hard drive to boot from. It can't find the intenal hard drive so it is searching for other means to boot.

Pxe mof exiting pfe rom problems on acer laptop operating system not found.please assist cannot boot up


Go into the Bios and disable LAN boot.. usualy hit f2 or del as soon as it is booting up.

If this computer was working before.. then it cannot find the hard drive or anything to boot from and has gone to another place to try to boot.

Best wishes..
