As soon as my computer boots up I get the following that continues to rewrite itself. This started when I was copying document folders to a thumbdrive to move the info to another computer. A blue screen originally come up but the black screen come up with the info within a minute of the blue screen. ANY info? The info on the black screen that repeats itself; First line reads "For Realtec RTL8111B/8168B Gigabit Ethernet Controller v2.02 (060301)" Second line reads "PXE-E61 : Media Test Failure, check cable" Third line reads "PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM".

Hi:
That sort of message comes up when your computer is unable to boot to the hard drive. Those messages basically mean that it is trying to boot from a network, (which it isn't hooked upt to). Your hard drive could have failed, or your boot sequence could have been inadvertently changed too.
First, make sure your thumb drive is not installed in the laptop, as this can cause the problem too.


You can check your boot sequence by rebooting your computer, and entering the BIOS, usually by hitting F1 or F2 on start up. Tab over to the Boot section, and see what the boot order is: Usually it should be: CDROM drive, Then Hard drive, then removeable drives.

If this is ok, check and make sure that your hard drive is showing up in the BIOS on the main page too.
If not, it might be bad....
Hope this helps!

The procedure is actually correct. but if your computer is fast you may miss it. try this, upon turning the computer on, start pressing the CTRL+F11 immediately. if you have reformated your HDD then most likely you've lost the recovery partition for the PC Restoration.

Do you have any CD in the tray, first would be to remove the disc if present as boot from CD would be first option in BIOS.
Get into the BIOS by pressing the appropriate key some systems it is the DEL key or F2. In bios select Advanced Bios Features.

Select "Bootable add in cards" with keyboard and keep pressing + until it is in the first location.

Set first boot device as Hard Disk and then save and exit BIOS.
F10 is shortcut to do this.

If you need to boot from CD next time just change first boot device to CDROM.

Get your windows restore cd (it's probably in your box) and boot to it. You may need to enter the boot selection menu and select "Boot from CD-ROM drive". It should then prompt you to press any key to boot from the cd, which you should do. Just follow the prompts, wait for the disc to load, and then press "r" for recovery when you are prompted.

The system folder does not delete itself, so run a virus scan as soon as you restore your computer.

Start up BIOS and perhaps change default boot drive to your hard drive because i think your default boot up device is the dvd drive.... try to put that last on the list... F2 should get you to BIOS if not try F8 Just keep tapping right at beginning of startup before the logo screen shows. Once in BIOS go to boot menu and change default device :) Hope that works for you

Take the battery out, leave it unplugged for a day or so... usually resets the bios for me. Sometimes though, you might have to manually unplug the cmos battery as well, that involves opening the system.

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop will not boot up.


Pressing the f8 key doesn't work either? This should boot the laptop to safe mode, if it doesn't then check the memory cards before you do anything else, try to get somebody with the same type of memory card to lend it to you. If that doesn't work, then your HDD is corrupted, and to re-install Windows.
