Re: My system does not boot properly
This is common when there are corrupted boot files on your HDD or your HDD has failed. You need to boot to a windows CD and repair your startup files.
Alternatively you can reformat to a fresh windows install but you will lose all
of your data. If the previous steps fail then it looks like you may need to replace your HDD. Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com

You hard drive is missing from the system. Just does not recognize it.
the hard drive and reseat (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
As soon as you power on your PC, start pressing the F2 key. This should bring up the BIOS (Basic Input Output Systems) screen. Make sure your Hard Drive is listed in the Boot order. Usually a CD drive is listed first, then the Hard Drive as a second boot device. If you do not see the Hard Drive listed, then it probably is bad and needs replacing. If it is listed correctly in the boot order, your Operating System has crashed, and you will need the recovery disks or the instalation disk for your Operating System (XP, Win7,etc.)
Your machine is trying to boot off a network (PXE). Either you stole it from work, or the bios is not set up right and / or the hard disc is either no good or the cable is disconnected from it. The boot sequence in BIOS should tell it to not boot from the network first, unless it's on a corporate network. It should say boot from the hard drive first. If it's set to do that and it fails, then your hard drive is probably bad. Dropping a laptop on the ground will do that; did you loan it out, recently???
From your explanation, it looks like the laptop is trying to boot from a network source. Restart your computer and press F2 or Del when booting to go into the system BIOS. In the BIOS, locate the boot order, or boot sequence. There should be Booting devices listed in a numerical order, so what you have to do is, read the instruction at the bottom of the page (still in the BIOS) to see what keys to press in order to change the booting order. (Usually its (- or +) or (Page up and Page down) or anything like that...
Make sure that when you change the boot order in the BIOS, your Hard disk should be the first one. This will tell the computer to boot from your Hard disk and not from the network source... try that, it should solve you out of that problem
This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty. To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.
