Question about Acer Aspire One D250 (99802378332) Netbook
The PXE ROM is part of your system's network interface controller. It is being entered on your system's startup to look for a bootable image on a physical network connection and if found, to boot from that image. If there is no network cable connection to your system or if there is but no bootable device is found on that connection, the result is the error message that you got. As to why your system is entering the PXE ROM can be explained by looking at your system's Setup Utility,,,
Press F2 while powering up to enter the Setup Utility and use the cursor control keys to go to the Boot tab which then shows the Boot priority order. The default order is as follows...
3. USB FDD
4. USB HDD
5. Network Boot : LEGACY PCI DEVICE
6. USB CDROM
Your system's internal hard disk drive should be listed beside IDE0 and it will be accessed first to look for a boot record. If the drive fails to boot, the next devices in the list will be accessed accordingly until either a bootable device is found or the last item which is USB CDROM. If a USB CDROM is plugged in on one of the system's USB ports, it will be checked for a bootable record and if not found or no CDROM is plugged in, then the system displays the last part of the message -- insert boot disk and press any key.
Press F12 while powering up enters the Boot Menu which has the Boot Option Menu. This menu should show by default the following...
1. IDE 0: (the name/type information for your system's internal hard disk drive
2. Network Boot: LEGACY PCI DEVICE
If there is no hard disk drive information shown beside IDE 0, then the possibilities are that
1. there is no internal hard drive present
2. there is a hard drive but it has failed
If there is hard disk drive information and pressing enter to select it does not result in an operating system startup, then the drive's startup partition has been wiped and so it has no bootable image.
If there seems to be an internal hard drive present but it has no bootable image, you may attempt recovery from the installation images in the hidden partition. The recovery allows restoration of...
1. operating system to factory defaults
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)
Press Alt and F10 keys together while powering up and the Acer logo is showing to enter Acer's eRecovery Management. Follow the instructions to do the recovery which will erase all user data and restore the operating system to its factory default when you purchased the netbook.

SOURCE: My computer fell
Usually, your computer tries to "boot" from multiple sources:
1. 3.5" diskette drive, if installed, functional, and a boot-diskette is inserted
2. CD-ROM drive, if installed, functional, and a boot-CD (such as the Windows XP CD-ROM) is inserted
3. disk-drive, if installed, functional, and the "boot" record can be read from the disk-drive
4. from the Ethernet network, via a "networked boot server"
So, "check cable" means that either no Ethernet cable is connected to the computer, or that the "networked boot server" is not installed, or the boot-server did not reply.
What this means is that your disk-drive was damaged by the fall, and the "boot" information cannot be read from the disk-drive.
So, you need to replace the disk-drive.
