Seems your file system was corrupted. try to boot your laptop through cd..installation would show the partition details. here just check all partition are in gud file system. if it shows like "unknown" u need to format the partition. if u have any important data in that partition just connect that hdd as a secondary disk and try to copy the data's

Welcome to Fixya. You can use the 2 methods below to try to fix the issue
Method 1 - Update BIOS Firstly, if you can get past the error and actually boot into the OS, then you want to try and download the latest version of the BIOS. If you can't get past the error, make sure you try to load the computer in Safe Mode and see if the OS loads.
Another thing you can try is to enter the Setup and disable the wireless component on the laptop. Then try to restart the computer and see if you can get past the "unsupported wireless network device" error.
If so, go to the HP update site ( and type in the model number for your HP laptop. Download the latest version of the BIOS and install it!
Method 2 - Reset the BIOS If that doesn't work, you'll have to try resetting the BIOS. In order to do this, you have to restart the HP computer and then press the F10 key while the HP logo is showing. Press it a couple of times during the initial boot up if you can't get in immediately.
Now go to the Exit menu and select Load Setup Defaults. Finally choose Exit saving changes.
After resetting the BIOS, you'll have to perform an OS repair install. This is a pretty long guide in itself, so I'll direct you to a great post that walks through each step in performing the repair install. Not that it will NOT delete any of your data or programs.
Just let me know what happen. Thanks

I want to format my laptop but, when I power up my laptop it directly goes to windows xp screen, please support me

If you dont know how...this is the last thing you should be doing
assuming that you realize formatting you had disk will result in a laptop without an OS (ie windows) just an error saying "invalid system disk"
go to dos by typing CMD into the run command
diskpart [enter] select disk 0 [enter] select partition 1 [enter] format [enter]

For Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCIE Ethernet Controller v1.0.0.9 2008/04/25) Check Cable connection! PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert bot disk and press any key

hfc_32 - Hi, your system is telling you that it can't find a boot device (Your hard drive) and is trying to boot from a network instead (PXE) which doesn't exist.

Either something is wrong with your hard disk or somehow the boot device got changed in your system's BIOS.

You didn't say anything about your computer (laptop, desktop. Mac or PC?). There are a few things you should try (if you're comfortable doing it).

The easiest thing to try is to get the CD/DVD of your operating system and place it in the optical drive (with the error you described on the screen) power it down and then in turn it back on. It should boot from the OS disc and let you know if it finds your hard disk. You didn't specify your OS so we can't go any further there. Hopefully it will find your hard drive. Then you'll know that it didn't die.

If the disc doesn't see the hard drive and your PC is a desktop system (don't do any of this with a laptop) open the case and make sure the power and data cables are securely connected. Try booting again. The hard drive will be in a cage type holder usually at the front of the system.

Lastly, if the system still doesn't boot look in your system manual and find out how to get into the system BIOS. Follow the instructions and go to the Boot section and see if you hard disk is listed and if so make sure it is listed as the FIRST boot device.

To try to get into the BIOS if you don't have the manual try hitting (on separate boot attempts) at the beginning of the boot process (when you first see the white text on black boot screen just after you've applied power) first the key, then if that doesn't work, next try the key, then the key and finally try hitting the key.

Good Luck and Thank You for using 'Fix Ya'

Hi, im randy my laptop run in system bios and i do f12 to boots but its still not fix

hello randy, first i need to know what BIOS do you have?
for commonly error, try to set boot option from BIOS. if u can go to bios main screen then there will be tab with name 'BIOS'. go to that tab, there will be list for booting configuration. set 1st bootable device to your harddisk. after that go to the 'exit' tab. choose save and exit. the configuration will be save and now your laptop will be booting from harddisk first from the start.

hope this help.. regard, riyan.

I have brother MFC-7420 printer which was working fine on my mac pc, now all of a sudden it has stopped printing or scanning and says printer offline

Try a new data cable. Make sure there are no error messages on the printer itself and that it is on.

If you are using a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Check that a known working device works in the ports. Try uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it. The drivers are available here: . Select your OS, then language and click Search.

Check the device status and the USB status. (I know how to do this in Windows but forget the Mac specifics.)

I hope this helps.

Your hard drive is not being recognised by your computer, so therefore it will not try to boot from it.

The PXE message you can ignore, it's the computer trying ot boot from the network card (because it can't find the hard drive)

You didn't memntion if this is a desktop or a laptop so..

  1. Remove the power cable
  2. Remove the side panel to the case
  3. Unplug the hard drive connectors - There are 2 types in a desktop, IDE has a power cable with a big white plug on it 4 wires, and an IDE cable, flat and wide.
  4. Plug them back in, they willonly go one way then check the other end of the IDE cable
  5. Attach the power cord and try again (leave the side panel off for now)
2 smaller connectors One thin cable (can be any colour but normally red) and one power cable with a thin black connector.Just give these a push back towards the drive to make sure they are secure, do not remove them.

Try to start and see what happens.

It is possible that your hard drive has failed, though they normally start to cause problems before they go.

These can be anywhere in laptops, but normally under one side you will find a panel that when opened will reveal the hard drive. Dell laptops normally put them in the side of the laptop and there is an access panel to be removed there as well.

If you have a laptop, then post back the model number togive a clearer idea of where it will be before you pull the whole thing apart =)

Try that and see what happens. Post back results please.
