PXE is a common term when a computer is trying to do what is called a network boot. you probably have a bad hard drive and the computer sees there is no harddrive and is trying to boot from a pxe server off of a network.

It is trying to bbot up using network boot because it cannot find OS on the hard drive, you can turn off the network in the BIOS setup page, but more likely you have problem with the hard drive or the OS is corrupted.

See this on-line thread from other users. I'd be leary about the posts that advocated hitting the laptop...
Portable computers can suffer from bad connections easily, so the first thing you should check are that all cables and other connections are tight and seated firmly.
