That means your computer trying to boot from LAN port. Go bios and change the settings of PXE boot to disable and make Hard disk as first boot device. Save the settings and restart your pc. It will work

Either your hard drive has died or your computer is not seeing the hard drive. The broadcom pxeROM message is the laptop attempting to boot from a network drive if its available, which it isnt. You need to go into the bios and check that your computer is actually listing you have a hard drive. If its not showing in the bios then your hard drive will probably need replacing

From the description it is the hard drive, remove hardware and reseat back into position, sometimes this will restart the hard drive, if no change chances are you will need it replaced, but I would suggest getting it tested first.

A "media test failure, check cable" means your hard disk failed. The bios can not locate the boot sector of the hard disk to begin loading the operating system.
"Operating system not found" means windows can't load because the Bios can not find the operating system (because the hard disk failed).

This is pretty much an unrecoverable error in terms of fast fixes. You can take the hard disk to a data recovery service if you need to retrieve important data or files.

Hi, When I turn on my Laptop - Acer Aspire 5536, the following writing appears; Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11 .4.1 Copyright (C) 2000-2008 Broadcom Corporation Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel...


usually, this message means that when your computer is booting it is trying get the operating system files from a network location (shared folder)

what you need to do is to make sure your BIOS is not set to boot from network.

1. when the computer starts, there is a message like "to enter BIOS press Esc" or any other key like F2 or F10
2. in the BIOs settings, make sure the order of the boot is: DVD/CD then hard disk. make sure there is no Network booting in the list

If you have a BOOT CD then try to boot and go to windows.
Or you can use windows setup CD but go for repair only.
For the future it is a good idea to INSTALL WINDOWS in a USB mini drive and boot the computer from USB. You have to go to BIOS and set USB default drive.
It is a good idea to clone your HD in a CD.

I have Dell Studio 1555, Vista but later intalled XP on drive D, I have problem my CD/DVD drive does not read the Data, CD does not revolve in high speed make the tak tak sound as it try to read bit after...


Your message indicates that Pxe Boot is enabled (boot from lan card), go to bios settings and from the list of first boot options, please select the hard disk (hdd) or Cd-rom as the first boot device, reboot your system and check whether this helps or not.
It is also necessary to disconnect and reconnect your dvd/cd rom's power cable and data cable.
If you don't know how to do, then just reset the bios settings to "load default" ...
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

This is showing because the computer is not seeing the hard drive that contains the operating system. In some cases this is because the hard drive has come dislodged from the interface on the motherboard. Dells are good for this because the hard drive slides into the side of some models. Try reseating the hard drive and reboot. Your worse case scenario is that your hard drive has failed. The reason you are seeing the PXE-MOF etc. is that the laptop ias now looking for a network hard drive to boot from. It can't find the intenal hard drive so it is searching for other means to boot.

My acer aspire 5315 is stuck on dis screen, n I don't have a reco


Hello my friend, regarding on your problem it is clearly that your system cannot boot from its kernel part of the Operating system. It is experiencing a software corruption or corrupted files of your operating system. The only solution you can get is to re install your operating system to replace and repair any damage files in your operating system.

Thanks

Receiving PXE-E61 media test failure/PXE-M0F exiting intel PXE RO


If you get this error in a black screen before windows xp can boot up....
CLIENT MAC ADDR: xxxxxxx GUID: xxxxxxxxxx
PXE-E53: no boot filename recived
PXE-MOF: exiting intel PXE Rom
Your network card's settings in bios have somehow been changed. PXE means Pre-Execution Enviroment. In other words, it allows your network card to connect to a network server to pull operating system images off the network and other files without having an operating system installed.

The Fix,
Go into BIOS press F2 or F12 whatever your PC's screen at bootup says. In Bios, reset your bios settings to the default bios settings, or original settings. This fixed my problem with the above error. Nothing else fixed it. Windows Recovery cd will not fix it, because you cannot boot windows if this error is still occuring, Your network card will keep prompting DHCP to search for a network.
Its a bios function not a windows function.

New hard drive, getting PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable


Broadcom is a maker of Network cards and PXE is a generic name for Network Boot Bios .. have you set your Laptop to boot from a network before CD ?? (go into BIOS @ power on and set CD first, hard disk second)

If not, then it can't see any other bootable device so ends up trying the network as a 'last resort' ...
