I think your boot record (Master Boot Record) is damaged and this can come from Windows just trashing itself as it is prone to do, or the hard drive has failed. That message is generated by the BIOS.

Keep getting the following message when I turn on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop: PXE-E61: Media test faulire, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM Operating System not found


PXE bootup means the computer does not boot up from an operating system installed on a hard disk drive. PXE bootup uses a server on a network to boot up the computer.

It will not start without being connected the network that it was programmed to run on

I'm assuming you have run the Operating System ie Full XP disc. Really depends what you mean by 'won't start up properly'. Sounds like it could be your operating system has not installed correctly. You need to try formatting and reinstalling it - sometimes when the operating system is installed it drops a file or two.

Reboot to its factory settings


do you mean reload the operating system ?
if yes and if you didn't delete the recovery partition in your harddrive, you can press alt+f10 during boot, it will guide you to the reload operating system.
