I turned on my presario 2500 and it booted normally. But it takes a long time before it responds to mouse click. So I restarted it. After restarting, it won't boot xp anymore. i tried reading the error message but the flash is too quick for me to read. it kept restarting. so i reformatted. it also took a long time for me to reformat cause the pc responded too slow. now, without anythng in it but the o.s., it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to start up. what should i do?

This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

click f5 before xp starts to load. choose halt on error and record code. google that code. most often it is a bios error after a new install (memory...etc.) sometimes you can boot into safe mode to undo a recent change. if all else fails reinstall...could be bad hard drive boot sector also.....check code first
Your disk-drive has failed.
So, your computer tried to boot itself over the Ethernet network,
by "broadcasting" a request for booting. When either the network-cable was _NOT_ connected, or when _NO_ computer responded to the "broadcast" message, you get "PXE: media failure".
Take your computer to a qualified technician,
to remove the "dead" disk-drive,
to replace the disk-drive,
and to reinstall Windows.
