Hi there,

I am having the same issue that you are... have completely reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled wwindows xp and windows vista.. the way that it was explained to me is that it is a hard drive failure.. either from the port that the harddrive plugs into or the actual hard drive is going bad... i just spoke with acre support about mine as well.. 11/13/2008...

hope this helps out alot...

Hi there,

Have you tried a System Restore? Try booting up into Safe Mode and running it from there. Do you know how to do that?

This is what mine says when I turn on Intel UNDI, PXE-2 . 1 (BUILD 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v1.0.0.5(01/22/09) Check cable connection..


You hard drive is missing from the system. Just does not recognize it.
Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

based the message that you encounter, it may pertain to boot priority or to BIOS configuration.

My recommendation is for you to access and reset the BIOS settings on your computer.

You get this kind of message when the laptop could not identify that there is a hard disk drive installed inside the laptop. Check your hard drive & make sure it is not dead.

I HAVE A ACER ASPIRE 5100 & WHEN I TURN IT ON THE SCREEN IS BLACK & WONT DO ANYTHING. THEN ABOUT ONCE EVERY SO OFTEN IT DOES BOOT UP BUT TELLS ME THAT I HAVE TO REINSTALL WINDOWS & WHEN I GOT...


You might have a bad AC adapter, bad Battery or bad motherboard.
1.) AC Adapter about $60
2.) Battery around $100.00
3.) Motherboard around ?

I would start with adapter first. If you see that you have to go to Number 2 or 3. You might to just get a whole Laptop, if this one is not still under warrenty.
