Question about Dell Inspiron 4000 Notebook
Getting error message Intel UNDI PXE-2.0 (build 083) check cabel connection PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM Operating system not found Where do I check to see if the hard drive is connected properly?

This error comes up if the computer is not able to detect the hard drive. Power off the computer. Power it back on and tap the number 2 key 4 - 5 times at the Dell logo screen. This will take you to the system setp screen. Check if you see any thing listed next to solid state drive. If you dont see any thing try reseating the hard drive. Here are the steps to reseat the hard drive..
If you see an entry next to the solid state drive. You'll need to reinstall windows on the computer. If you have been shipped XP you will need an external CD drive to reinstall windows. If the system was sen with ubantu try to download it to a usb drive and boot off it.
Rate if useful.

The problem your having could be the operating system is damange or the hard drive failed. Try to boot from a Windows XP or Vista CD to see if the drive is recognized.

hello, sounds like bad hard drive. here is what you can try, go in to BIOS and reset it factory default save and exit, let the system start again go back in BIOS and check to see if you see your hard drive there, also this time disable Boot from Network option. seeif your system actually starts up... or you get "no operating system found", if you saw the HDD in BIOS and get no operating system found, you can try reinstalling windows.
if you still media test failure and it loops, you need a new hard drive.
let me know if it helps...

SOURCE: upon start up my Dell
You computer is trying to boot from the LAN port (Ethernet).
Go into the BIOS by pressing either the F2 or the Del key. Check and make sure the hard drive is recognised by the system as with it saying "Operating system not found" does not sound good and could mean a hardware failure.
If it is seen by the BIOS check the boot order, change it to the HDD as the first boot device.
