Question Boot Up Error Message

sponsored links

 
9 times out of ten when i which my pc on the following happens...

Normal bois loads then i see a message saying 'Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 3.0.03'

A few moments later more appears, saying...

'Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 3.0.03
Copyright (c) 1997-2000, Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Existing Intel PXE ROM

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER'

what does this mean and how can i get my computer to boot like normal ones

as i say on the odd occation it works, however it goes to the Windows XP boot screen (the one where you get the option for safemode, etc)

I pick the start a previous version that worked (or summit like that) and it loads. I think after about 5mins however it freezes. Really need all your help. i checked cables and everything seems to be in order! i thought it might have been the hard drive but i put a hard drive that was perfect in and got the same message!

Appreciate your help in advance

sounds like you have either configured the NIC to boot from or use the PXE function, for network installs of the OS, from bootup or the dos driver for the NIC, and hence PXE function, is corrupted, so you could try reinstalling.

so no, i won't go for the OS straight away. just the NIC driver to start with as the PXE should be linked to that. Other option is have a look in the bios as you may be able to turn off the PXE function in the bios.

unless that error is a red herring and it is purely because you have a cd or floppy in the drive at bootup
