Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Realtek rtl8139 (X)/8130/810X PCI FAST ETHERNET CONTROLER V2.13 020326. PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILED CK CABLE AND PXE-MOF EXITING FLASHING CANNOT DO A RESET WITH F9


Answers :

Hello khulsey60,

The above message is mainly informational and doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. The acronym 'PXE' stands for Preboot Execution Environment. It's an environment to bootstrap computers using a network interface card. Usually the reboot is done by a remote computer on a LAN (Local rea Network). The Realtek NIC (Network Interface Card) somehow expected a PXE boot to be taking place when the computer was restarting. One solution is to restart the computer and go to the boot menu (F2 on some systems) and choose to boot from the master drive.

*Here's a link to a good article explaining what PXE is: http://www.search.com/reference/Preboot_Execution_Environment

Have a great day,
