Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

Can't boot my Acer Aspire One

\015 My brand-new Aspire One powers on just fine. I get the initial Acer screen, and then a black screen with the following text:Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 002)Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel CorporationFor Realtek RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.09 (080602)PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cablePXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any keyWhat exactly does this mean? WHAT boot disk? I've tried every "solution" I can find online. The user manual is absolutely useless. Can anyone help???\015

Answers :

"Booting" is the process of starting up the computer's operating system (Windows). Settings in the mainboard memory (the BIOS) give the order in which devices are searched for the operating system. The usual order is hard drive first, then the CD drive, and finally over a network.

That clear-as-mud message means the mainboard tried to boot over a network connection and it didn't work. It's telling you to check your network cable or to put in a CD it can boot from.

There are two reasons this is happening. Either the system's BIOS settings have "network" as the first boot device, or (more likely) the operating system wasn't found on the hard drive and the BIOS went looking for a network connection. If the computer used to boot normally and you didn't change the BIOS settings, then something has happened to the hard drive to make it unbootable.

You can check the BIOS settings by pressing the "DELETE" key when you\015\012turn the computer on and the Acer logo screen appears. This starts the BIOS setup mode. If the boot order is correct with network boot as the last choice, there is a hardware cause. You might have picked up a virus or worm which has corrupted the disk. The hard drive or the mainboard may have gone bad.

If you have a recovery CD or DVD set, you can try restoring your system. You say it's brand-new, so you might try taking the computer back to the retailer to see if their technical support people can help. Or you can contact Acer to set up service for the computer.

Hope this helps you understand what's happening and that you get the trouble straightened out quickly!
