Having problems with your Gateway 700 XL PC Desktop ?

Boot failure: System Halted

\015 From what I have seen online, my problem may be common. Before I give you the background, I give you what I see when I turn on my computer.PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. Boot Failure: System HaltedI have checked around online, and like I said before, this problem seemed common. I tried most of the solutions I saw online, and none of them worked. I was playing an old game, Command and Conquer red alert in windows 95 mode, and it seemed like my computer just got over worked and it froze up. When I turned it on I got what you see above. Now I don't know a lot about computers, but I got onto BIOS and have seen no network boots to deal with. I have never had any problems with this computer before and am not sure what to do. Thanks a lot for any help, obviously keeping it as easy to understand would be better.\015
