    Hi,

    I have turned my laptop on after an update and it won't load up,
    At first it said to launch startup repair or start normally,

    I chose start up repair but it didn't complete the repair.
    It now comes up with a repetitive screen with PXE-E63: media test failure, check cable
    PXE-MOF: exiting PXE ROM

    I have tried googling the answer and going into the BIOS menu and to the boot section but I can't seem to change anything to work.

    There is and exclamation mark in front of what I think is my hard drive on the screen

    !HDD1/SSD1 TOSHIBA MK2555GSX-(S2)
    CD/DVD HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT20N-(S4)
    FDD
    LAN

    I DON't have anything in the disc drive and I don't have a recovery disc.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanx

    Leon

    Hi

    For me it looks like HDD malfunction and therefore the BIOS cannot find an bootable device and switches to the last possible bootable option which is LAN.

    The exclamation mark in front of the HDD indicates that there is a problem with the HDD… therefore I think that you would need to replace the HDD and will need to install the system again.



    PS: What notebook do you have exactly?
