  1. Hi, Im in real need of help :(
    My laptop suddenly froze last night so i simply switched it off by the button below the screen, however when i turned it back on it simply wont load. Its coming up with a message after the inital toshiba screen ( where you press F2 etc to go to the boot menu or something) and its saying
    " Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)
    Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

    For Realtek RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.05 (071227)
    PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
    PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM.
    No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key "

    Does that boot disk mean the diskj that my laptop came with when i bought it?..
    I really hope you can help , Im worried that ive lost al my files etc, which would be awful as im one who hasnt got round to backing them up yet. Typical lol.
    many thanks

    Yes it is about your HDD; to start with, go into BIOS, and see whether it is detecting the HDD correctly.
