Hey guys, I got a weird message on my desktop today on Boot-up

Novell Netware Ready Firmware v1.00 (940810)
© Copyright 1991 - 1994 Novell, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Intel ® PRO/1000 Gigabit Adapter v1.21 (030602)
Copyright 2001-2003, Intel Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

Press HOME key to abort RPL
LAN Adapter failed the media test.
Please check the cable and reboot the system.
PXE-MOF : Exiting Intel Boot agent.
1962: No operating system found. Press F1 to repeat boot sequence.

(Pressing HOME does nothing, and this screen keeps refreshing)

My computer was working fine just until yesterday and this message came up today when i turned it on,
Do you have any suggestion as to what I can do to fix this?

Sometimes...when the CMOS battery is weakening, it impacts the BIOS settings. They can be goofy, they can return to default settings. On some systems the default setting may be via network, which is what appears to be the case with your system (if I'm right about the CMOS battery).

You can try going into the BIOS and checking the boot options and ensuring that the boot drive is the first option. But, if they changed once without user manipulation...they may change again.

I would try a new CMOS battery.

If the current BIOS settings call for the system to boot from the hard drive...then we have a different situation.
