Dear Sir/Madame:

I'm attempting to fix a friend's computer. It refuses to boot on startup. Initially, it would load past the manufacturer screen and then display the following error message:

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)
Copyright © 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

For Atheros PCIE Eithernet Controller v1.0.0.13(2008/10/15)

Check cable connection..!
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key
_


After looking this up, I fiddled with the BIOS and disabled network bootup. However, now the computer simply displays the "no bootable device" message. And since there's no disk drive, there's no boot disk either. When my friend told me what it was doing, I really hoped that I'd be able to get it to boot in Safe Mode, but now I suspect that mayhap the hard drive is shot.

Suggestions?

Replace the battery on the motherboard and then make sure the hd is the first device in boot order in the bios

I don't think it's the battery: the clock is still in time.

It's up to you, but my suggestion remains the same. The problem you describe is symptomatic of a dying battery.
