Ok well I resently helped my friend build his PC. Dont know what we did but now when he starts it up he gets the error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. His PC is the same as mine(check sig) except he has a 64 3500+ and a GeForce 5700LE PCI version, after checking multiple websites I found that you have to disable the PXE from the BIOS. How do I go about doing this?


Thanks in advance.

PXE it an option in your Boot order in the BIOS.

Defined by Webopedia...

Short for Pre-Boot Execution Environment. Pronounced pixie, PXE is one of the components of Intel's WfM specification. It allows a workstation to boot from a server on a network prior to booting the operating system on the local hard drive. A PXE-enabled workstation connects its NIC to the LAN via a jumper, which keeps the workstation connected to the network even when the power is off. Because a network administrator does not have to physically visit the specific workstation and manually boot it, operating systems and other software, such as diagnostic programs, can be loaded onto the device from a server over the network.

PXE is a mandatory element of the WfM specification. To be considered compliant, the PXE must be supported by the computer's BIOS and its NIC.

I don't know your computer but on my Dells it is in the boot order


CD
Floppy
Hard drive
PXE

I am able to remove it from the boot order by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl + ins.
It will be in the BIOS since it is a rom controlled on the motherboard.
