Just as the topic says, When I boot my Desktop up I get this message (minus the quotes);

"Intel® Boot Agent FE v4. 1.17
Copyright © 1997-2004, Intel Corporation

Intel ® Boot Agent PXE Base Code (PXE-2.1 build 084)
Copyright © 1997-2004, Intel Corporation

CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 13 20 BD EE 09 GUID: 7CC27956 4338 11DA 9A81 0013200B4F9E
PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent."

My desktop is a Windows XP Home Edition made by Gateway.

Please help. Before my mom does something to make it worse.

Such messages typically appear...when the system is trying to do a network boot.

That may happen because the CMOS battery needs to be replaced...in some systems, such will make the system return to default boot options.

I would go into the BIOS and see what the first boot device is...if it's not the hard drive, try to change it and save the changes...then try to boot.

If the change doesn't hold or cannot be accomplished...I would replace the CMOS battery.
