Please help! I'm having serious problems with my laptop and the stupid technical support line is closed!
I have a Compaq Presario Notebook R3200 and have had no problems with it until today.
I turned it on, got the Compaq logo as usual; and then an error message came up on a black background that reads;
Realtek Fast Ethernet Controller V2.13
PXE-E61 Media test failure; check cable
PXE-MOF Exiting PXE ROM.
This screen loads over and over again.
I have tried disabling the network adaptor in BIOS setup in the boot setup order section but all that happens after that is I get the Compaq logo and then a black screen with a flashing white cursor.
I have no idea how this has happened. The only thing that has been changed on my laptop is that it has recently acquired a wireless network connection; as we have recently got broadband on the main desktop computer.
