When Toshiba Satellite c655d-s5200 (serial #:YB114057Q) is powered on this pops up

"Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083)
Copyright © 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v2.0.2.7(11/02/10)
Check cable connection!
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

A Microsoft office 2010 brief CD ROM is in the diak drive and underneath is a Windows 7 Home Prem OA stiker with a OEM product key and other numbers.
After discovering that I then restarted it, pressed F2 and on the InsydeH20 Setup Utility page I hit F9 to default the setup but it shows the same message.

Im not that familiar with PC internal hardware so Idk the cause of this and Im not the original owner so if possible how can I solve this problem without having to replace a part or using a CD ROM or disk basically nt having to spend money for it to start up and work correctly.

The laptop is trying to boot in Pxe/network boot mode. Thats a BIOS setting where the machine lookups for boot info from a network drive/server which you dont have. When restarting it open the BIOS setup(F2) and find the boot options and in the boot sequence make sure that your hard drive is in the list and ahead of the onboard nic/network adapter/ethernet. If you see an option for network boot just disable that and that should fix the issue. Alter alternatively depending on the manufacturer you may be able to open up a boot menu where you can select the boot device from a list of options, once again look for and pick the hard drive or whatever device you want to boot from if you have a CD or USB.

Someone else can probably explain that more clearly but if the hdd is okay its a relatively simple fix

Agreed...message indicates that system is trying a network boot.  If Windows is installed on a hard drive and the system is set to boot from a network...the message reflected will appear.


Ensure that the BIOS boot option is for the hard drive on which Windows is installed.


Other causes for this could be a failing CMOS battery or a failing hard drive.
