today my nephew was playing sims 2 and while he was playing he hit the shelf the tower was fell less than 2 feet and not very hard since the cords slowed its fall...
now when i go to restart it i get this errors:

0162 configuration error
no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were recieved

im not sure what has happened or what I need to do now.
I was reading online and it said run setup but not sure what that meant.

Run setup probably means run Windows setup. But i think i may know what is wrong. Can you check the hard disk IDE cable, make sure both connections at either end of the cable are securely fixed into their sockets

ok..I tried to check all the cables but couldnt find any loose ones.

I restarted the computer and when it comes up with those same errors...

it says:
Press f1 to setup...f2 to resume
*error boot sequence will be taken if no selection is made

I end up pushing f2...and then the computer loads into the desktop.

but the question now do I fix this, so that i dont get this error boot screen everytime I restart.
