    Hello Everyone...Merry Christmas!:eek:)
    I have this problem with my Laptop!
    I plugged it into the Comcast Cable and then turned it on! The next thing that occured was a the Computer trying to boot to a Network and searching for DHCP address! I manually entered it. Still it returns to PXE-E53 Media Test Failure
    PXE-MOF Exiting Intel PXE-ROM.
    It then returns to same thing over and over...Put in System Disc and Press any key. I Don't have the disc, so that is Impossible! I usually find and apply cures. This time I am at a loss! If anyone can help I would appreciate it. I have read threads about it for weeks...to No avail. Thanks for reading, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! :eek:

    I have modified your post - so it can be read - please do not use centre text or bold through out
    I have also removed your email address and that is the quickest way to get spam , by putting a valid email on a forum

    Go into the BIOS, and see if the PC can see a harddrive
    also take a look at the boot options and make the "other devices" or "other" last in the boot sequence.
    sounds like you have boot from LAN enabled.
    If so - disable.
    PXE is a protocol for booting from a network drive or server.
    It is failing, because it could not find an Operating System on the network to boot from.
