    hey guys,

    i have an Acer Aspire m5100 with an AMD 64x2 Athion processor running windows vista. I know its not the best but its all i have right now. Im a novice when it comes to technical computer terms and the like, so please try and help me out in a way in which an average pc user would understand.

    When i started the pc up this morning, i received the message dhcp......... then PXE E53:no boot filename received. PXE-mof-exiting PXE ROM. Disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter. I dont have the system disk though.

    It also says "Yukon PXE V6.15.11 (alpha) (20070328) Pre-boot execution environment v2.1

    plus the mac address and the GUID.

    My computer was working fine last night so i dont understand what the problem could be. Could this be a virus? I apologize if i sound dumb asking this but i dont have much experience with computers. PLEASE HELP!!!
