Computer locking up

  cowboyfan 17:07 07 Jul 2003

I've got a problem where my Viglen PC locks up solid after about 15-25mins. On rebooting i get the following message;

PXE-E61: Media Test Failure , Check Cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.

Any Help or pointers on what is causing this would be greatly received before I take a hammer to it.

I have fixed the pxe error (Bios was pointed to boot from network) however i still cant resolve the freezing problem.
I have found that on reboot the system says there is an invalid system disk in A: (guess what no disk in drive)
Could this be to do with Idiot proof Windows backup on a branded system.

If you go into CMOS on the bios and change the boot sequence to CD first and then your fixed drive second then this may sort out this problem.

Why haven't you got a floppy drive?

I have got a floppy drive , meant that there was no disk in the drive.I think it has something to do with EZ-BIOS. Any one know anything about this.
