Hi all,
Was on computer last night and when i went to change volume, the internet crashed and my laptop made a buzzing sound. I turned the computer off manually as the sound didnt stop when i closed the lid.
Today when i turned my laptop on, i received a black screen with the words;
"Realtek PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller Series v2.26 (090219)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

Have tried pressing ctrl+alt+delete but this gets me to a screen saying "SMART Hard Disk Error"

Please help

Go into the BIOS and make sure the hard drive is the boot disk. And disable network boot in the BIOS

Make sure you have not got a floppy disk in as well!
