|Okay, about a week or so ago, I was getting |
the following error message when booting my
laptop (Acer Aspire 5100 not sure which one):
PXE-E61: Media test failure, Check cable.
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE-ROM
After a little searching, I found out that it was
trying to boot from the network, which is down
there somewhere in the boot order. I removed
and reseated the hard drive, then since that
didn't help, I proceeded to remove and reseat
Afterwards, I decided to disable network boot.
Now I don't get the error screen, but just a
black screen with a flickering line
What really gets me is that about half the time
it boots normally, without any problems.
Somewhat infrequently, after I get Windows
running, (usually after tilting the laptop in some
direction), it will immediately BSoD on me and
reboot. Other times, I turn and rotate the
laptop all over the place, and it runs fine
through all of that (and for hours afterwards).
I did a disk check on my hard drive using the
chkdsk and also some third party program
called HD Tune. My drive passes the checks
with no errors whatsoever. AVG and
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware check out fine
(and I'm pretty sure it's not a virus anyway).
So... I'm at a loss as to what's exactly wrong
with my laptop. Your help would be much
