I can't turn on my computer.

Specs: Windows 7
Hello,

I have very old IBM ThinkPad laptop that I never use anymore. Now I remembered that I have some files on it I have to get (also websites that I had put on favorites). When I try to turn on the computer this text comes up:

Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v7. 7.5
Copyright (C) 2000-2004 Broadcom Corporation
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
All rights reserved.

Broadcom Base Code PXE-2.1. v1.0.1

Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broatcom PXE ROM
Operating System not found

Is there something I can do? I really need those files :/ I would be so grateful if you could help me solve this problem.

Thank you,
Soley

It's trying to boot off a network, so either the boot order is setup incorrectly or the hard drive is bad. Check the BIOS settings.
