Check your BIOS to make sure that the boot order is correct.
You may have a failing CMOS battery - have you noticed if the
time has been changing on the system? - if so replace it.

Sounds like perhaps the hard drive died and the bios is going thru the list of boot devices with PXE as the last choice.

The time has not changed. This is the ONLY error message I receive and I have no problems with my computer. What should I do next?

Thanks,
Mark

The first line says "Pre Boot Exe env and underneath it says "(PXE) v2.1 Intel

After it loads "DHCP, under that is states PXE File boot name not found - (E53).

So I am confused as to why there are two.

Thanks,
Mark

Sounds like your boot sequence is set to boot first from a network device. Check your boot settings in bios.

Thanks, but I am having trouble remembering which F key to push during initial startup to get to BIOS. After I do, and that is the problem how do I fix it?

"and I have no problems with my computer."
except you can't boot to the hard drive..right?

Since you didn't post what you are running for hardware no one can advise you concerning bios access keystroke.

Again, everything points to your hard drive having failed. Might want to take it to a shop for repair.

I had a system crash. I had to reinstall Windows xp Home
Edition SP3 that I had to purchase lst year from Comp USA.
I ran msconfig and checked the BootINI boot paths and all came back working properly.
