Default Toshiba Start Up Issue

Hello everyone:

I have seen this issue show up quite a few times, on this forum, and others, and this time, its happened to me. Heres the run down:

Toshiba Satellite 1805

Bootup Error:

" Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 4.0.18
Copyright (C) 1997-2001, Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Insert system **** in drive.
Press any key when ready...."


Well, i figured the hard drive had died, and that it was booting straight to a network, but after check the BIOS, it's still there, all and well. Any ideas?

Yes in fact the BIOS is trying to boot from the network card. Try resetting to factory settings, save end exit.

Try that goodluck.

Ive tried restoring to factory settings, no luck. As far as running an anti virus program, it would be difficult to imagine a virus on the laptop, as it hasnt been connected to the internet in 3 years.
