Exclamation See gateway screen BUT...

On a gateway computer when you turn it on it shows PXE-2.1 Intel Base Code, (build 083). I think something was stopped from starting up in the boot.ini. This pc must be up and running by tonight!! Can anyone help?? The pc is running Windows XP Home.

updated sig soon

Taken from here: PC Lost Its Mapping To The Bootup sequence-1962 error - Tech Support Forum

This may sound silly but the fix should be to pull the power cable from the wall outlet for a minute or two. If that doesn't do it, clear bios (cmos) by the mobo pins. PXE is the preboot execution environment. Basically your computer is trying to boot from a network drive which you don't have. More than likely the jumpers on one of the drives were set wrong
Hope that helps

If it happens again, just boot into the BIOS, and disabled the Boot from LAN option. Usually fixes it... I've seen this happening quite a bit lately, actually o.O
