Toshiba Satellite failure

My laptop was working fine. This afternoon I was comparing digital cameras
on DP Review and suddenly, without warning, it re-booted to  the following
message (which I also got the last time when the HDD failed):

(The Toshiba logo appears then I get):

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 082
Copyright (c) 1997 - 2000 Intel Corp.

For Realtek RTL8139 (A/B/C) RTL 8130
PCI Fast Ethernet Controller V. 2.12 (010425)
PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM

To say the least, I am puzzled. Any ideas what this could be?

Google "Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0" reveals that is likely a failure of the HD;
there is no boot partition found on the HD.


Re: Toshiba Satellite failure

It's trying to boot from the network.  Go into BIOS and change the boot
order.  This may mean that it's not seeing the hard drive; could be
motherboard or hard drive failure.
