When I shutdown my laptop, it wont boot back up. Here is the following message in italics that appears on the screen.

Intel® Boot Agent Version 4.0.18
Client Mac ADDR: 00 00 39 c9 65 8B Guid:26 dee 880-c207-11d5-8093-b15381054477 pxe-e53: No Boot Filename Received.
PXE-MOF:Exiting intel pxe rom
insert system disk in drive
press any key when ready


One other note I may add ,is that its been happening for about 3 weeks now....I have been able to restart the computer on 4 occasions since this has occured, but its always at least 24-36 hours later....It wont start up on the same day it has shut down, for whatever reason(s)

Thank you for any help :whistling:

I also should add that I've left my laptop on overnight for several nights to avoid having this problem, but obviously that wont correct the problem.

Thanks again for any input you may have.

your computer seems to be trying to boot from a network....for mysterious reasons unbeknownst to me (knownst to others)...some bios versions will trip over to a PXE boot unexplicably

boot into your bios and make sure that your HD is the first boot device in the list...also look for a section for disabeling PXE boot...or network booting

Im on a computer @ the library, so Ill look into the BIOS settings for that HD as 1st boot device when I arrive home. Do you have any other suggestions.
