...I don't know if this is a hardware or a software issue...

Last night I ran the disk cleanup utility on my Gateway 4026 notebook. While it was running, the computer froze and I had to shut down by holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. When I tried to reboot, I got the following messages:
For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.
No Operating System found.

I tried to find my rescue CDs but they are no where to be found. Can anyone help me in fixing this?

Thanks,
Mickey

I can't even to to safe mode. The errors start right after the bios screen. Windows does not load. I think I'm hosed.

Yep, unless you can get a bootable cd, like your system recovery cd or a windows install cd.
