Hello everyone,

The PC in my signature below is giving me issues:

Turn on my PC
Computer starts to boot up
(black and white dos screen right before Windows splash screen shows up)
It says something like:

Realtek rtl8139(x)/8130/810x PCI fast ethernet controller v2.16 (041224)

Client mac addr: 00 40 CA A9 82 68 GUID : FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFF...
PXE-E53: no boot filename received

PXE-MOF : EXISTING PXE ROM.
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

I recently turned off the integrated audio in the BIOS of my PC because I have a new sound card, but turning the integrated off gave me issues. I went back into the BIOS and clicked "Restore Defaults" and now I'm getting this error.

The only way to bypass it is if I throw my eMachines recovery CD in.

Anyone know a fix so I don't have to keep using the CD to boot up my PC?

Thank you greatly!

Sounds like your machine is set for network boot in the BIOS setup. Go into Setup during boot and either disable the network boot or set it last on the list.
