Just a few days ago I was on my laptop with no problem. Suddenly it made this weird noise and shut down instantly. Now whenever I've attempted to turn it back on the following message appears and repeats itself over and over again:
For Realtek RTL8139(A/B/C)/RTL8130 PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.12 (010425)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
I've tried pressing F2 and disabling the Network Boot (i.e put an exclamation mark next to it), I've tried rearranging the order of boot devices, I've changed F8 to start up in safe mode, as well as trying ESC & F5 and to no avail. I'm running out of options and just hope that someone can help in any way. I work from my computer daily so this major setback is becoming more and more frustrating as the days pass by.
