A few months ago (right around when Skyrim came out) my laptop would constantly blue screen and when I rebooted it I would get this message
All rights reserved.
Broadcom Base code PXE-2.1 v1.1.1
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
Operating System not found.
I thought it had something to do with the fact that I modified my laptops start up sound and possibly messed something up, or the fact that I downloaded some software to try and make Skyrim run better on my laptop (which did work, but I was almost certain it's what messed up my laptop).
I used Gamebooster from iobit, do you think that's what caused the problems the first time?
Anyways, I got tired of the bluescreens and the weird Broadcom errors so I reformatted my laptop and up until now it's been working fine.
I had my laptop in hibernate mode and when I opened the lid it had that error and the fans were going crazy. I don't know how to replicate the error, when it used to happen it was just random as well. I haven't been using any new software this time.
Please someone tell me how to fix this, but in simple steps!
(I'm also using Windows 7 if you need to know that?)
EDIT: I also forgot to mention that if I force shut down my laptop on the error screen and start it up again I can use it just fine, no blue screens yet though
