I need nurd assistance fi possible.
I do have a Gateway NV53A Notebook with OS: Windows 7 Home Pro x32
While trying to boot up, it just briefly shows Gateway bootup logo at the footer
saying <Press F2> for Setup with just a Black Screen and cursor blinking.
Cannot type anything, if I continue typing beeps several times.

I have tried F8, it wont allow to do that either.
On F2 for Bios, rearrange boot priority to boot frm CD to run repair, negative.
Keeps going to blinking cursor.

I tried to Boot from Network, message displays;
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.

Kindly need your expertise to assist this issue am facing.

Thanks in adavance

Stupid question, but you did have the Windows 7 CD inside to do the repair, right?

Just want to make sure (sorry if it's a stupid and offensive question for you).
