PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

Q: PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

I have a Gateway 2004 Intel 4 with Microsoft xp. I used the Dban to put my computer back to what it was at its original. I want to put the computer in a garage sale and that is why I cleaned the files out. Now I get the following when I turn it on: "Intel(R) Boot Agent FE v4 1.16; Copyright (C) 1997-2--4, Intel Corporation; Intel (R) Boot Agent PXE Base Code (PXE-21 building 084) CLIENT MAC ADDR: 0011 11 d0 0315 GUID; 60d34c87 e51d b211 8000 bf6c71c486f6; PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
I wanted to install the 2003 microsoft cd that I have but I cannot get the computer to do anything. I can't type anything after the word "Agent" I think I have really messed this up. Can anyone help me?

my pc is stuck in safe mode. i get this message when i reboot. pressing f8 doesnt work. what can i do

A:pxe-mof exiting intel boot agent

From another pc if possible.

Download Ubuntu Live CD ISO image and burn the ISO image to a cd using Imgburn (how to burn an ISO image using Imgburn). With the newly burned cd boot with it then select "Try Ubuntu" not "Install Ubuntu" access the Windows partition or what ever partition or hdd you which to backup files from by going to the panel on top, select "Go" click on "Computer". Select the partition, or Hard drive then directories, and files you wish to back up, Backup the files to DVD, an external hard drive or thumb drive(s).

Reboot or turn on the machine. As soon as you see your machine's name logo splash screen keep tapping F8. Go to "Advanced Options" or "Repair Computer" Select your language then "Repair Your Computer" An installation of Windows should be detected after that select "Next"

If that does not fix the issue. Do the same as before go to Next again go to command prompt type in

Hi everyone, I just thought that i would share my findings on this problem as it has been giving me a headache all night. I tried to install Windows 7 on my laptop which was running ubuntu 14.04 and i kept getting denied due to error msg-

"PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

I tested the hard drive and it was ok, I installed linux mint and was successful and realized that the fault was in the usb drive. So after a great deal of research the result was that the installer needed to be made bootable for UEFI.

- Create bootable Windows 7 usb using the Windows 7 usb/dvd download tool
- Once completed open the efi folder
- Create a new folder and name it "Boot"
- Open the microsoft folder and then open the boot folder and copy all of it's contents
- Paste the contents into the "Boot" folder that you created
- Open the "sources" folder and right click on the "install.WIM" file and use to open archive
- Once extracted open the "windows" folder then open "boot" and then open "EFI"
- Locate "bootmngfw.efi" and drag it to the "boot" folder that you created
- After moving the "bootmngfw.efi" file rename it to "BOOTX64.EFI"

After doing this my usb booted finally booted into the Windows 7 installer screen and I was able to proceed normally. I hope this post saves someone else some grief.

So i managed to fix the NTLDR problem with the help of some people on here (sorry i forgot your name, thanks though). But as always i get another problem, i swear thats what computers were designed for, to make you get grey hair quicker, anyway to the point!

The strange thing is my computer works fine, no problem at all! So why am i asking for help, well its because of this:-

Everytime i boot up my computer i get no beep from the POST test, so that indicates a problem to me! Then it goes ''intiaizling Intel boot agent version 2.2 press ctrl + s to enter'' well i just leave it and carry on as normal, then it goes to a blank screen for 30 seconds then it loads fine!

But sometimes it also gives me this mumbo-jumbo:-

RPL-ROM-ADR: 00D0 B716 7F1D

RPL-ROM-FFC: (then it goes from 1-200)

So instead of being lazy i researched it, and from the results i got it indicates that it is trying to boot from another computer on the network or something like that, not to sure! So it suggests to go into the BIOS!

But the problem is i can't get into the BIOS it doesn't say press so and so on the boot screen, it only shows me the Intel agent thingy!

So although my computer boots up, it could be healthier, i would appreciate any help?

Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I have recently been getting this error that when I try to start Windows a error will pop up say that the Intel Boot Agent has failed. I have no idea what the Intel Boot Agent is and wondering why it is stopping me from entering Windows. I tried to reformat but it just didn't do the trick. I recently resetted all my BIOS and it would work once in a while but it does go back to the error after. I was wondering if any of you can help me that would be awesome!

Error looks like this:

Okay so the other day, my grandpa called me, telling me that he had a gift- A laptop. Upon receiving it, i realized that it was a fairly old Toshiba Satellite laptop (A15-S129) from the Philippines. After a week or so, i realized that it was still only XP with service pack 2, so i went up to microsoft update, and started trying to update it. Then i got into a bunch of junk about it being non-genuine Windows, because it did not match the region it was currently in (usa). So i abandoned my quest to update drivers and such, and accepted it. Then today, i started getting messages from the comp as it restarted a few times, warning me that it was in danger because it wasn't genuine.
Now, it won't start up.. Instead, I get this message:

I don't know if this is a question for the Win2K forum or the Linux one...but here goes...

I have an older, hand-me-down, Compaq Armada laptop with Win2K loaded on it. However, the drive was partitioned to dual boot Mandrake. The W2K Disk managment tool shows 3 additional partitions besides the NTFS drive.

I would like to get rid of those partitions & Mandrake (I have a new version of SuSe on my other computer now) to give that little laptop more hard drive space, but I don't want to destroy the exisiting W2K setup. (I know there are no guarantees, but would like to make that my goal, at least)

The disk managment tool seems to do a pretty good job of re-partitioning and formatting of partitions (so far), but I don't know how to deal with the INTEL Boot Agent. If I take Mandrake off and let W2K format those partitions to NTFS, will it also get rid of the boot agent? Or do I need to uninstall that myself? There seems little point in having it when there are no longer two OSs on that computer.

Any ideas, or advice of how to do this? (Thanks ahead of time :O) OldLadyWho

What happens when you try to uninstall in Safe Mode? Why were you unable to do that?

Just right-click the device in Device Manager and choose "Uninstall".

This has nothing to do with any Intel Boot Agent unless you are trying to boot from a network.

Hi chusta What you are trying to do right now is called a "PXE Boot", it's basically a boot from the network. This kind of practice isn't made for home use and is mostly used in companies/entreprises. It's what I do when I have to "push" an image on a new computer. To solve that issue, simply go in your BIOS and disable the "LAN Boot" or the "PXE Boot". Also make sure that your hard drive is the first device in the boot order. What computer brand and model do you have?

I've been reading other threads and posts on intel boot agents, and none them seem to be too similar to my current situation. I recently upgraded my hard drive from a hitachi 20gb ata to a hitachi 160gb ata laptop drive. Everything was working great. Just yesterday, the computer stopped after the intel boot agent (version 3.01 or something) came up on the screen, right before loading the "resuming windows" or "starting windows" white progress bar appears across the bottom of the screen. I don't know what the problem is at all.

I put my old 20gb hd in, and the machine started up properly, no problems. With my old 20gb hd in the internal slot, I attached my 160gb via USB and an external enclosure. The 160gb hd worked fine; I could access various folders. I was also able to get a DOS prompt (can't remember how, think it was after canceling the windows xp cd repair, installation) and I ran "C:windows\chkdsk" and it showed no problems. So, I know its not the hd.

I thought maybe it was an incorrect shutdown or hibernate on the 160gb hd that caused the computer to stop in the first place. However, I can't find the hiberfil.sys or the correct file to erase the hibernate data. I'm not sure if it's the BIOS or a startup/load file on the 160gb. I also don't know if loading the windows xp master cd and running a "repair on windows installation" would work and whether or not that would remove some of my pho... Read more

- Dell Insprion 14z - 5423 Laptop
- Old HDD: 500GB HDD in and there is a 32GB SSD component. I don't know if that is on the drive or MB. Not too familiar.
- I installed a new Samsung EVO 840 1TB SSD
- Old drive was running Windows 7 Ultimate

This problem has me stumped.

I have this customers laptop. Doing some changes and about to setup an external dvd burner. Also this netbook is a acer aspire one about two months old and it is running windows Vista. So the netbook is working fine sharing files across the network, browsing the internet, and other basic tasks. So anyway, I plug in the HP external dvd burner and the laptop freezes, then shows a scrambled picture and cuts off.

So I'm a little confused. I boot it back up and get this:

PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, Check Cable
Operating System Not Found

Ha so at this point, I unplug all of the USB devices like the mouse and dvd burner. I reboot again and same thing. So this time I go into the limited bios options. I disable the network option and same thing. Then I go into the bios and disable all of the "USB" options. There are no "other" options and the HDD is listed so it is detecting it. I'm completely lost on this one.

Right now Im going to let it drain so the battery will reset. Ive read up on other forums about slapping it on the bottom but I haven't tried that.

Any other options or ideas? I'm lost. I only have one windows 7 OEM that I have used the license for already. I hate to have to erase and start over on this customers machine.

Hi there. I am running an Asus X55U NOTEBOOK with Windows 8 64 preinstalled. It is one month old. I had it connected to my t.v. last evening via the VGA connector. When I disconnected the connector a blue screen appeared and it stalled out. I restarted the laptop after a couple of hours and it read "Check cable connection... PXE-MOF...Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device...insert boot disk and press any key.

I followed the directions to disconnect battery, power cord, etc., and I held the power button down for 1 minute. I also reconnected the internal hard disk to make sure it hadn't slipped. I then opened the start up utility to check my boot options but my internal hard disk doesn't appear as an option. It isn't detected in the main menu either. I tried to restore the defaults but that did nothing either. Now when I boot it up it goes straight to the Aptio Setup Utility.

Is this a software problem or a hard disk problem? Since my notebook came with win8 preinstalled, I can't reinstall. In fact, I am not seeing a product key listed anywhere on the device either.

My sister's laptop just suddenly died. It's an Acer Aspire Timeline X and has been going well for over 4 years now.

Just today, she was using her computer, locked it, and then went down for dinner, when she came back up, the computer screen was blank, and unresponsive. Upon doing a hard-reset, she came across this error message
check cable connection pxe-m0f exiting intel pxe rom no bootable device
I Googled the error message, and did everything they said, and the error still came up.

This is what I did so far:
1. Took the Hard Drive out, and put it back in - did nothing
2. Tried booting into the eRecovery (manufacturer software) via ALT + F10, nothing happened.
3. Changed the boot order, did nothing.
4. Tried booting into Windows repair, via disk - did not detect the hard drive, only Disk 0 (0MB) was there.

So right now, I'm thinking it's either a corrupt hard drive, or there's a connection issue.

Any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I bought this used Dell Inspiron 1121 with Windows 8 pre-installed last night. I wanted to return it to the factory configuration so I connected an external DVD drive via USB and found to my dismay the BIOS is password protected so I did what has worked on other systems where the BIOS is inaccessible: I removed the hard disk, connected it to another computer, deleted all partitions and put it back into the laptop.

Instead of booting from the external DVD drive containing an original Dell-branded Windows 7 Home Premium DVD, I get the following on the screen:

Go into the BIOS and verify that the boot sequence has your HDD and CD drive before the PXE Boot.

A:say PXE-E61: Media test Failure,check cable PXE-M0F:Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM no boot

and welcome to the Forum

That is usually an indication that the hard drive has failed and it is searching for an alternative boot device . .

You can run diagnostics on the hard drive by downloading Seatools and making a bootable disc. Do the short and long test.

If either test fails, the drive needs to be replaced.

See this for how to make a bootable cd:

I'm having some serious issues with my alienware desktop. Its a decently old computer but hasn't provided me with many problems in the past. Recently, however, I had to transport the computer 4 hours to my new apartment. It was working fine literally yesterday, but after the drive I set it back up and it stopped working.

When I try and boot it, it goes through the BIOS as usual but when it gets to the graphics card boot agent it fails abd guves me a PSX check cable error and fails to even launch windows. I tried different graphics cards, HDD's and even sata cables but nothing helped. Is it a problem with a different cable or perhaps the motherboard? Please help, I need this computer for classes and for work.

I also tried changing the boot priorities in the BIOS but that didnt do anything. . .


A:Boot issues with NVidia boot agent

Nvidia boot agent is part of the bios on boards with an nvidia chipset.
PXE error means the computer is trying to boot from the network because
it is not finding a bootable hard drive.
Nothing to do with the graphics.
Make sure the hard drive is actually being detected in the bios and the hard drive
that you are using has windows installed on it.
Check your sata and IDE settings in the bios to make sure the proper
channels are enabled.
A bad CMOS battery may also be an issue for older computers.
That is the small battery on the motherboard.

My desktop is a Windows XP Home Edition made by Gateway.

Please help. Before my mom does something to make it worse.

A:Boot Agent cannot receive boot filename

Such messages typically appear...when the system is trying to do a network boot.

That may happen because the CMOS battery needs to be some systems, such will make the system return to default boot options.

I would go into the BIOS and see what the first boot device is...if it's not the hard drive, try to change it and save the changes...then try to boot.

If the change doesn't hold or cannot be accomplished...I would replace the CMOS battery.

I recently got my Zepto laptop back from the repair shop (it was completely dead, wouldn't start) where they replaced the motherboard. When I start it up I get to the boot agent where it says:

Realtek RTL8111B/8111C Gigabit Boot Agent
Press Shift-F10 to configure ....

And under that is the flashing "-" mark. It's stuck on this no matter what I do (I've tried different settings in the boot agent configuration but this is all a bit over my knowledge level). I'm not able to boot from a windows CD or do anything.

Is there anything I can do myself or does it seem like the repair shop screwed up and the problem is hardware related? If there's anything I've missed, please ask and I'll try to explain further.

I went to turn on my laptop (it used to be my dad's work laptop) and it is encountering problems try to boot up.
The very first screen that I encounter when trying to boot my laptop says:

2100: HDD0 (Hard Disk Drive) initialization error (2)
Press <Esc> to continue"
When i press escape, it leads to

and "Initializing and establishing link ...".

And then after a minute or so: "PXE-061: Media test failure." and "PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent."

It then takes me to a screen that says:

As of right now, the "current boot order and device status" is:
1. USB FDD -> Device not found
2. ATAPI CD0: ModelMAT****ADVD-RAM UJ-842-(PM) -> No valid operating system

5. PCI LAN: Model IBA GE Slot 0200 v1250 ->No valid operating system
6. -USB HDD -> Device not found
7. ATA HDD1: -> Device not found

Excluded from boot order:

I here that this problem probably arose from it trying to boot from a network drive and that I should change my boot priority order?

Does anyone have any idea what I the problem is and how I can fix it? Thanks so much for the help.

A:Boot Agent Problem

It looks like a hard drive problem. It can't boot from the first 3 and the 4th has a "device error". That is the hard drive. And "device error" sounds more like a mechanical problem than a software one. The errors you see are all later when it tries to boot from the network after failing the hard drive boot.

But open up the drive section and make sure it is firmly connected in its slot. Try booting with a bootable CD like Parted Magic disk partitoning tool (Bootable CD image) and see if the hard drive is accessible. Start the partition editor on the desktop and see what it has to say about the current partitions and file structure (if the drive is accessible at all).

Everytime I start my computer up it runs an Intell Boot agent FE v4.1.09, base code pxe-2.1 (Build 083). What that means I have no clue. Couple weeks ago my computer froze and upon restart said no HD found then ran this boot agent. Ever since it starts to run the boot agent before running windows. Once the boot agent is done it starts windows up normaly. Now I dont know a whole lot about computers but I am assuming the boot order has been changed because of the HD error. (that also scares me maybe I should replace it) But everything seems to be working normally. Just the boot agent runs so maybe I need to change boot order in BIOS and if so how do I do that without messing things up. Thanks for you help!!!!!!

I dont know if this is related, but my computer is also unable to stay asleep (poor insomniac). It constantly wakes up then sleeps again constantly. The point of ISCT seems to be to run updates when the computer is asleep, so it could be related.

hi folks , i thought id come here and see if any can help with a problem im having.

in a nutshell, the computer crashes when i try to install an application (im trying to install a game which is about 550mg when completed)

what happens next is the computer resets, and goes through the usual bootup procedure until it gets to this point

"nvidia boot agent pxe-2.0 (build 082 V1.82)

pxe m0f: exiting nvidia boot agent

disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter"

IF i press the small pinhead sized reset button on the tower, it will do the exact same thing during startup. However, if i push the power button and turn the computer off, then on again, it boots normally.

anyway - while the computer is somewhat old (about 5 or so - hasn't been used in the last year or so) it still runs fine, and has been primarily used as a second computer that played video media files as well as accessing the net for the last 2 or so months.

some points of interest - the installation when this error occured was going to the "D:" partition - it got to about 60% and then crahsed and reset. installing on the "C:" partition had no issues and i was able to play the game. I tried to defrag the D: partition and it crashed also...

Hi sometimes on boot I get Intel Boot Agent saying 'Media test failure-check cable'. Could this be because when I installed a CDRW I moved a jumper, as I had been instructed, and now it is in wrong position, or something else?? The actual drives work fine.

A:Intel Boot

Could be.
1. If you have more than one cd drive - Are the drives on the same ribbon and if so do you have them set as master and slave - or, if you have cable select cable, do you have both of them set to CS?
2. if you have only one cd drive - is it set to master, or if you have cable select cable, is it set to CS?

when i start my computer, it goes to the gateway start page, and after a while (it's quite slow) it goes to the black page, and this is what it says:

Intel Boot Agent FE v4.1.10

PXE-M0F exiting Intel Boot Agent

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media
in selected boot device.

it just stays on that screen until i do a CTRL ALT DEL, then it goes back to the Gareway screen and after about 30 seconds finally boots up and i get the Windows XP start up page, and it opens up my desktop and i can continue .

Can anyone tell me why this started happening and how to correct it?

I recently built my first desktop computer, and for the most part it went pretty well. The one issue I am having is that every time the computer boots, I get the following message:

When I check the Event Viewer, i have an error message that doesn't have a description, but just includes the following string (Sorry, the smiley should be : and D, but it auto creates a smiley):

CAgentState:oPeriodicSuspendResume ****Error in initialize NetDetect, status = 0x2

Another symptom that i have (I'm not sure if this is related but it might be) is that my computer cannot sleep properly. When i try to put it to sleep, i continuously wakes back up then goes back to sleep. I can't stop this without rebooting.

I have tried removing and reinstalling Intel Smart Connect, but this hasn't helped. Does anyone have any other ideas of how i might be able to fix this? Thanks

We have a RAID 1 (MIRROR) using the INTEL SE7505VB2 motherboard and software SATARaid on the Boot Device of our server running Windows 2000 Service Pack 4. While doing internal maintenance, the power cable to the SATA Drive 0 came out. When the machine rebooted, the machine would NOT reboot and said their was no operating system found.

After replacing the power cable, the machine did boot, but the INTEL raid software immediately rebuilt the Drive 0 data with the data on Drive 1, which would have been identical except the machine did not boot with just the Drive 1 connected.

I am now afraid that after the rebuild, the machine copied over a non bootable partition over the bootable partition and the server will NOT boot when necessary.

Is this true? Also, how would I make the non bootable drive, a bootable drive, if necessary.

Is there any way to disable booting from USB on this motherboard? All I can find is disabling USB 2.0, but that doesn't help me because I use USB 2.0 in Windows.

My problem is when I plug my iPod in and boot my computer it will hang at the ASUS screen, trying to boot from my iPod, but it can't. It just pisses me off because I have to either disable USB 2.0 in the BIOS which causes it not to work in Windows, or I have to unplug my iPod which requires me going under my desk (very hard...). I don't see anything related to USB in the boot order, so it must be set first.

EDIT: I think I found my solution about 30 seconds after posting this, but oh well maybe someone else will need this... I'm going to try disabling Legacy USB Support tomorrow and see if it works.

Hello all,

A friend brought me his Windows XP Pro machine that uses Intel RST Raid 1 (mirror) that cannot boot. He told me Avast flagged some files after yesterday's Windows Updates and he agreed to let it remove them. I don't know what the files were.

Upon rebooting, an error message comes up. Raid config says status is Rebuild & that it is bootable. Error on boot says Reboot & Select proper Boot device.

I tried booting to an XP Pro setup disk, but I get a BSOD just before it finishes loading. I am not overly familiar with Raid setups and am unsure how to proceed. Any advice to help me get this thing booting up again would be much appreciated.

Bought me a 320 GB Free Agent external drive by Seagate. Plugged it in to USB 2.0 port; works flawlessly. Problem is, when I shut down and reboot the computer, it seems to interrupt the boot up process, causing a black screen, and stopping the boot process right there. I made sure that it wasn't included in the boot devices in the BIOS, and this boot up problem happens only about 50% of the time. If I unplug the drive, it'll boot up fine almost 100% of the time. Any idea what could be happening here? I'm running XP home, with 1.5 G of memory, and two internal 80 GB HD's. I tried plugging this drive directly into the tower, and into a hub - same problem either way. (Actually seemed to occur more frequently when plugged directly into the tower.)

The site's tech support pages have no drivers to update (plug and play), and doesn't tackle this problem.

A:Seagate Free Agent Drive causing boot up problems

This is probably a BIOS issue. I have two systems here, (the two newest), that have the same issue. When I boot with a USB device attached, the BIOS gets confused about what device to boot, and there's nothing in the BIOS setup that will make it right.

Do what my doctor prescribes for issues like this: "If it hurts when you do that, don't do that".

While working in Photoshop and attempting to open a Topaz Labs filter which has been on my computer for over a year with no problems, Avast shot me a warning about the Topaz Filter being malicious and quarantined it (and the filter doesn't work now) and told me I needed to shut down so Avast could run a boot scan.  Photoshop wouldn't work anymore, so i had no choice but to turn off and restart
The Avast Boot Scan found two viruses - (1) WIN32:OUTBROWSE-JV AND (2) VBS: AGENT-BII.  I had Avast send both to the chest.
I then looked up these viruses on the net and they both seem very malicious - can open back doors, can reinfect my computer continuously, can eventually corrupt all my data, etc.
So, I'd like to know (1) how to completely remove these viruses (and all their registry entries, etc.) and (2) is there a way to know if they have corrupted anything else and if so, (3) how can I remove/fix any harm these viruses have done.
Would appreciate any help you can give - am afraid to do anything on this computer until I am sure it is clean!
Thanks so much!

Hey everyone

Several hours ago I woke up, turned on my computer and to my horror, windows did not start regularly.

Instead I got this message on the black screen that appears before windows starts:

"Raid Array

Press F10 to enter raid setup utility"

I then get this message after several seconds of waiting:

"Boot from CD/DVD
Nvidia Boot Agent
Client Mac Address: (lots of numbers here)"
I read some stuff that I found by googling and I suspect that its related to my NIC, but I could be completely wrong here. Anyways I tried disabling it via the BIOS but I couldn't find it. What names can my NIC appear by in the BIOS list?
Or could it be something else?

I tried changing the boot order in BIOS so that the harddisc will be first in priority, but it didn't seem to help.

Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm an animator and graphics designer and even though I have partial backups of my works, it would suck really bad to lose all of them. I only need windows to load up successfuly once, so that I'll be able to backup everything and then format it if needed.

A:Windows won't load, nvidia boot agent & array raid fun

You are getting the msg because the array has problems and the system is attempting to boot from a network.

To fix, you need to first find out if one or more of your drives have failed. Download and run the drive maker's utility for checking drives.

I am guessing you are using raid0 and not 01, 5, 1, etc.

Hello everyone, I hope you can help me.

I am running windows 8. So, tonight I noticed the process iastordatascv.exe was eating about 1GB of memory, the computer being idle. After some investigation in several forums I find out that my version of this Intel driver (11.5) had a major memory leak and that it was recommended I downgrade to version 11.2, which I do. I download the driver from Intel's website and install it, and all is fine. Then it asks me for system reboot. And there is were it all goes downhill. the computer won't boot, just hangs on the dell logo and attempts to repair the system, which it never does.

The first time it asked about doing a system restore, so I click accept in hopes that it could help. It doesn't. After subsequent tries it doesn't even offer the option to do that anymore. If i go to BIOS everything seems to be in order except for the mSATA device not detected.

Diagnostics tests come back clean, meaning that I think it's the driver that did something to the Windows install.

Can somebody please help? This computer is not even a month old, but I already have a lot of stuff in there that I had no time to backup. Any contribution would be much appreciated.


A:Can't boot after installing Intel driver

Hi Susanna (and welcome to the forums)

Quick-fix try: . . . (Safe Mode)
Since your computer isn't successfully booting, it is supposed to show you an advanced startup menu after two unsuccessful attempts. Let it try again for two more times, and see if the alternative startup menu appears.

The first screen should show Choose An Option, and offer several choices, one of them should be Troubleshoot. Choose Troubleshoot.

The next screen should show you options to Refresh your PC, Reset your PC, or Advanced Options. Choose Advanced Options.

The Advanced Options screen contains the options -- System Restore, System Image Recovery, Automatic Repair, Command Prompt, and Startup Settings. Choose Startup Settings.

You will then be shown a screen listing various startup options. The one we are interested in here is number 4 on the list, Enable Safe Mode. Press the function key F4 on your keyboard to enable Safe Mode. Then you should see a new blue rectangular option button to Restart. Choose Restart, and your computer will reboot into Safe Mode.

Once in Safe Mode, enter your password as usual, and uninstall the Intel Driver from Device Manager. To do this, go to the new Start screen (if you are on the desktop, just tap the Windows key on your keyboard - it toggles between the desktop screen and the Start screen). Start typing Device Manager, and Search will automatically open & show you an icon from which you can start Device Manager. In device m... Read more

Hi all, its been awhile since my last post.

now im back with one weird problem...

last 3 months, my desktop makes 3 beeps during boot and it does not want to start as expected. i reseated RAM and some peripherals inside the case. it works fine after for 2 months.

then the problem persisted, this time, im away, so my bro brought it to nearby computer shop and they say it's probably the dust. works fine after.

today i re-organize my entire desktop table which is full of mess. after putting everything neatly in its place. the problem persisted again. i went to check at intel website and they say it should be 64K memory error. then i change the only one RAM stick to another slot. it works fine, but, there's new problem now : the booting process is very slow. it takes 1 solid minute at the Intel logo screen.

i don;t know what's wrong with the bios settings. i've returned everything to default, do a bios-update, and even reset bios jumper. i don;t know whether i do something wrong today, but i'll appreciate it if somebody share some lights here. Thanks in advance....

Hi all.
I'm encountering two issues:

1. Intel SSD write performance
2. Marvell causes slow boot

I'm using Win8.1.
I went over the guide here: The SSD Optimization Guide Ultimate Windows 8 (And Win7) Edition | The SSD Review
I mainly tried step 14,15 & 19. It did improve the performance but not up to the spec of the drive.
I have this Intel SSD for 2 years now.
I used to get up to spec. Performance with AS SSD but now I'm getting this:
Look at the write speed!
According to the SSD Spec's, I need to get at least 500MB/s on Seq. Write.
I connect to the gray port (Intel) on my Asus P8Z77-V-Deluxe which is SATA3.
This drive has 65GB free.
I'm using the Asus P8Z77-V-Deluxe mother board with the following storage specs:
Intel? Z77 chipset :
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue
Supports Intel? Smart Response Technology, Intel? Rapid Start Technology, Intel? Smart Connect Technology
Marvell? PCIe 9128 controller :
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), navy blue
I'm currently running:
Intel SSD (OS drive) - on Gray port
Crucial SSD - on Gray port
2 HDD's both on - Marvell Navy Blue ports.
So before I had abour 500MB/s on SEQ Write but now I'm getting half of it.

Please help me restore the performance of this SSD.

I have tried all sorts from the BIOS drive settings to MSCONFIG settings etc. Nothing changes it.

It's the same coming out of hibernate too. 5 minutes + before the mouse or KB start to respond to input.

All other forums posts I've read all say it boots in about 40 seconds with an SSD. I'm on the verge of going back to my SATA disk as this is almost unusable on a daily basis.

Once into the OS it flies! Apps open instantly and everything runs SOOOO well it's just this boot time that's killing me.

I am totally sunk....

I am kind of good with computers, but not good enough to figure things out.

So I recently ordered a PC from CyberPowerPC. I ordered a 120gb Intel 320 SSD, a 2TB HDD, and a 60gb OCZ Agility 3 Intel SRT Drive.
When I got the PC, the boot drive was the 2TB hard drive for some reason. So I bought a program called Paragon that migrated my OS to my SSD. It worked! But then it told me to activate my SSD in the boot menu in my BIOS. I have an ASRock Professional Gen3 Z68 Fatal1ty Mobo with an Intel 2700k.

I look in my BIOS, and there are 3 things listed there. My HDD, my CD drive, and Disabled. It says Disabled as if the SSD is not on or something.

As of now, I am panicking and I have no idea what to do. I have been switching around what partitions should be active in my Windows 7 CD but nothing is working! Does it have something to do with the SRT drive???


I will reply to any questions immediately!

I have a 2nd gen core i3 Intel NUC with an SSD card. I'm having failures where it seems the entire partition table of my main drive gets deleted after a while. This means my machine cannot boot at all.
When I reinstall Windows 10 it sees the drive as "unallocated space". At first I suspected hardware failure, but I've now installed Ubuntu and it is running fine. I'd prefer to stick to Windows 10, but not with these issues as it makes my machine unusable.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having a huge issue with my new build. I upgraded from a very outdated Intel mobo and processor to an AMD setup. I turn the machine on and everything powers up no problem but nothing boots, not even the BIOS. I can't even boot from the disk drive to reinstall windows. Could really use some help on this one.

A:Changed from Intel to AMD mobo, windows will not boot

Are you getting any beeps after power-on? Not coming out of the BIOS boot is often related to an improperly installed CPU or memory modules and/or defective parts. A little more info on your hardware might help.

My daughters Sony P4 3ghz HT Vaio desktop has always had problems - mainly motherboard related but recently one of her two screens starting intermittently blanking out for a second or so. As it is now out of warranty I decided to try and salvage the good bits and put together a box that could last her for the next year or so.

So I took the following existing bits out of the Sony Vaio

- Pentium 4 cpu 3ghz hyper threading
- 1.5 gb of RAM (2 x Kingmax 512mb DDR-400 and 2xProMOS 256mb DDR-400)
- Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis 256gb vid card
- Hard drives and DVD drives
- Dell 1905 lcd screens

And added them to the following new components

- Antec Sonata II case (with Antec 450 p/s)
- Intel D965PERL mobo - and when that didn't work (see below)
- ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE Socket 478 mobo
- new 200gb hard drive

Problem is that on both the Intel and the ASUS mobo, the PC powers up but nothing happens - the screen remains blank, no sound is emitted (e.g. no beeps under POST) and nothing happens. There is a momentary lighting of the lights on the keyboard (connected by PS2 or whatever that old non-USB connector is called) and the DVD drive will ight up and open/close but no boot screen etc.

I did a quick search here and tried the following - none made any difference

- swapped out the cpu for another (older) 478 P4 I have in another Vaio
- tried a total of 4 different vid cards (and verified that 2 were working on other PC's)
- tried removing... Read more

A:Asus and Intel motherboards power up but don't boot - help please

Remove the processor and check the pins - reseat properly.

Remove and reseat only the 2 x 256 meg sticks.

Reset the BIOS by jumper / removing battery.

Remove the vid card and try booting.

Post results here again.

I've installed a Q300 240G in my T130 LU.
It doesnt boot.

I've tried to use the Restauration Disks, everything seems to went fine.
But It doest boot after that... it does LAN check while the boot device is set to Q300.

I tried with a Windows disk.
It said the disk is locked and I've to unlock it. (The messages are in French).

Do I forgot something?

I bought a 2.8 GHz Prescott CPU with FSB 533 MHz today.
Plugging it to the motherboard, my computer simply failed to boot.
No signal to the monitor nor the keyboard. i.e. everything was just blank while the CPU fan and the hard disk drives are still working though...

I already have the latest BIOS with the Windows XP SP2 hotfix.

I think it is the motherboard that couldn't recognise the Prescott CPU (as it was designed for Northwood).

Is there any chance that my computer will boot? Else my $$ would have been wasted...

Here's my computer specs:

System Model: Compaq Presario 6035CL
Processor(old): 2.00 GHz Intel Pentium 4
8 KB L1
512 KB L2
Board: Compaq 07E8h
Bus Clock: 400 megahertz
BIOS: Compaq 686O2 v3.13 (2003)
Seagate 320 GB

Slot 'DIMM1' and slot 'DIMM2' each contained a 1GB DDR400 Samsung RAM.

Thank you very much ><

A:Intel i845G + Prescott. Failed to boot.

That processor is not compatible with your system. Your system only has a 400mhz bus while the new processor needs a 533mhz bus. Some motherboards will run the processor at the 400mhz bus speed (resulting in a slower clock speed like 2.0ghz) but yours doesn't seem to be one of those.

I suspect the fastest processor you could use would be a 2.6ghz Northwood with a 400mhz bus.

Hopefully this is the right section on the forum, I

Went to jump on my PC this morning and got no response, tried to reboot and nothing. Rebooted it again and got post code 10 (via mobo display) and 4 beeps.


Intel DZ77GA-70 extreme motherboardI7-3770KASUS AMD 380X12 GB RAMWindows 10Corsair CM550Sandisk SSD for main drive

I searched it up and generic 4 beep post code means "system timer fault" which is non repairable and requires a new MOBO is this correct?

I can't find any info on code 10, for this MOBO.

Tried one stick of RAM in all slots and same result, tried pulling CMOS battery, using back to bios button.

Reseated CPU.

Did a cold hard boot.

All parts are about 7 months old except for the CPU and RAM, which came from my previous pre-built HP tower.

I built it because the MOBO in the HP system died which I first bought in 2012.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Boopme
Are you here?
Do I need to post everything that I have already posted to you here?:
or is someone else going to help me? if so please let me know and I will give details to them.
By the way - this morning before work - I deleted my quarentine folders from SuperAntiSpyware and the logs from my desktop and ran a scan and it didn't pick anything up! But my Malwarbytes will not load again from the task bar when I click on it - it would not let me stop it by right clicking either so hoping it wasn't running a script for the DDS scan? - so I'm afraid my trojans might be back! I was going to run the Rkill one more time - but I didn't
I couldn't run GMER - I have Windows 7 64 bit and it would run but it didn't give me any options to check mark. I was using the 34 bit explorer (does that matter?)
Also the defogger - I'm not sure it worked as it didn't come up for me to click the finish button - it just went back to the little box that says disable? But I did get the DDS logs.
Here is my DDS Log:
