Hello, I need help with my Acer, It's an aspire 5552, Whenever i try booting it up it comes up the following
"Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v14.0.8
Copyright (C) 2000-2009 Broadcom Corporation
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
All rights reserved.
PXE-E61: Media test failure, Check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
"Main problem"- "No Bootable Device -- Insert boot disk and press any key""
The main problem was the last line, I have tried all solutions such as ALT+F10, Nothing appears to be working, I did not receive any boot recovery disks with the purchase, If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

It sounds like the hard drive may have died, as it is essentially telling you that it cannot find the hard drive. You can try removing the hard drive and then put it in an external case to test it out to be sure.

no, just setting in BIOS, Disable of LAN booting options, it looks like your computer is trying to boot from your network.
