I really need some help...i have reinstall windows 7- 3 times. None have worked.
i first system restored to earlier time. It work for awhile then stopped. Next i went through the f8.using dell databackup disk, again worked for days and then stopped.. last night i tried the system recovery disk made when first got system. I had tried them before but it wouldnt read them..last night it did. Retore to factory settings. But when i was looking at the computer panel i no longer have the d drive...sending a picture. orginaly there was the c with 56 gigs and d with rest. now d is unalloted. I would like to partition c bigger but thats later. I thought virus but i have ran all online scanners and no virus showed. I have ran all the diagnostics dell and microsoft installed. No problems..
My problems--1. when i turned on pc today, i am getting same message that made me do first restore..
"Realtek PCI FE Family Controller etc..PXE E-61 media test failed
PXE-M0F exiting PXE ROM"
exit reboot or install boot media"
2. what happened to d drive, make it useable again?
3. How do i make the install stable
I have my pc set at f2 to boot to hard drive. Each time i start pc i have to redo this even though i keep saving configuration to hard drive...when using dvd i f12 to boot to dvd but always reset it...so
what do i do now...my pc will not stay set to boot to hard drive nor is the d drive there...i used the methods decribed-toubleshooting boot failure.
