It means that in BIOS you or someone else changed the boot order and now  the PXE (pre boot execution environment) set as the first boot option.

 

Unless you have a need for your notebook to be used on a network as a workstation, go into BIOS and disable PXE.

 

Most HP Compaq/Presarios require that you tap the F10 key as the notebook is starting up to enter the BIOS. Set the boot order back to the first hard drive at the first or second in the list.  I would have given more specific advice but you did not state which HP product you own.

 

regards,

Re: Start Up Error

Here is a link to the manual for your laptop series. 

 

 

To start the Setup Utility, turn on or restart the computer, and 
then press f10 while “Press <F10> to enter setup” is displayed 
in the lower-left corner of the screen

 

 

Go to the System Configuration menu and select Boot Options.

This is a good generic order.

 

❐ ATAPI CD/DVD ROM Drive

❐ Hard drive

 

ensure that 

❐ Network adapter 

is not listed as one of the top three in the list...

 

Now you can exit --make sure that you save your change

 

 

Closing the Setup Utility

You can close the Setup Utility with or without saving changes.

■ To close the Setup Utility and save your changes from the 

current session, use either of the following procedures:

❏ Press f10, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

– or –

❏ If the Setup Utility menus are not visible, press esc to 

return to the menu display. Then use the arrow keys to 

select Exit > Exit Saving Changes, and then press enter.

When you use the f10 procedure, you are offered an option 

to return to the Setup Utility. When you use the Exit 

Saving Changes procedure, the Setup Utility closes when 

you press enter.

 

 

Best regards and Merry Christmas,

erico
