PXE Error with new hardrive

I got this PC from my grandparents who's hard drive crashed, they said if I can fix it I can have it. the only problem is I can't figure out what is causing the problem, I replaced the hard-drive with an 80gb one from our old PS3 and it works, passes the diagnostic test as well as everything else. I've checked online to see if there is anything else that could be causeing the problem and a lot seems to always lead back to the HDD (accodring to all of the forums I have visited) and also it does not seem to be connected to the mother board because I have not seen a message saying "cannot find IDE" in the tests yet I still get the error message that follows:


Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Series v2.31 (10/12/09)

PXE -E61: Media test failure, check cable

PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.


Reboot and Select proper Boot device

or Instert Boot Media in selected Boot device and select a key


Is there anything I can do to fix this?
