My laptop will not turn on completely. It powers up but I keep getting this message.
IDE #0 Error
Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)

Insert System Disk in drive
Press any key when ready
I’m convinced it has to do with the new external iomega hard drive I installed. I tried unplugging the device and the screen still appears. I also inserted the CD that came with my laptop to system restore but after I follow the commands and press C for continue nothing happens. The screen stays the same so I assume the restore is working but maybe an hour or even 5 hours later, (I’ve tried it three times) the laptop goes blank.
Can anyone help me?

hi,does your laptop have a name ,like Dell, Toshiba ,ect ect
it sounds like its not reconzing your hard drive ,try going into setup/bios on bootup ,you will need to hit a key to do this it should show on the screen what key to hit to enter setup/bios, in there check to make sure it sees you harddrive ,make sure in the boot section its set to boot to the harddrive first .
