Computer start up is bringing up boot agent message

Q: Computer start up is bringing up boot agent message

when i start my computer, it goes to the gateway start page, and after a while (it's quite slow) it goes to the black page, and this is what it says:

Intel Boot Agent FE v4.1.10
Copyright (C) 1997-2003 Intel Corporation

Intel Boot AGent PXE Base Code (BA 1210BC-GW1)
Copyright (C) 1997-2003 Intel Corporation

PXE-E61 media test failure check cable
PXE-M0F exiting Intel Boot Agent

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media
in selected boot device.

it just stays on that screen until i do a CTRL ALT DEL, then it goes back to the Gareway screen and after about 30 seconds finally boots up and i get the Windows XP start up page, and it opens up my desktop and i can continue .

Can anyone tell me why this started happening and how to correct it?

Preferred Solution: Computer start up is bringing up boot agent message

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How old is the computer, or the hard drive. It appears you have a failed or failing hard drive.

Hi I mistakenly installed an Dell Optiplex 755 HD Audio Driver: of windows xp into my windows 7 system. I am getting the error
Client MAC ADDR: numbers... Guid: numbers...

PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

I am unable to uninstall this driver even in safe mode. can anyone please tell me how to solve this problem.
 

A:Unable to start intel boot agent

What happens when you try to uninstall in Safe Mode? Why were you unable to do that?

Just right-click the device in Device Manager and choose "Uninstall".

This has nothing to do with any Intel Boot Agent unless you are trying to boot from a network.

Microsoft will soon do an about-face and bring back the classic "Start menu" to Windows 8. The catch is, the Start Menu is not coming with Microsoft's next update to Windows 8, which will be available April 8.

A:Microsoft Is Bringing Back The Start Menu To Windows 8

Different rumors and articles are floating around about bringing back the Start menu in Windows 8.

This is from an article I just read:

The Start menu is expected to be here in the coming months via an update for Windows 8.1, but the company might very well wait until the launch of Windows 9 to reintroduce it.

Hi guys

I shall explain what I mean in the title of this post. While making a Windows 10 boot USB I made an error and selected my external USB disk instead of a USB stick. After Media Tool was done with creating the boot USB, the system shows the USB disk as bootable one, which was expected, but also showing it's max capacity at 30GB instead of original 500GB.

Two questions:
1) Is there anyway to revert and/or get back the data from the disk from before making it a bootable USB
2) If the above is not possible, how to format it to it's original form. Currently when going to format tool it only shows me an options to formt as 30GB drive

Thanks in advance for help

A:Bringing the USB used for Windows 10 boot back to it's normal state

I believe that the MCT (media creation tool) formatted the disk as FAT32. It's possible to make a FAT32 drive larger than 32GB, but apparently the MCT went for the oldest, most compatible form.

If you lost data on the external HD, you may be able to recover some of it. I've never used it, but people seem to like the free version of Recuva:

https://www.piriform.com/recuva

If you wish to format the external drive and recover its capacity, format it as NTFS.

I recently installed Windows XP Home (SP2) onto my PC.

After I installed it, I used Partition Magic to make another partion, "K".

When I now boot up, I get a blue Windows screen with the text reading:

"Checking file system on K:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Volumn label is Applications.
CHKDSK is checking. One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check but it is strongly recommended that you continue"

It then starts to verify the disk, finishes, then carries on the boot up process.

Is there any way I can stop the disk check, every time it boots up?

Okay so long story short. My desktop crashed and i got the blue screen of death. Got a new hardrive and blue screen went away. Reloaded xp install disc and I thought everything was good. However thats the only disc I used. I have a few questions. First I used a ethernet cable to hook up my router and computer but my computer wouldnt recongize it, but green lights were on? Also other laptops are connected wirelessly and works fine. Do i need to install another disc or program to use the internet?

Your new installation probably lacks the driver the ethernet connection needs to talk to the router. The light are on because there's power to the connection.. Look in Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager to see what has a yellow mark beside it - you may find ethernet or Network Adapters isn't the only one.

Post back with make and model of the computer and someone will be able to point you to the right driver. You can download the ethernet driver on to your laptop and transfer it but once you're connected to the Net, Windows Update will help you find any others you lack.

Snafu777,
You are living dangerously, with Quickbooks on an XP machine.
The data in quickbooks is at extra risk of being stolen.
It's not clear whether the immediate issue can be fixed here, but the long term issue is serious.

Download and Run Temp File Cleaner (TFC.exe)
Download Temp File Cleaner and save it to your desktop.
You might want to Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs... including your browser!
Right click the TFC icon and choose Run as administrator.
If you have a lot of junk files to remove, it could take a while, so please be patient and let it finish.
When it's done, it will report the total size of files removed. If it asks to Reboot, choose to do so. This will remove files that could not be removed while Windows was running.
After Restart, log back in to your usual account.
You can keep TFC on your desktop and run it every week or two to clean out excessive temporary files. It does usually require a restart.

A:Elitum bringing computer to its knees!

First you need to unzip (extract) Hijack This and move it to a permanent folder. It will not function properly when run from the zip folder or the Temp folder.

You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Right click on the HijackThis.zip file and choose "Extract all" and extract it to the Hijack This folder you created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

After you have done that, post a new log and we'll proceed with fixing you up.

Hey people! I like the forum, it's been an asset to me since I found it. I need a bit of help fixing my uncles computer. It's a PCV-RX670 Sony Viao Digital Studio PC with factory components. It's running Windows XP SP3. My uncle wants to use it just browse the web and play videos via external hard drive and streaming services. It functions in this capacity to an extent. Being as old as it is, and poorly maintained it has accrued plenty of useless data. The hard drive only has a 15gb capacity, and only has 848 MB of space left. According to the disk cleanup tool I can clear 1.8 gigs of junk files, but every time I set it to do this it won't complete the action. What can I do to clear the space manually? Also does anyone know of any light freeware I can give my uncle to help keep it maintained?

Thanks for the Help!

Simply teach him to use the built in tools supplied with the OS.
You find these under Accessories and system tools.

chkdsk /f
disk cleanup with everything checked
defrag

This is all he needs.

Manual cleanup: fine all temp folder and delete their contents holding down the shift key. This will delete them and not put them in the recycle bin.
Uninstall unused applications and then go and delete their folders
Run disk cleanup

Did you delete all partitions during the booted Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

If not I'd start over and this time wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command, reset the BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller to AHCI.

Hello there,

I have an HP Pavilion ze5501us, and I am receiving the following message when booting up my computer:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system"

I have the restore disks that came with the computer, but didn't want to try anything in fear that I may lose my date on my hard drive. Is it possible to repair this without losing my files?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!
 

A:Error message - can't start computer!

Hi

WIth a proper windows CD you can perform a repair operation that will reinstall only system files without touching any user files.

You mention you have restore disks, These may also give you the same option but be careful as some repair disks only give you the option to format and then reinstall. perhaps you could check any documentation that came with the cds on another computer.

Hope this helps a bit

Matt

Well just recently my computer has been slowing to a crawl when I do (normally) simple tasks. Usually I can run a spyware scan on top of playing iTunes, working on a Word document and much more with no problems, but today I noticed that suddenly a scan by AVG alone is using nearly 70-80 percent of my processing power . Also Windows has been taking darn near forever to load. More than 2 minutes. I know this can't be normal. I've had this problem before but received almost no replies so please someone help. This is really ruining my computing experience. By the way I have an AMD Athlon X2 4200+. Any guesses as to what the problem might be? Please guys any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

So the windows key on my keyboard for some reason just stopped working which is a pain. ctrl+esc still opens the menu. But I'd like the shortcut back.

- I have checked the regedt32 - currentcontrolset etc and have no scanmap file in there so I know I never turned it off.

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows logo key on keyboard not bringing up the windows start menu

I think your best bet is to try another keyboard if you have one.

If the problem disappears that suggests you have a suspect key on the original keyboard.

If the problem doesn't go away you can assume it's a Windows problem.

Is there any dirt on the keyboard and have you checked whether the Windows key sticks?

Failing that, you could try a system restore to a point in time before the problem occurred.

I sounds as though the hard drive is compressed. Try this. On next restart start rapidly tapping F8. Select 'Repair my Computer' At the prompt to select your OS installation, click the button that says 'Load Drivers'. This should bring up a explorer-style drive browser. Then just right-click on the drive you compressed, and deselect 'Compress this Drive', which should still be ticked on. Hit apply, and apply to subfolders/files.

One of your programs is probably trying to run updates at startup, but is not getting through to the server:

Check your programs settings, or check Event Viewer to see which program is acting up. If that doesn't work, you may need to do a clean boot to see if that helps isolate the problem. The above links have more details on how best to carry out these troubleshooting steps.

I am running windows xp 64 bit pro. Everything worked fine yesterday but today I cannot get it to boot properly. After the POST screen I get the windows logo with a loading bar like normal, but then after that it just goes black and I can hear the drives running for around 30 seconds before the computer restarts. I used Hiren's Boot CD and can start the computer in linux off of that. Unfortunately I lost my windows xp CD's in a move and I have no idea if it is possible to get new xp 64 bit pro CDs from anywhere these days. Any ideas?

Ever since I've had my current computer, it has had a message that plays during the DOS startup, through the speakers, in a robotic female voice saying, "System completed power on self test, computer now booting from opertating system."

Any ideas on how I might be able to turn this off? It sounds like I'm turning on the HAL 9000.

you'll need to enter the BIOS and disable 'report system booting' in the 'speech configuration' panel. probably under advanced. if you post the mobo make/model i can download the manual to see exactly where to go

I am posting this on my laptop as my main computer will not start at all.
I noticed it started freezing more regularly recently, but two days ago when I switched it on, the hard drive light comes on permanently, and it beeps at me. This is as far as I get with it.
I have tried to put boot up floppy in floppy drive, but it does not access the floppy drive.
Could this be virus related??
Any suggestions as to problem solving, cos if I send it back to manufacturers, it will probably be gone for about 3 months and will cost a packet.

A:Computer will not start/boot up

Pull the cover off, remove everything except the processor, one stick of memory, vid card, try to boot with a floppy.

Check that the power supply cables are attached firmly
Check that the cpu fan is spinning up when you hit the start button

Reseat the cpu, memory, and vid card.

If it boots, just start adding one thing at a time back in and see if the problem reoccurs with a certain piece of hardware.

Typical fix to try is the fixmbr command from the XP Recovery Console.

Hi
This morning I had to insert a graphics PCIx16 graphics card on my Gigabyte motherboard. I wanted to see if the monitor would show picture and it did. The computer booted and posted just fine. I've had this computer for a year. So I put the case back on my computer and hooked everything up, including the peripherels. But when I turn on the power button nothing happens. The fan doesnt start, there's no beep, nothing happens. I don't know what happened, I suspect my mobo may have something to do with this? My power cord works just fine since It worked this morning.

Any ways to fix this? Thanks

p.s. while i was working in the case there was a loose screw making noise in the case.

Can you connect your Win 7 SSD directly to the motherboard? It's looking like BIOS can't see that drive on a warm restart (I don't know why). Most of these add on SATA cards don't boot very well as it is. If you can rearrange your storage, you're far better running a boot drive from the motherboard if you can.

Whenever I press the power button on my computer it will start up then only get to the screen where it looks like a BIOS information menu then freezes.

If I press F8 enter the boot menu then choose the HD with the functioning system it starts up fine. How do I fix it so it starts up without having to go through the boot menu?
Thanks

Hey,

I'd like to know how to make it so that when I start my comp a program starts automatically...

The program im talking about is a little bar application that simulates the mac os x bar on the pc....

I thought about trying to do it in msconfig but I cant find a place to add some sort of path to the applications .exe
any help would be great. Thanks.
 

A:(Solved) Boot a program on start of computer

The simplest way to achieve this, is to drag the program's executable file ("program".exe) to your Startup folder (Start > Programs Startup).

That will launch it when you start up.

Never had any problems until I installed directX 9.0c and continued to restart as it tells you to. When windows first begins to boot(first part of progress bar) the computer just restarts and continues to restart everytime it gets to that same spot of trying to load windows. Tried starting in absolutly every configuration including safe mode and last known good configuration but the same thing happens over and over. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

A:At start of windows boot, computer restarts

Try this.... Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt. If you can get to just the command prompt then type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe This will start the restore wizard and you can restore ot an older restore point (before DX9.0c install)

A:Computer completely unresponsive at boot/start-up

Sorry for the delay in responding, there just aren't that many of us that help out in this forum.
Do you still need help with this?
 
Most likely the program deleted a necessary boot component.
As such, the first step would be Startup Repair.
 
In most cases (w/Win7), you can get to it by tapping F8 just as the manufacturer's splash screen goes away (and before the Windows splash screen shows up).
It should lead you to a prompt that says Repair this computer" or something similar.  It'll be followed by the different Safe Mode option.
 
If that doesn't fix things, then I'd suggest backing up your data, and then performing a repair install of Win7:  http://www.maximumpc.com/how-to-repair-a-faulty-windows-installation-without-reformatting/
 
You may want to perform hardware diagnostics before repairing Windows in order to ensure that the system is free of malware and that it doesn't have problems with the HDD or memory:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

first, take out the hard drive and attach it to another machine.

second, copy your files.

I have 2 different hard drives that I have had tested and have been told they are okay. So when I hook them up in my system (that I have also been told it is okay), it stops at the boot from cd prompt, right above it the line says, unknown flash, then the boot from cd line and then it stops. I have unplugged the cd rom and the floppy drive to see if that is the problem but the computer is still stuck there. What do I try next? I even put the windows xp disk in to try and see if I could do anything with it, it shows the checking your hardware configuration line then that disappears and nothing else happens. So not sure if it is something with the hardware, hard drive or what is happening. Thanks again for any advice.

Hi,
My PC takes ages to boot up and it's quite a fast computer. I have used Crap Cleaner etc so I know it's not internet junk slowing it down. I have heard about some programs that come to life on start up that can slow it whilst booting up. How do I find out what these programs are and how can I stop them coming to life on boot up. I just want them to come to life when I select them on.
Many thanks,
Tim.

last night my computer froze and i had to shut it down holding the power button. since then when i have tried to turn it on, it first looks like its gonna load, but then goes to the screen w/ the 3 safe mode options to start in, and to start in windows normally. the arrow keys will not work for me, so i cant get to safe mode and dont know how. after it waits for 30 seconds, it will start in normal mode, and go the the screen where it looks like its gonna load, the "Windows XP Professional" screen, where there is the time bar thing (not sure what thats called). once it is there, the screen will turn black and then restart and go back to the startup page w/ the safe mode options and normal mode option. rinse and repeat. i dont know what to do and any help will be appreciated. thanks!

Howdy,

I'm having some serious issues with my alienware desktop. Its a decently old computer but hasn't provided me with many problems in the past. Recently, however, I had to transport the computer 4 hours to my new apartment. It was working fine literally yesterday, but after the drive I set it back up and it stopped working.

When I try and boot it, it goes through the BIOS as usual but when it gets to the graphics card boot agent it fails abd guves me a PSX check cable error and fails to even launch windows. I tried different graphics cards, HDD's and even sata cables but nothing helped. Is it a problem with a different cable or perhaps the motherboard? Please help, I need this computer for classes and for work.

I also tried changing the boot priorities in the BIOS but that didnt do anything. . .

Thanks,
Slappy
 

A:Boot issues with NVidia boot agent

Nvidia boot agent is part of the bios on boards with an nvidia chipset.
PXE error means the computer is trying to boot from the network because
it is not finding a bootable hard drive.
Nothing to do with the graphics.
Make sure the hard drive is actually being detected in the bios and the hard drive
that you are using has windows installed on it.
Check your sata and IDE settings in the bios to make sure the proper
channels are enabled.
A bad CMOS battery may also be an issue for older computers.
That is the small battery on the motherboard.

Please help. Before my mom does something to make it worse.

A:Boot Agent cannot receive boot filename

Such messages typically appear...when the system is trying to do a network boot.

That may happen because the CMOS battery needs to be replaced...in some systems, such will make the system return to default boot options.

I would go into the BIOS and see what the first boot device is...if it's not the hard drive, try to change it and save the changes...then try to boot.

If the change doesn't hold or cannot be accomplished...I would replace the CMOS battery.

A:Error message at boot up: Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert boot...

The first thing you are going to need to do is to purchase and install a hdd.
 
Newegg has a Western Digital 1TB hdd for $69.99 plus tax and shipping. 
 
You will then need to install Windows Home Premium 64-bit.  You can download a ISO image of your operating system here.
 
You will need to burn the ISO image to a DVD to create a bootable installation disc.  
 
How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.  
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.
 

 
5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.
 

 
6.  After the image has completed being burned click on Close.
 
If you need a tutorial for installing the operating system, ask me and I'll help with that.
 
After you have installed the operating system you will need to download and install the drivers.  You can download these at Product Support, Dell US.  When the site opens you will need to choose your operating system (MS Windows 7 64-bit), the drivers download list will fill below.
 
As for RAM.  I have a personal preference for Crucial.  They have a 8GB kit (4GB x 2) for $83.99 plus tax and shipping.

I have Win XP Media Edition....Today my computer started shutting down by itself. So, I remebered a friend advising me the MSSE was not really up to date on its protections. Not sure...so downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a full scan.

I found SpamTool.Agent, Trojan.Agent, and 2 Rootkit.Agent infections.

My research lead me to this site to get rkille.exe, rkill.com, etc.

How do I find this and then the tdss killer?

Other sites mention this and want you to sign on with them. But, I heard this was a free download from bleeping computer? Where can I find it?

A:Computer keeps freezing at Windows XP logo/boot screen during start-up! What to do?

Hi .Well...if you can boot into safe mode while being unable to boot normally...that focuses attention on some driver which cannot/does not load normally (probably because it's damaged).Try the following from safe mode:Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.When scanning is done, Edit/Select All.Then File/Save Selected Items.Save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.Louis

I get this error on startup and it's driving me nuts, i think its because my hard drive is selected as the boot device. Looked on google about others with same problem and tried changing the reboot device but i'm a complete computer noob i don't even understand half on the solutions because i don't understand the jargon they are using SSD and HHD for example. Lot's of the solutions seem to involve being able to access files and such on the computer but i can't get on to my computer to be able to access anything. Any help would be appreciated and please, explain like i'm five. Thanks in advance, yaz.

I need help spotting a problem. In the screenshot of the Start Menu folder there's a MinimServer.lnk, which is supposed to load to the sys tray during computer startup. Prior to doing some unsuccesful system restores and undo's for another problem yesterday, it was opening MinimServer at startup. Now it doesn't and I can't figure out why. OTOH, if I click on either the desktop icon (Properties pictured), the folder lnk file or the target .jar file directly, it opens in the sys tray. Which is why I'm puzzled: if it opens from the link, why not from the Start Menu. Tried reinstall, but no difference. Everything else there starts. Any ideas? Thanks,
