    Hey everyone, I really need someones help and will be eternally in debt to whoever helps me.

    I am the owner of a Compaq Evo D500 with 1.8 ghz processor with 400 mhz fsb. Recently I purchased a new 2.8 ghz also 400 mhz fsb. When I installed there was a 1801 microcode error, and so I needed to upgrade my bios from 2.11 to 3.04 using the upgrade I got from HP's website.

    Now when I start the computer here is what is displayed.

    Initializing intel(r) boot agent version 4.1.08
    PXE 2.1 Build 083 (wfm 2.0), RPL V2.74

    **** Then I press F1 to boot*** ... and it says

    PXE-E61 Media test failure, Check cable
    PXE-M0F Exiting Intel Boot Agent

    Non-System disk or disk error
    Replace and strike any key when ready


    Unfortunately I don't have a disk in the floppy drive. And when I go to system preferences the bios isn't even recognizing my hard disk or my floppy. So when I try to flash the bios with a floppy nothing happens. At this point I'll try anything.

    Can anyone give me any suggestions?
    greatly appreciated.
    Charlie.
