    Welp needed! Laptop problems..

    I took the hard drive of my laptop to my ps3 a year ago, and now I've reseted it to windows again to use on my laptop while my desktop pc is currently broken.

    After getting Windows back on hard drive, my pc does a strange error when I turn it on.

    Says Exiting Intel PXE ROM.


    I made sure on the "Boot" panel of BIOS that HDD was 1 and TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633F (PM) was 2. Also when internet searching this, I read that booting the computer while holding 0 would start some sort of hidden recovery. I tried a few times and it would just load into the PXE-MOF error and beep really loud.

    The computer is relatively new. Maybe 3 years and hasn't had any viruses or any other problems of the sort. I'm really short on money right now, I'm a full time student, and was wondering if any one had a lead to what I should do next? Thank you.


    Ps: Should I open my laptop and remove the baterry and put it again?

    Let me get this straight before I dive in:
    You took out your old laptop HDD, and used it in your PS3 for extra storage, correct? If so, did you format it beforehand?
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Did you re-install Windows though? As formatting it would wipe the OS clean, preventing it from booting to anything past the Bios.

    From what I've gathered, the issue isn't to do with the OS, but the Drive itself. Have you removed and re-inserted the drive? I know it sounds silly, but it's entirely possible that there's a bad connection, and it isn't being properly recognized. Do you have any other computers, or friend's computers you can test the drive in?

    What's the model of both your desktop and laptop? If the chipsets of the Motherboards aren't the same, you can run into a lot, and I mean a lot of compatibility issues.

    Darn, I'm always disappointed when I can't fix something. Hope you have luck figuring out the problem and getting it fixed.
