    I sounds like your MBR (Master Boot Record) is corrupted, which is very bad. Hopefully, when you first received the computer, you created a recovery disk or USB, as that is the easy way to fix it. If not, then you are looking at a complete re-install of your OS.

    Dear Harisheldon,
    Thanks for your reply. I have not created a recovery disk or USB when I brought my laptop. So in this case if I require to go for complete re-installation of OS is it possible to get my existing data in all drive C:, D:, F: drives by any possible way.

    If it is on the primary hard drive, no. That is why I never save my documents on the hard drive that has the OS on it. Since you are stating that you have three drives, C, D, F, I am going to guess that one is the main hard drive with the OS, that would be the C drive.  The D drive could be your DVD drive.  As to your F drive, I am guessing that you have an external drive plugged in.  If you data is n this drive, you are good.  If it is on the C drive, sorry...

    If your folders/ files on other than c drive that is on d/ f drive (if there is no cd/dvd drive) then you can only install the OS on c drive. And your files/ folders are intact on d/f drive. But don't touch or do anything on the same drives while installing OS on c drive. If the case like that, all the files/ folders on c drive there is still chance to save them. You just, reinstall OS without format or change any drive letter, that is just choose the same drive windows folder to re-install the OS, without format and keep same size/ file system as it was erstwhile. If it works, or at least you login then you can take all necessary backups and can do fresh install. Just a try that's all. Also repair from windows cd/dvd/ usb may work.

    Dear Subhendu, I changed the boot priority as first hard disk, second CD ROM, Third Floppy disk, fourth USB, fourth network drive. But same result appearing. CLIENT MAC ADDR: 78 2B CB EB CB DC GUID: 444!
    PXE EA8: Network boot canceled by keystroke
    PXE-MBF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM
    Rebbot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device.
    I am using my laptop since past 4 years with CD ROM as first and Hard disk as second order but never had these start up issues.
    Pls advice.

    What I did, I made USB drive as a first to boot in order then hard disk, cd ROM, floppy disk, network drive and attach external hard disk through USB and started my laptop. It worked, I could able to enter into windows and took back up of all important data from C drive.

    Just disable the fourth boot sequence as network drive, and see what happens. Also check either nic is OK or not.
