Hey I have an Acer Aspire 1410, a netbook/notebook, which my small brother recently dropped from the bed. When I switched it on, the message "Check cable connection pxe-m0f exiting intel pxe rom no bootable device insert boot disk &press any key message" appeared on the screen. I've tried entering the BIOS Menu and adjust the settings but nothing seems to work. I ca'nt tell whether the harddrive exists. Please help me, it's a laptop I was given by a good friend to help me with my school work.

Chana, you probably have to take it to a shop. I noticed that your error mesage included the suggestion that you insert a repair disk. If you can borrow a legal copy of your operating system, insert it into the optical (DVD) drive and reboot. MAYBE it will take you to a repair menu.
But if you have hardware damage, and you probably do, you need to take it to a shop.
