Gateway computer will not boot.
It was hung up on Windows "Welcome" screen after I tried to login. I had to power down and restart. Now it will not boot.
After the "Gateway" screen it says:

Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v12.2.0
Copyright (C) 2000-2009 Broadcom Corporation
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

Any help is appreciated

Thank you Phillip,

I confirmed my hard drive is still alive by removing it and plugging it into another machine. I was able to read files off of it without any issue.

I'm having problems trying to recover Windows. From what I've read I have to hold down Alt+F10 while the computer is starting. When I try this the computer just beeps at me and restarts. Then the same message as above comes up.

Any advice for how to recover?

Thanks in advance.
