START PXE OVER IPV4 - Help!

Hi,

I have a Dell inspiron PC with 8GB ram and W10. The machine has been bullet proof.

Recently, I decided to upgrade my RAM from 8 to 16 GB. However, when I tried to boot up I experienced the following message; (Black Screen)

START PXE OVER 1PV4 (and then) START PXE OVER IPV6 (and then) Auto Repair (doesn't repair!).

I removed the new memory but the problem continues.  It is sometimes temporarily resolved by switching off the machine and reseating the original memory card from one slot to the other.

Searching on line for a solution, it has been suggested that changes have been made in the Boot Menu that need reconfiguring or that I should disable IPV4 and IPV6 and that will solve the problem.

I’ve tried both of these options and nothing has worked.

Boot Menu order is; SAMSUNG, Ipv4, Ipv6, Windows Boot Manager.

I don’t know what has happened but I’d certainly appreciate a way to resolve it.

Thanks

Steve

Sounds like a cable may be pressing against an installed component and unseating it.  Re-seat cards, RAM modules, heat sink, CPU fan, chassis fan, etc. Make sure all cables are fully/firmly connected to motherboard, fans, drives etc, and not hitting any component when the case is being closed.

As for not booting from USB, look in BIOS setup to see if there's an option to allow USB booting and enable it. Then try booting from USB again, just to make sure that will work.

What model PC?  Always include that on any initial problem post.

IPV is boot over LAN.  In your case its failing to boot the Samsung and thus trying to boot IPV.

Fix the Samsung booting problem.  Whether just reseating the Samsung or at worst replace it.

Apologies and thank you for your time.

It an Inspiron 3650 - Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6400 CPU @ 2.70GHz, 2712 Mhz, 4 Core, 4 Logical Processor.

I am tryin to fix the samsung booting problem. Reseating the samung helped initially but the problem came back.

I'm not sure about the need to replace the SSD. Surely there are other options to consider first?

Can you provide any more info please?

Thanks

Since this apparently happened after you were inside and upgraded memory I would suspect a cable/connector was unintentionally disturbed.  First thing reseat the data connector for the Samsung at the motherboard end (you say you reseated the Samsung so I assume at the Samsung end).  Check other cables and make sure they are fully seated.

Whether or not related, Windows Boot Manager is my first boot device in the BIOS.

One other thing to try, CMOS Memory reset (hard BIOS reset).  Power off PC, disconnect the AC power cord from power supply, press power button for 10 seconds to drain any residual power.  Open the case and locate the 2032 coin cell battery on the motherboard. Remove battery for at least 5 minutes. Reinstall battery, reconnect AC power cord.  Power PC on and see if this helps.

Dear Fireberd,

Thank you again for taking the time and trouble to help me out.

Your email;

I think your observation is spot on. However, I have never been able to identify which cable it could be. I’ve tried all of them in as much as I can, I wasn’t able to find any rogue wiring. However, I will check the SSD at the motherboard end and see if that makes a difference.

Whether or not related, Windows Boot Manager is my first boot device in the BIOS”.

Thank you, I can reconfigure that. However, the problem does cause the boot order to change. Good to know that Boot Manager should be first though.

I will try this too.

Thank you again.

I will give these options a try and report back.

All this from simply trying to add some RAM!

@fireberd is correct. Windows Boot Manager should be first in the boot list.

Do you know the new RAM module is compatible with both this motherboard and with the original module that's installed?

Fireberd already mentioned it, so have you tried clearing BIOS by removing the motherboard battery and pressing/holding the PC's power button for ~30 sec, with only the original RAM module installed in the slot closest to the CPU?

And what happens if you swap the new module into the 1st slot from CPU and clear BIOS by removing the battery and pressing/holding the power button?

BTW: You may need to install a fresh battery before going too much further....

Dear Ron,

Thank you for also taking the time to assist.

Your email;

Acknowledged. I will rectify this and see what happens.

Do you know [if] the new RAM module is compatible with both this motherboard and with the original module that's installed”.?

The RAM should have been compatible in as much as I asked the right questions of the right suppliers and got what I thought to be a suitable replacement. However, this was new RAM and the existing was old RAM. I’m now given to understand that I should have purchased 2 identical RAM which should may have prevented the problem.

When the problem occurred, I sent the new RAM back and just kept hold of the old one.

However, I have found that removing the RAM from slot 2 to 1 or the other way around, will help restart the machine. For a while. Until the problem starts again.

I will get one and report back.

Thanks again and kind regards

Gentlemen,

 

May I ask;

Removing the CMOS battery as described hard resets the motherboard/bios back to default settings?

My SSD was installed as a later upgrade.

Will a hard reset cause problems with how my machine is now configured?

Thanks

Steve
