    I get the same message on my Dell Inspiron 710M, BUT, the computer still boots up normally. In fact, I just wiped my HD and reinstalled everything as a matter of normal practice, but it still shows up anyway. Don't know why...

Your unit is telling you that there is a cable problem (between HDD & MoBo) try a new one or if you have another drive with same cable swop over.

Failure hdd at startup


This error indicates the hard drive is not detected or not plugged in. Open the case and see if the hard drive cabling is connected. Some SATA cables don't stay connected particularly if the cables do not latch properly.

"PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE"
This means that the motherboard and harddrive are not communicating correctly, there is no data cable to connect the harddrive to the motherboard on a laptop the harddrive connecting plug is soldered directly to the the motherboard.
Either your harddrive is dying, or your motherboard has gone faulty. Laptop repairs are quite involved, if you are not familiar with taking laptops apart I would suggest you get profesional help with this problem.
If you want to have a go yourself I can point you in the direction of websites I use when doing laptop repairs.
