Re: PXe-e61 media test failure on my packard bell desk...
Disable booting up to network device. If it cant find the HD then it will try the next device, which is usually the network device. If it says No Operating System Found, then there is a problem with your HD and you will need either replace, repair, or restore.

The system is not finding any bootable media (Hard Drive) and is attempting to boot via the network card (PXE Boot) the error message is saying that there is not PXE network to boot from and it is exiting the process.

This is a normal set of messages for a computer that is configured to attempt to boot off of a network server. Most home computers and laptops don't normally do this. If you never saw this before, booting from the network is probably the last try the computer makes before giving up. Basicially it is telling you that there is no valid boot device to start the computer from. It used to use your hard drive, but now it cannot because it has been disabled in the BIOS or the hard drive has died. You can check this by hitting the key to enter the BIOS Setup program (generally F10 or Del, it tells you when it is booting up) and making sure that the system does see your hard drive properly in the BIOS and ensuring that it is either first or second in the boot order.
You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote

in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted
directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the
laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available
device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a
remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting
PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive
and reinstall the operating system.
Save your self a lot of reading, do this first.
Check in BIOS rom for start up sequence and check if there is an
asterist (!) in front of the hdd. If there is, it’s disabled. Select
the hdd and press shift key plus “1′ This removes the ! and you can
then use the hdd to re-format or….
