Hi JOJO0803,

Based from the error message you're getting it sounds to me that your problem there is not software related but is more hardware in nature.Since you're getting a message "disk read error occurred IDE#0" this pertains to a problem with the hard drive itself. It's possible that your hard drive developed bad sectors or errors on the disc itself.

So to be sure I would recommend that you run the hardware diagnostics for your laptop computer especially the one for the hard drive since you're getting this message. If the hard drive fails the test or any other part fails in the test, contact your techsupport and ask for replacement parts if your PC is still under warranty. Otherwise you may have to buy parts for your laptop.

If the hard drive tests passed and all the other hardware tests also passed then you may proceed to troubeshoot the software using the Windows XP Home CD. Boot from the WinXP Home CD, and you get to the setup screen, choose "R" for recovery console and then on the prompt type "CHKDSK /R" let it run, it may take a while. afterwards it will bring you back to the prompt then type EXIT and it will reboot the system, see if that fixes the problem. Worst case scenario you may have to format then reinstall Windows XP again to fix this problem.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

The keyboard needs replacing. Replacement keyboard for your laptop maybe available from this WEB site.
PXE-E61 ERROR
The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Hi Jon.

Go into the BIOS confuguration by pressing the F2 key as the laptop starts up and set the BIOS to its default configuration. Save the changes by pressing the F10 key or save in the BIOS menu. The computer will restart so see if that has made any difference.
If you still get the same IDE #0 error then the hard drive is ready for failing. A replacement hard drive will not cost much at all.
Seeing as you have only spent $20 on the laptop in the first place you have got yourself a bargain there. Spend a liitle money on a new drive and OS then you could have a fully working laptop.

PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F


There are two things that could be a problem. The BIOS settings are corrupted, or the hard drive system has a problem. In order to fix the BIOS problem, at boot up you'd hit F2 (or whatever key is required to enter setup). Get some paper and pencil and go through the BIOS pages and mark down anything that is not a default setting. Find the location to reset the BIOS to default settings and perform this action. This will overwrite your BIOS settings and remove any corrupted data. Now, when you reboot, go back into the setup and set all of the settings to the choices you marked down before.

If this does not fix your problem, your hard drive control system has a problem. It could be as simple as a ribbon cable being loose or as bad as the controller section on the motherboard has gone out. Another possibility is the hard drive has given up and needs to be replaced.
