SOURCE: DISK BOOT FAILURE
If you reinstalled the memory correctly it should fire right back up. But try this, when press the power button, hit delete and go to set up, under PC management find the Boot Order String, select the Floppy as the first device if you have one, the Hard drive as the second Device and the CD/DVD as the last device. Should go straight to the hard drive as the primary boot device. Hope this helps.

sounds like a hard disk drive problem. If you are comfortable with working inside your computer, you can open the case and remove the cables to the hard disk, and re-connect them again firmly.

SOURCE: my laptop says a disk
"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.

Any system can be recovered, although it depends on what is wrong.. this error can mean no info on the hard disk, or damaged hd...more than likely whoever had the computer erased it for data's sake...I would've...get an os and load it.

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.
