    My mother has this model and it will not boot up. I'm not sure the message she got was the same. She called the help desk and they told her the hd was bad. I would like to replace it. Is there a replacement hd I can get that is relatively easy to install that I could do myself? I have minimal experience though have replaced a couple of dvd drives. THanks.

If the bios is showing no ide, means that your ide hard drive is not being detected.
This can be caused by some motherboard failure, some bad cable connection or caddie connection or bad hard drive.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable


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. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is 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.

Usually it means your hard drive has crashed.
The PXE is your computer trying to connect to a network server (virtual hard drive).
Did you have any important files on the computer?

Wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop


Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.

I have a problem geting my recovery disc to work in my compaq presario 2200 laptop, as i have just installed a new harddrive iam getting a PXE-E61: Media test failure and PXE-M0F Exiting PXE-ROM. ldygolfer


You need to change the boot order in the bios.

When you start the computer screen should prompt you at the bottom with something like:

F2 or F10 to enter setup.

Once you're in the bios, change the boot order to cd / dvd first.

Right now it's trying to boot through the network, that's why you're getting that message.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Best of Luck!

When turning my laptop on i get a message media test failure


You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive 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.

Error Message: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable


Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
