It sounds like it could be a corrupt OS, or your hard drive could've decided to pack it in.
Before you panic - (been there/done that). Try to get your system to the boot menu by doing the following:
Turn on your system - once you see the logo, begin to tap the f8 key repeatedly until the boot menu appears. It will give you the option of "Last Known Good Configuration". Select that by using the arrow keys to move the highlight bar up (or down). Press enter - and wait. If there has been a corruption, it may take time.
If that fails, repeat the process and once you get to the menu, select SafeMode. It will probably fail as well but I have seen times when it boots through. If you are able to get into SafeMode, if that works, let me know and we can look at some preventative measures.

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.

It is trying to bbot up using network boot because it cannot find OS on the hard drive, you can turn off the network in the BIOS setup page, but more likely you have problem with the hard drive or the OS is corrupted.
Installing an operating system from one computer and inserting it into another computer will not work specially when they are from different manufacturers because the components in them are different.
The Windows install has to be done on the intended computer.
The media test failure error message refers to a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
hy i have your solution.its simple. the problem is remote network data entry that start in the bios systems, produce by a virus call downloader.trojan or bootable Tj.exe, normally the bios has to read it and it gives the error " media test faliurecheck cables",ir you dont repaired quickly your laptop or desktop eventually will not boot the windows att all, this have to be kill before that happens, First of all clean your pc with Trojan Remover and then do just a simple task restart your desktop or laptop and do not let it initiate windows just press F2 at the bios and go to the Bios program and then go to the tab name Bios and press F9 that means "default bios systems" and everything will change in your bios and when your desktop or pc restart it will never show that message again and your bios will initiate with no problems and the virus that put that into your pc will no longer control your bios system.
