Question about Toshiba Satellite P25-S507 Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba Satellite P25 will no longer boot up but keeps running the following text. RTL8139(x)/8130/810X PCI ethernet controller v2.13 (020326) PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable PXE M0F: exiting PXE ROM

    The original drive failed. Bought a new Western Digital 120 GB Scorpio drive that is supposed to be compatible with Toshiba Satellite P25-S507. Installed it, but getting PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. BIOS setup screen recognizes the drive. Suspect that maybe the BIOS can't deal with a hard drive this size, original drive was only 60 GB. Would like to know how to replace BIOS if possible or what other fixes may be.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am tempted to think that the CMOS/BIOS could not detect the internal hard disk and therefore is booting from the LAN. Pls reboot and enter CMOS/BIOS setup. Thereafter determine if the computer could detect the hard disk either auto or manually.

If the above solution has merit, pls click on my "Ask Me" to explore additional options, postback how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Computer does not boot up

Sounds like the computer cannot find your hard drive and is looking for other means to boot the machine. It first is looking for a network hard drive, then it is looking at the DVD. When that fails it is asking you to check the computer for hardware errors. Check to make sure the hard drive is seated in it's compartment. The DV6000 has an adapter that fits on the end of its SATA drive and sometimes that adapter can wiggle loose from the contacts. Just take the hard drive out and then re-seat it to the connector. In most cases it is either a loose connection or the hard drive has suffered a failure.

SOURCE: I have a realtek RTL8139{x}/8130/810x PCI FAST

If you use ethernet, then your connection, possibly the cable, is not working.

IF you don't use the ethernet connection, and have no cable plugged in for ethernet, the warning is NORMAL.

SOURCE: windows dont come up.

I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.

SOURCE: PXE-E61 : media test failure, check For Realtek

Are you on a company network ?

As I said if you are, then booting from a network may be part of your company system.

If it is just a home computer then you have other issues which could range from something as simple as a faulty hard drive cable to a dead hard drive.

If it is a company computer on a full lan then turn boot from network back on and see if it will boot. if not then te server that has the boot source may have an error or the lan may have issues.

The system is not longer detecting your hard disk drive. You can try removing and re-seating the hard drive (Usually just a couple screws involved in removing the hard drive) and see if it detects. More than likely, the drive has failed, you will need to get a new drive and re-load Windows and all drivers and applications.
If still under warranty, contact Toshiba support

Go into the BIOS and disable the Option: Network Boot ROM. This message will show, because the system is trying to boot from your Ethernet ROM.
