I have a Toshiba NB305 and when I press the start button it goes to the Toshiba startup screen the reads PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, Check Cable. Is there any way to fix this??


Media test is either hdd, dvd or RAM issues. Make sure the cables are connected properly or remove each piece of hardware until the issue stops and replace the faulty part.

This indicates hard drive issues, or windows files have been corrupted. If you have a backup disk try and load windows, no change! have the hard drive tested for possible replacement.

My Toshiba satlelite A105 will not boot up , comes up on screen black says pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable pxe-mof: exiting intel boot agent operating system not found


Go into SETUP (F2, DEL, Cntl-S or somesuch at boot time - or hold F1 key down and force and error and then change your BOOT order to CDROM, HDD. It is Currently NETWORK, CDROM, HDD or the like.

PXE is Network directed bootup, and your LAN connection is waiting or the proper code or instruction or server. You need to turn that off, and BIOS SETUP is where to do it ;-)

Hope that helps

The note bock dosn't work it's make restart i tray safe mode &set


You'll need to contact Toshiba, plus it'd be illegal for me to do that without knowing more about the laptop. It could be stolen and you could be wanting to prep it for free to be sold. Sorry mate. I've seen it before.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable


check your harddrive, is it detected in bios ?
if no, it could be motherboard or hdd, but most of the time is hdd problem, so just replace it.
if yes, your operating system is corrupt, so you can reload your operating system.
