insert the bootable disk into your cd ROM.Restart the Laptop and goto your bios setup to change the first boot to CD/DVD ROM.save it and exit.it will ask you to press any key to boot from CD/DVD ROM.press and follow the wizard instruction
PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).
PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot:
1.Go to Bios Settings 2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option. 3.Save The configuration
Is the hardware listed in the BIOS? When the computer first starts up hit a key to get in the BIOS (Esc, F2 or F10 are most likely). If it's not listed in the BIOS then it's likely a hardware problem. Try checking the connections to make sure it's plugged in and getting power.
If it is listed in the BIOS, it's likely a problem within Windows. Check Acer's website for known issues with the cd-rom.
My Aspire 5100 not only looses the cdrom but also the hard drive! It sometimes beeps 3 times.. I'd go into set-up (BIOS) and niether the hard drive or dvd would be listed.. As a last resort, I flashed the motherboard bios with the latest version from Acer and so far the problem hasn't returned. I also set the laptop to hibernate after 30 minutes of non use when both on battery or on ac power. Reason? My problem always started when I left my laptop unattended for some time. When I'd return, the computer would be off.. not asleep or hibernating, but off - even though it was set to never turn off in the power settings in windows. When I'd turn it back on, that is when the hard drive and dvd rom would vanish in the BIOS. So as an added precaution, I set the laptop to always hibernate after 30 minutes.. Like I say, so far so good..
