Re: error message on my broadcom
PXE errors (Also known as Pixie errors) occurs when the system bios setup is configured to attempt to boot to the network card (an option used in some networks to load system images)
You can boot to the system setup (F2 at Dell screen) and make sure the HDD is 1st in the boot sequence and *** if there is a setting for the network card to turn off PXE (Usually they the following options (ON, OFF, ON W/PXE, select the ON option)
If the system is failing to boot to the hard drive at all, this can be a sympton of a failing hard disk drive. You can try and confirm this by booting to the HDD diagnostic on the F12 on time boot menu or boot to the Dell Resource CD and run diags from it. If the HDD fails diagnostics, it definitely needs to be replaced. If the diags pass, it is no guarantee that the drive is good though, just an indication that no fault was found.

If you have a spike in the power, unplug, remove the battery, then hold the power button down for 1min or 60s, to release any built up shock power. then insert the battery, (no power cord) push and hold power button for 1 -2 - 3 s. release and see what happens.. now what OS is installed on the HDD. and check the BIOS to see how the boot sequence is set... seems your error show you set to boot to NetWork not HDD
Your computer seems to have problem locating your HDD. Or the other issue could be your boot drive selection on boot up. Try selecting your boot drive in CMOS setup by either pressing "del" key, "F12", "F2", or informed by your computer. This should take you to the CMOS setup. Find "Boot priority" and give your HDD the 1st choice. Also make sure the computer sees your HDD. This should be under "configuration". You also need to check you CMOS battery, this is a button cell on the mother board. If this battery run out of power the CMOS memory cannot be saved and go back to factory default, where the HDD is not known. Please make note of all the changes you have made, so that if you made changes which you shouldn't have, than you can trace back your steps and correct it. If the above suggestion shouldn't work you may need to consider changing the Mother Board. PXE boot is a network boot to explain generally. You need to have a network and a domain hosting your boot systems. If you want to know in detail go to this link http://www.howtogeek.com/57601/what-is-network-booting-pxe-and-how-can-you-use-it/ .

The keyboard needs replacing. Replacement keyboard for your laptop maybe available from this WEB site. PXE-E61 ERROR 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.
This error is a result of your computer not finding the operating system. This is usually the case when the hard drive has failed. You will need to take the computer to a technician to replace the hard drive and have windows reinstalled.
It goes to a network boot rather than booting straight to the HDD. restart your computer and press f2 immediatley. you are now on the BIOS page. check if your hard drive is detected and if not call Lenovo to have it replaced/repaired. if it is detected, after the PXE error, your computer should boot up just fine.
What is your computer brand?
Just turn it on and keep pressing esc or delete or F2 key (depending on the model. But yuo can try any of them. This will take you into the bios screen. In the bios check if hdd is detected. If not - replace HDD>if yes > reset bios to defaults and start recovery (using supplied RDVDs or Recovery partition.
You will find exact instructions in user manual.t
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.
