Question about Toshiba Satellite A1O A15 A20 A25 A30 A35 A40 A45 Series 15 inch LCD Display- LP150X06 CD-ROM Drive

2 Answers

I have a laptop Toshiba satellite A30. I have a black screen and some text on it like: PXE-E61 MediaTest Failure PXE-M0F Exiting PXE ROM and it goes continiously, I can't go any further. When I was loaded recovery disk it showed me "there is no such disk". I suspect that my HDD is crashed. Or may be there is something else?

Hi dandi2004,
Looking at your last question - cheap is a relative thing... You can find replacement internal HDDs at places like Maplins stores or online, even at Play.com. I'm NOT saying these places are cheap, just that you can take a first look at what's available and get an idea of price ranges, for different makes, GB, rpm etc, if that's what you're asking.

Media test failure means that your boot drive has failed ie your hard drive has failed to boot....could be one of a number of reasons
1 hard drive connection could be loose - try taking out the hard drive and reinstalling it
2 the boot sector on the hard drive is corrupt or damaged - try booting off a windows disk and running chkdsk or fixboot command
3 partition table is corrupt - try booting off windows cd and running chkdsk /p from command prompt
4 Hard drive has failed - if machine is still under warranty return for repair if not install new hard drive and reload op system from recovery disks

When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

Toshiba m35x-s163 will not boot


Hi there, you will need to go into the BIOS page (usually the Del key or an Function (F) key at the Toshiba logo). You will need to change the boot order from network/lan to the Hard Drive. Its pretty straight forward mate.

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.
