The message is the laptops way of saying that it has looked for an operating system and could not find one. The PXE rom message refers to it trying to find a network boot record.

Test this by checking your Bios settings, in the boot order, see that the CDRom is set to 1st boot, then the second bot is the HDD, If the thing will not boot. Check you can see that the laptop "sees" the boot devices, if it does not, you have a problem, as it looks like the controllers are damaged.

If it Does find the boot devices, but it still defaults to a network boot, there is either NO OS on the hard drive, or it has been corrupted.

Use the Vista DVD to re-install Windows (you may be lucky enough to get away with a repair installation), after you have reinstalled windows, the drivers etc can be found on Acer's site quite easily

It is trying to boot from the network, basically from the internet cable that can be plugged in. If you enter the bios you can typically disable the PXE boot option so it won't show up again.

It is trying to bbot up using network boot because it cannot find OS on the hard drive, you can turn off the network in the BIOS setup page, but more likely you have problem with the hard drive or the OS is corrupted.

Hello higgstwiligh,

The above message is mainly informational and doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. The acronym 'PXE' stands for Preboot Execution Environment. It's an environment to bootstrap computers using a network interface card. Usually the reboot is done by a remote computer on a LAN (Local rea Network). The Realtek NIC (Network Interface Card) somehow expected a PXE boot to be taking place when the computer was restarting. One solution is to restart the computer and go to the boot menu (F2 on some systems) and choose to boot from the master drive.

*Here's a link to a good article explaining what PXE is: http://www.search.com/reference/Preboot_Execution_Environment

Have a great day,

My acer aspire 5315 is stuck n i have no disk to reformat


the computer can't detect the hard drive to start from it or, then theres a problem with your windows. Use the recovery discs or windows setup cd to try to install windows to the computer again to fix the problem. Let me know how that goes. Thanks

Aspire 5315, no bootable device, PXE-E61 media test failure,


With any standard laptop (your Aspire included) the default boot disk should be set to drive C:
If the system is not finding drive C:, the boot sector may be damage or the drive may have failed completely.
Depending on your operating system (probably Win XP for this one) you can make a boot disk on a friend's optical drive and change the boot sequence in the BIOS setup to your optical drive. Just make sure the disk you've made is compatible with the drive in your Aspire; such as CD - DVD+-, etc.
Once you can get some kind of prompt, either from a basic Desktop or just E:\ from your boot CD, try typing in "C:" (without the quotes) to see if it is accessible. If not, the drive may be bad.
If the drive is still readable, you have more work to do to restore the damaged boot sector.

PXE-E61:Media Test Failure


you got that error message because your harddrive isnot detected so it try to boot from network and you don't have OS in the network.

Most of the time is your hdd is dead. In some cases the motherboard is dead.

You can replace your hdd.
for OS (vista vs XP), if you have enough rams and high cpu, you should install vista, but for me, I prefer XP.
for the price, you should call microsoft seller.
