0xa 0000000 is a hard drive error .. either your controller or your hard drive has failed ..

First ther was a error message, then the pc make nothing.


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

My laptop isnt working.as soon as u turn it on a black screen comes up and the message display says PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM!! how can i fix it


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.

At startup : PXE-E16 : Media test failure,


Sounds like a disk failure. I use a product called Spinrite that has more times than not brought disk backonline. If it is a hardware (controller board) failure you are looking at getting a new disk. Spinrite is alittle pricey but well worth it if you own multiple PC. It helps with disk health as well.

If you see the disk in Bios I would give spinrite a chance to recover sector.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable Pxe-M0f: Exiting Broadco


PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable (of the HARD DISK pls)

pls first check the hard disk seated in the bottom left side of ur notebook u have to take out the 7 or 8 screws first and then take take it out by pulling the connector gently and try to re seat or re fit the hard disk so connector can seat firmly in hard disk and then power up ur notebook if Error persists

then sorry to tell u my friend that ur Hard disk has CRASHED and not giving up files for OS loading kindly replace ur HARD DRIVE and restore ur OS thru backup disk u got

Pls take care of ur notebook from bumps and falls and hard impacts during operation and carrying bcoz the disk inside the HDD is very sensitive and gets damaged easily by impacts

pls rate me FIXYA for my diagnosis

Error Message: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable


Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
