Hi,
there are many chances of HDD boot sector gone dam.
do some work to know whats wrong--
boot your computer using another HDD and make your old HDD as a slave disk; if the old HDD is serched as a slave thats mean your HDD is fine.

for any question ask me.
Thanks for your question

When I turn on the PC the following message appears and my system goes turn off... For Realtek RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v2.13 PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting...


This error occurs when the BIOS finds no hard disk drive to boot from, and tries and fails at booting thru the network jack (PXE Boot is a network boot used in large corporations, usually to image a system.)
Reseat the hard disk drive in the system, then reset the bios defaults and see if the system will boot normally. You can also try running diagnostics (Fn + Power on a Dell)
Most likely scenario is that the hard disk drive has failed and you will need to replace it.

I have a w3622 and put in a new hard drive and tried to use the OS disk that came with the computer. what I get is PXE-E61: media test failure. check cable. Disk boot failure.insert system disk.


Hello,

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having. Try the following tips and lets see if we can get it up and running.

-Set the boot order in BIOS to boot from the disk drive first. In order to get to the BIOS, you will need to select BIOS option or Settings when the machine is booting up.

Most often, the above error is caused due to incorrect BIOS settings or a faulty hardware, such as hard disk. Sometimes, the error may also occur if the computer tries to boot from a device, on which it cannot find the required boot files. An improperly connected hard disk is also known to cause the same type of issue.


You should follow the below steps sequentially in order to isolate the cause and solve the issue:
  • Verify all the cable connections of the hard disk. An improper or loose connection is likely to be the reason, in case the hard disk has been recently installed or moved.
  • Check if no other storage device is connected to the computer. If it is, remove it.
  • Enter the BIOS setup when trying to start the computer and see if hard disk has been correctly setup and detected in BIOS. If the hard disk cannot be detected due to any reason, you should consider the next suggestion as it might be physical failure.

Regards,
G33k

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

Aspire One N214 Model # ZG5 keeps showing me a Acer screen before informing me that I have a Media test failure and that it has no bootable device. I have no boot disk it asks for, Please help me!


The media failure means either the hard disk has failed and therefore cannot boot up the notebook.
Try reseating the hard drive first, so it makes proper electrical contact. If it still fails to boot up, then go to the BIOS setup and check to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic program, if so then run this program to check the hard disk. If the hard disk is faulty, then a new hard disk is needed and install Windows on this hard disk plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs to get a working computer again.

This is often caused by either an incorrect setting in BIOS (usually the boot order) or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk.
Go into the BIOS and make sure the boot order is as follows: 1 CD-ROM; 2 Hard Disk; all the other disabled. Once you are sure of that try to boot again; if it's the same then the hard disk has died. If you have on it data that you can't lose boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/ and recover what you can (copy them to a USB stick).

Boot error always


Hello sir, hi your boot error can be caused by the following:
  1. Your IDE hard disk is not the first boot, and wrong available boot on the bios. Check your BIOS setup for proper boot device.
  2. Your IDE hard disk has bad serctors, since its P4, I estimate your drive to be 8 years or more. You may need to format the hard drive again and reinstall your OS (windows XP).
  3. IF your HD cannot be formated, or no amount of windows installation can be done on the disk, its time to replace it.
  4. Your IDE cannot be detected by the motherboard. check your BIOS configuration for proper hard disk setup.
  5. Your IDE hard drive and your CD drive are both master or both slave, set the hard disk to master and the CD drive to slave. The settings can be seen on the case of the HD and CD drive.
  6. Your IDE ribbon cable is bad.
  7. Your 4 pin molex power cable to the HD is loose.
If I miss out something, please let me know. thanks.

This usually indicates that there is a harddrive failure or problem with BIOS. When the machine is booting up, get into BIOS and check to make sure that it is recognizing the hard disk and that it is configured to use the hard disk as a boot device. If all that appears to be OK, you might want to try booting off of your Windows CD (go back into BIOS and set your CD player as the boot device). When you're booted up, check to see if you can read data from your hard disk. My guess is that you will not be able to, and that would indicate a hard drive failure. Newegg carries them at a very respectable price.
