You need to open the case (make sure power and everything is unplugged), which if slightly harder on a All-in-one PC. But when you do. you'll see a hard drive (google images) you need to unplug it from its cable and replace it with a new one. And depending on the problem, you could try get it fixed, take it to a repair shop, if not, transfer all your data onto the new hard drive by mirroring it. Then place the new hard disk in place of the old one.

Hey 72cobrajet,

If you are receiving this kind of error message, it can often be an indicator that a self-diagnostic tool has determined that your computer may be suffering from a hardware failure.

Whenever your computer starts up, it performs a self-test to ensure that everything is working properly. If your computer detects anything out of the ordinary, it generally prompts you with an error message indicating what the problem may be.

While your computer may seem to function normally at this time, I would strongly suggest backing up any necessary information as soon as possible to avoid any potential loss.

In some instances, you may be able to determine the exact reason why you are receiving an error message by using a software tool developed by either Microsoft or the hard drive manufacturer itself. Please keep in mind however, that you may receive more detailed and product-specific support when using a manufacturer-developed diagnostic utility over Microsoft's CHKDSK.

If you are unsure how to use any these programs and are still under the manufacturer's warranty, you may wish to contact HP directly for further assistance. Additionally, if you would prefer to not work directly with HP, you may always bring your computer into your local Best Buy™ store for warranty service and support.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: Have an HP pavillion A1540n. after power up,

Sometimes it is easier to install a new hard disk and reinstall Windows.
Then either connect the old hard drive as a slave drive (don't forget to set the jumper on this drive as a slave). The other way is to connect the old hard drive to a USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. this computer will see it as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is still functioning).
Either way you can download and backup your files.

Operating system not found


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.The hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installedand the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get afunctioning computer/laptop again.

Dell Inspiron Error Msg 2000-0141 cannot detect Hard Drive


You might have a hard drive crash, Meaning the hard drive needs to be changed out in it.

This happends over time,heat,AGE and all other sorts of occurances. Hard drives to not last! period! The only fix here is to have the hard drive replaced with new. Now in this model the hard drive should be on the bottem of the unit under a cover. you take a screw driver and open that hatch and take the hard drive out. You can bring that to a local best buy or computer shop and have a replacement put in Around $89-150 bucks depending on size you get and brand.

Thanks I hope this helps you out please do be considerate and leave postive feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

My computer keeps saying i hace bad sectors


You'll want to back up your files while you still have the chance to do so. Then you'll want to look into getting yourself another hard drive, obviously.

GETTING ON MY LAPTP: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable


This error message can be caused by a faulty connection to the hard drive or a faulty hard drive or a faulty disk controller.
Go into the BIOS configuration to see if it has detected the hard drive, if it is not detected that is why the laptop won't bootup.
To confirm or check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port (you may need assistance from a computer savy friend).
If this computer cannot see this as an external drive then it is faulty. If the computer can see this drive as an external drive and you can open the folders and files on the hard disk then the hard drive is OK and the fault is probably a faulty disk controller on the laptop. A faulty disk controller is part of the motherboard and the only fix is a replacement motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution and it may be better to put your money towards a new laptop.

I am sure that noone wants to tel you thins but when you go the Hard disk failer iminent that was so you woudl shut it down and transfer everything onto another disk. Once it crashes, such as your has, you cannot recover the data w/o very expensive equiptment or costly contracting out the HD for data recover.      About the only thing that you can do now is replace the hard drive, download a   recovery disk from HP,if one is available, for your model, If you have not already made one, and reinstall the software from the disk.
