Toshiba nb300 windows starter won't boot. PXE-E61 media test failure. check cable.


If your computer is working fine, then disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, that's why the media test failure is displayed. It's usually used to load an OS image from network.


For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.
If there is a problem (won't boot) then it lost communications to hard drive, and you need to check BIOS for hard drive.

The system is not finding any bootable media (Hard Drive) and is attempting to boot via the network card (PXE Boot) the error message is saying that there is not PXE network to boot from and it is exiting the process.
Generally, this is caused by a hard Drive failure. Reseat the drive and or drive connections and see if the system will find the hard drive.
Generally, a Hard drive failure

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.

When turning my laptop on i get a message media test failure


You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

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.
