I had that and one of my ram modules was finished. Take it apart as much as you can and check everything is firmly in place. you can get new ram but it may not be ram it could be anything loose cable failure is the clue. As laptopps get bounced a lot you could well be lucky. Remove battery and power and take your jewelry off I use disposable gloves so I dont cause any shorts. While you are in there give your fan a clean. good luck.

#1. Verify there are no disks in the floppy or CD drive.

Media test faiture, check cable error message ,


The error is related to your network interface card. In a lot of laptops this is integrated to the motherboard and can't be switched out at home. You will need to take the laptop in for service to have the card replaced.

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.
