First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Check your BIOS and ensure the proper boot device is selected and enabled.(Look for the default boot device. Select the primary hard drive and save.)

Media test failure


This error message may appear when the computer BIOS is set to boot from a network and cannot find a bootable operating system on the network or on any of the storage devices included in the notebook PC's boot path.
So, if you have any USB sticks or attached HDD's that do not have an install image remove them and reboot.
If the HDD has an operating system installed and it still won't work after removing any USB storage, check that the HDD is functioning properly.

Pxe-61 media test failure.check cable pxe-mof: existing pxe rom.loading drmk v8.00


This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard drive.
Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. We recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.
If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
Then try re-booting and tapping the f12 key which should start up a diagnostics page

It can't locate a working boot disc. Most likely lost communications with hard drive. Look in BIOS again to see it recognizes the drive. If not try re-seating / reconnecting drive.

Reboot and select proper boot device, pxe e61 media test failure check cable


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

I have purchased acer laptop when i am powering on to my laptop it showing media test faluir check cable and then showing error 22 please suggest me what should i do


Error code 22 usually points to a device that has not been enabled, media failure cable check is where the OS is looking for a boot drive such as a CD rom or hard drive boot record.

In order, try the following
1.) Remove any DVDs and usb devices from the laptop and try to reboot
2.) Under the laptop, there is an inspection hatch for the hard drive, remove and check if there is actually a hard drive installed, make sure it is firmly connected
3.) On boot up, access the Bios (might be F1 or Del or F10) and see if the DVD rom drive and the hard drive are listed in the bios and are set in the Boot order.
4.) If all the above check out, try inserting a Windows installation disc and see if the computer will try to boot from that (dont install windows, just go through the stages untiol it "finds" the drive, see if there is already an OS on the drive
5.) If there is not an OS on the drive, install windows, see if it works ok.

If the above do not work, please repost along with any other codes

Error message says PXE-E61:media test failure check cable. PXE-M0F:exiting broad com PXErom. Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key.


PXE errors occur when the system attempts to boot to the network adapter and it fails to find a bootable network connection. In most systems, this is due to the hard drive not being detected in the system. So, reseat the HDD and ensure it is seen in the BIOS. If it is not seen in the bios then it has most likely failed and needs replacement.
