When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.
The "media test failure" message usually occurs when it tries to boot from LAN instead of the hard drive. It most likely says something about an Intel/Marvell PXE Boot Agent. If it does, then you'll have to disable the LAN Boot ROM in the system setup boot configuration.
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your((motherboard to your hard drive))make sure they have a secure connection
and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty make sure all leads that
are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections
and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could
be faulty a computer
needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads
will end up with a computer errorif
this fails to fix the problem another
possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at
the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough
RAM random access memory to check what is running when your computer is running
scroll to the bottom toolbar right click select task manager applications and
processes if you see something you dont need running select end now to check
how much ram you have click start right click on my computer select properties
you will see all of your computers detailsanother way to check
how much RAM you have click start all programs accessories system tools system
imformation all of your computers imformation will be theretry uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run
type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix
any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this
will schedule on a restart don
This is common when there are corrupted boot files on your HDD or your HDD has failed. You need to boot to a windows CD and repair your startup files.
Alternatively you can reformat to a fresh windows install but you will lose all
of your data. If the previous steps fail then it looks like you may need to replace your HDD. Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com
I doubt it is a virus as you have not indicated doing anything that a virus could have been transmitted to your system. The blue screen of death at boot up time simply means the files that find your operating system are not working properly. Specifically, if you want to Google them they are NTLDR (NT Boot Loader), Boot.ini (tells the system the name and location of your system) NTDETECT.COM (inventories your hardware) and HAL.DLL also monitors hardware. If you could get those three files on a disk-NTLDR, Boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM, then it would boot. They are located in the C:\ drive of any computer with windows but you have to release the hidden files button first...best thing to do is go to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at support.microsoft.com and research your error and those files..you're not the only one this has happened to so there may be a fix in the knowledge base. Besides its good practice to use the Knowledge Base as you can find out about any answer on windows there..good luck. Please rate this solutionl.
If you are asking how to re-install Windows XP, you must boot from the cd to do that. Either change your bios settings to boot from the cd first or immediately after the POST screen press F12, then choose boot from cd and when directed, press any key to boot from the cd.
If you're asking why your pc isn't booting there are many reasons it might not boot - virus, driver problems, hardware failure. Need more information if that's your question.
I’m almost positive that you have a bad hard drive. PXE means Pre-Boot Execution Environment. 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) to start your system from harddisk.
when the hard drive has failed, the system cannot detect it and tries
to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your system
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.
