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.

You have to reformat or repair your operating system. there is an option when you start to reformat/repair your operating system, but first you should back-up your files to other computer, make your hardisk as a slave to other computer, there is a jumper on the back of the hardisk, place it on the slave pin then put it on the other computer without taking off the hardisk of the computer you will used

Hi,

If you can attach your hardisk to any Desktop Windows OS computer, you can use the "Check Disk" by windows to check the problem of you laptop hardisk, usually using USB Eclosure will help you connect your Laptop Hardisk to Desktop Computer. Just use "Check Disk" utility to check the Drive, you can do this by clicking MY COMPUTER, then Right Click on your Laptop Drive then PROPERTIES, then TOOLS and click CHECK NOW, then place a check mark on the "AUTOMATICALLY FIX SYSTEM ERRORS" then start fixing, after that, then put back your laptop hardisk on your laptop and see if its works.
