The chances is good that the hard drive is faulty when Windows says that. The best is to backup all your information and get a qualified technician to test the hard drive properly and then to replace the hard drive if faulty.

If it is not the hard drive then it might be your hdd controller on the motherboard. If that is the case you will need to replace the motherboard. But a motherboard can be expensive. In that case you can get rid of the laptop and rather buy a new one.

ACER 4630z will not boot up


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.

Acer 5534 will not boot up....tried recovery disk....but nothing......error message PXE-E61-media test failure..........no bootable device


Hello:
Your Acer laptop is not detecting a bootable device, for sure your hard disk is:
1.- Malfunctioning and has lost its master boot record.
2.- It can be ruined and must be replaced.

In the first case, primary and recovery partition are bad, as you mention the recovery process failed (ctrl +F11). First, press F2 during POST, when "a enter Setup message" is prompted on the bottom of screen to check if the hard disk is listed on the Main BIOS properties. If detected, the hard disk can be recovered booting from DVD-ROM. In the BIOS setup utility, you need to select boot from de DVD-RW. Insert Windows 7 setup disk and it will check for possible boot errors, choose repair when prompted. Follow the instructions. The system will restart.
If the hard disk was not detected in BIOS properties, you should ask Acer for guarantee.

I hope this helps. Thanks

Aspire One N214 Model # ZG5 keeps showing me a Acer screen before informing me that I have a Media test failure and that it has no bootable device. I have no boot disk it asks for, Please help me!


The media failure means either the hard disk has failed and therefore cannot boot up the notebook.
Try reseating the hard drive first, so it makes proper electrical contact. If it still fails to boot up, then go to the BIOS setup and check to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic program, if so then run this program to check the hard disk. If the hard disk is faulty, then a new hard disk is needed and install Windows on this hard disk plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs to get a working computer again.

Audio video doesnt play smooth, it's jittery. cpu usage of player goes 40-60%. windows xp prof service pack 3. all acer travelmate audio video drivers. acer travelmate 4000 notebook


Does this happen only when viewing online audio/video, as opposed to inserting a music-CD into your CD-drive, and using Windows Media Player to play the music?

If so, then how fast is your Internet connection?
It probably is too slow to download and play at the same time.
So, when you click on a YouTube video, click "pause",
and let the download proceed for a minute or two,
and then click "play", to play what has been downloaded.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.


This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.

Acer aspire one hard disk cannot read


Check the BIOS configuration for the hard disk, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer should detect the hard drive as an external disk drive. If this computer cannot detect it and/or cannot open the folders etc. the the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to install a new hard drive in the Acer and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs to get the laptop operational again.

Bios not find hard disk


If the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.

1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.
