Toshiba nb300 windows starter won't boot. PXE-E61 media test failure. check cable.


If your computer is working fine, then disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, that's why the media test failure is displayed. It's usually used to load an OS image from network.


For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.
If there is a problem (won't boot) then it lost communications to hard drive, and you need to check BIOS for hard drive.

Display PXE-E61: Media Failure, Check Cable PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent Will not boot to windows. I boot from the hard drive and still get an error


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.

Won't start up message says: PXE-E61 Media test failure No bootable device


This can easily indicate a Hard Drive failure, or, it could be that the drive wiggled loose. When the power turns on, tap F12 several times which should open the "Boot Menu". This list should display all of the devices you can have the computer attempt to load an operating system from. If the Hard Drive is missing, or doesn't work when you hit "Enter" it could be the fault of the drive. You can try flipping the laptop over, grabbing a small screwdriver, and unscrewing the bay on the bottom that has a picture of a cylinder next to the screw holes. Slide the drive out, and then back in, screw it all back together, and try it again.

Starting up i get PXE-E61 media test failure some people tell me its the hard drive some say the cddrve others say it could be trying to boot from a LAN


PXe Boot is used by the computer to boot to a network DOS-type environment.If you are receiving a PXe failure message on bootup check that your PC is set to boot from the CD Rom, Floppy, and Hard Drive BEFORE network or other boot device.

That's where you need to check to get solution to your problem, if not... try these


1. your settings in your bios
2. faulty cable/wire to your media device (hard drive, cd/dvd rom, etc)
3. The cmos battery (which indirectly points to your bios settings)



Hope this helps!

I bought a new hardrive for my m2000 and when i load it it is giving me a "media test failure" response..... how do i load it properly?


If you bought a new hard drive (meaning the internal hard disk), it won't have anything on it. If you just install it and try booting your computer, there won't be an operating system to load. The BIOS (the operating system built into the motherboard) is set up to try loading the operating from connected devices in a certain order. Usually it tries the optical drive first, then the hard drive, and finally it tries to boot over a network connection. The media test failure message means it tried that last resort and still didn't find an operating system, and it's telling you that maybe you have a bad network cable.

You'll need to reinstall your operating system and applications so that the computer will start normally. If your computer came with a restore disc set, or you made a set yourself, you'd use those. If you don't have restore discs, you can do a fresh installation of Windows from CD. You need to find the disc for the version that came installed on your computer, since you'll need to use the product key from the sticker on the bottom. Drivers and utility programs you can download from Compaq's (HP, actually) support and drivers website.

Once you've got a bootable Windows system on the new drive, you won't get that strange message any more.

Won't boot from dvd or hard drive, changed hard drives and still won't boot


Depends on what you mean by won't boot from DVD or Hard Drive,
it sounds like your boot order is what you're looking for help for.

To do this you need to get into your computers BIOS (or "Setup")
You can do this by rebooting the computer and the very very very first screen you see tells you how,
usually by pressing DEL or F2 or F10.

Without knowing the specific computer you're looking for help on I can only point you in the right direction however keep in mind the BIOS is for advanced users only and you can damage your computer by randomly changing settings.

What you're looking for though is usually called the Boot Order or Boot Sequence
You'll need to set whatever device you want to boot from higher on the list (usually with the up arrow or PgUp)
If you don't see your device on the boot list then it may not be detected due to failure.
