Your hard drive sounds like it was damaged and the heads are now out of alignment. If it comes up with no operating system then your best bet is to buy another hard drive and reinstall. Also, buy an external enclosure for the damaged hard drive, plug it in to another working computer and hopefully your data is still retrievable.

The computer does not boot into the operating system and displays "Operating System not found."


Hi,
For that problem, do this first check-up your bios setting.
Power on your PC laptop
, when screen popped up ( press F2, delete etc. ) to get into standard bios Setup you see there if your hardisk drive detected or not detected. if not detected try to open your Laptop PC ( need power off. open cover at the back of your laptop ) check-up your hardisk drive for loose power cable, data cable hardisk Some burn , noise hardisk sound ) if detected, your operating system corrupted. you need to Reinstall your operating system like windows xp, windows 7 or linux base operating system. try that Solution first.

Just let me know if not yet working your laptop PC.
Regard.

Hi, i have an Acer aspire 5930g Laptop. When I try to boot this comes: Yukon v6.14.1.2(beta)(20070307) ... pxe-e61media test failure, check cable pxe-mof exiting pxerom operating system not found What to...


hi,
PXE is an ability to boot from a network server for your operating system. and machine will tend to fall back on this as a last resort to find bootable media (IE the hard drive with an operating system on it.) so it would appear that if that message comes up and it doesn't do anything further, then your hard drive is either disconnected/ bad/ or infected badly. on a rare occasion the machines bios could wig out and remove the setting to even try to boot of the hard drive leaving a PXE boot only. this is rare but could happen. I would suggest you boot the system up and access bios. to check for the presence of a hard drive and the boot order setting to include a hard drive. the esasiest test is to connect a cdrom with and operating system cd on it. and see if it boots to that if so. you have most likely got a bad hard drive.

Hope this helps

When booting the laptop it says PXE-E61: media


When you start your computer, the motherboard searches connected drives for the operating system. The search order is usually the optical (CD/DVD) drive first, possibly a USB drive next, then the hard drive. If none of these work, some systems are set to try booting the operating system over a network cable. What the cryptic message you're getting is telling you is that the system tried a network boot without success, and that maybe the trouble is a bad cable.

This all means that your hard drive isn't being detected, or that there's no longer an operating system on it. It's possible the connector from the hard drive to the motherboard has come loose, which can sometimes happen since laptops get moved around. The hard drive may have gone bad, or there may be a problem with the motherboard that is causing it not to find the hard drive. Or the hardware may all be fine, but something (a virus or other malware, for instance) has deleted files needed to load Windows.

When the computer first starts, you'll see a message about how to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS is the motherboard's built-in program, and through the setup pages you can see what devices it detects. This will let you know if the hard drive is being found. Some boards include diagnostic tests you can run on the hard drive if problems are found. You can also check the boot order; you may find that for some reason the boot order has been changed so that the network boot is being tried first. Strange things can happen to BIOS settings, often a sign that the backup battery for the memory where the settings are stored is getting weak.

If you have access to a Windows XP operating system CD, you can set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive and try using the Recovery Console feature. Information about this can be found at Microsoft's site.

Good luck getting your laptop back up and running quickly. Thanks for using Fixya!

Booting problem, screen message: Intel (R) Boot Agent FE v4.1.18 Copyright (C) 1997-2005, Intel Corporation PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent. Operating...


HI there,
The "Error" texts saying:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Are completely normal. This simply states that there is no external cables plugged into the specialty inputs on your toshiba laptop.

The "operating system not found" is stating that your existing hard drive is either A) dead or B) been erased.

Try to re-install your operating system, if it finds no hard drive, you'll need a new one!

it's trying to boot up from the network instead of from your harddrive. It could mean that it's unable to find your harddrive. One thing to check is the BIOS settings for the boot option - make sure the harddrive boots BEFORE it tries to boot from network.
Once you turn on your laptop it will tell you what to press to get in to the bios to change these options (could be either F1, F2, F10, DEL or maybe even something else) Once in the BIOS look for BOOT OPTIONS

My sony vaio pcg-551l won't go past "no operating system"


If this is the first time your trying to start up this computer try to restart it. Sometimes brand new laptops can fail to find the operating system on first startup. If this isn't the case it sounds like your Hard Drive is either disconnected or has had a critical failure.
