My hp nx9030 keep rebooting itself with the message, PXE E61 media test failure check cable, PXE -MOF EXITING PXE ROM.what can i do


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

371796-001 HP nx9030 heat fan works when tested


go to bios settings by pressing F10 for hp .. there select the optimal factory defaults.and engage and also save settings with F10 ...and exit ..This will get rid of any wrong settings made in bios ..related with he fan ..and should start proper..The only thing that can malfunction is caused by a higher temperature to start ,, and never get to it ..
If it still makes the same ..you should consider changing it ..or see the wires to be proper inserted..cause it has 2 for power and one for starting..and can be damaged..but still functional when you check it ..just the wire for the start to be damaged or not making contact .. ..

Problem with hp compaq nc8430 no see my hard drive Went I reinstall windown xp my hard drive it not present


Hi there,

Go into the BIOS setup (press f10 during boot process), then SYSTEM CONFIGURATION and disable SATA NATIVE SUPPORT. Try installing XP again and it should see your hard drive.

(If it will work then please vote for me).

Thanks

The bios test of hard disk test is failed wht can i do now


If the hard disk has failed, and you want the data off of the hard disk, you have two choices..

Purchase a extender to allow you to read the hard disk and also purchase a data recovery program to get the data off the hard disk...

Or google data recovery service and find one that can retrieve data of of bad hard drives..

Either way afterward you will need to purchase a new hard drive.. They have drives as low as 30 dollars online that can be purchased and then installed.

You will need to reinstall windows on the new hard drive you get..

Ultimately you will have to weigh the cost of repairing the computer ( purchasing a hardrive and purchasing a new copy of windows)

Versus purchasing a new computer.
