Question about HP Hewlett Packard Pavilion DV9500T 17" NOTEBOOK LAPTOP PC
Having problems booting my laptop. Everything seemed to work fine and I haven't experienced any problems with it prior to this. I've had my laptop for approximately two years. Now when I turn it on it gives me a message PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable. I checked BIOS and it said No IDE detected. Does this mean that the hard drive has failed or is there some way to access the drive to back up data. I have the same problem, I am hoping you can help me use the magic disk to boot my laptop so I can get some files copied, I have an HP DV9500 and its only a year old, and so far I have had the keyboard replaced twice, the warranty ran out in December so I am pretty much up a creek.
Id open the hard drive bay and remove the drive and then reseat it and then try to reboot the unit. make sure the battery is out and the power unplugged when you take the drive out. if the system errors like that again its either the hard drive or the ide/sata on the mobo. after getting the system up you could use an external drive adapter to try and recover any data off that drive (really doubt itll work if drive is dead)
