Hi. I think the problem on this one is its either your Harddrive has already failed or your Optical Drive has a cd inside, so double check your Optical drive if there is a disc inside it. If not this issue is also with the operating system, you can try to restore your system by pressing the One Key recovery(OKR) button found beside the power button which has a logo of an arching arrow, but remember to plugin first the ac adapter on your laptop before pressing the One Key Recovery Button and also do not press the power button to turn on your computer because when you press the OKR button it will automatically turn on your computer and proceed with the recovery process. When it gives you some option you should choose One Key Recovery and then choose System Recovery, then factory default and from there it will guide you to the whole process of recovering your machine. If this doesnt fix the issue you could also try using the Recovery disc to restore your sytem t its original settings just like the OKR. Lastly you can contact the tech support dept. of Lenovo, they are open 24/7 and this the number to contact:
US/Canada: Available 24/7 1-877-4LENOVO (1-877-453-6686)
Australia: Available 24/7 1300-557-073
New Zealand: 9am-9pm Mon-Fri 0800-446-833. Hope this helps

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

E-E61 media test failure check cable pxe-mof exiting pxe rom. operating system not found. how do i find it


Hard drive lost communications with motherboard. Remove it and reseat it. Check BIOS if it sees the HD.


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.

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.

My laptop isnt working.as soon as u turn it on a black screen comes up and the message display says PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM!! how can i fix it


It goes to a network boot rather than booting straight to the HDD. restart your computer and press f2 immediatley. you are now on the BIOS page. check if your hard drive is detected and if not call Lenovo to have it replaced/repaired. if it is detected, after the PXE error, your computer should boot up just fine.

Open BIOS and configure your boot devices priority. First boot device should be the hdd. Also check if the laptops see the hard disk, i think your hard disk have a problem and thats why laptop wants to boot from network.

I cannot be sure, but I think that this problem has something to do with having "boot from network adapter" enabled in your BIOS. If this is not the problem, then it might be another malfunctioning device, in which case, you will want to go into BIOS and disable everything except for what you need to get through the restore process(Disable USB ports, network adapter, PCMCIA card slot, etc.)

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.

Can't start up the laptop as Media test failure


You may have to go back into the bios and see if there is an option to automatically find HDD, or you may have to manually enter them in the Standard Bios Settings. It may be that the old HDD are still in the bios's recognised setup.
