Question about HP Compaq Presario V2403NR Notebook

1 Answer

Changed cooling fan in compaq v2403nr laptop. Now it won't bootup

It gives me a PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE
PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM

All I did was remove battery, and cover. Had to disconnect 2 wires from a small board in front to remove cover and hard drive also came out. Doesn't sound like a major problem though. I did check boot order and it was OK. Wire were reconnected in correct order.

Was your cd drive detected in the BIOS? Take the laptop back apart and double check your connections.

Laptop won't start up


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.

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.
