Thinkpad x60 reboot fails. Error message: Media test failure

My Thinkpad x60 restarted while running. Error message: Media test failure, check cable.  Its reboot failed. Changing the "Startup" menu doesn't help. 
What could be a cause is that my Thinkpad was dropped to my car seat while running. 
Thanks.

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table


When your computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, it tried to connect to a network-accessible "boot-server" via the Ethernet adapter.

However, if there's no cable connected to the computer's Ethernet port, you will get the "check the cable" error-message.

So, your real problem is "invalid partition table", which means that the very first record on the disk-drive is either missing or corrupt.
That first record contains the "partition table", which lists the size of the hard-drive, and the size of each partition (usually only one) on the hard-drive.

So, you'll need to buy an adapter that has a USB-plug on one end, and a connector for your "SATA" or "IDE" hard-drive at the other end.

Remove the hard-drive from your computer, attach it to the connector, and plug-in the USB connector to a USB port on another computer, and then use software to delete and then reconstruct the partition table.

Or, the hard-drive is failing, and must be replaced (maybe under warranty???).

Ibm thinkpad tablet won't boot, says insert set up cd rom which i no longer have


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. thanks and have a nice day J-

Lenovo X60 Unlock Code ?


On my x60s, the only way to wake it up from standby (or hibernation) is by pressing the "Fn" key on the bottom left side of the keyboard.
