Firstly check in your bios settings to make sure that your hard drive is set as the boot device, if this doesn't cure your problem then have a look on the bottom of the laptop for access panels, one of these will be covering your hard drive, remove the panel, remove the drive then refit, hopefully it is just a connection issue but could point to hdd failure
Start up the computer and hit F10 a few times during start-up and login to the BIOS and check that the USB drive precedes the hard disk and CD/DVD drives in the boot order. Use the + and - keys to move the boot devices up or down within the boot order. After you have completed this, hit the ESC key and then choose Select Save Changes and Exit. The computer will now attempt to boot from the devices in the order you have specified.
Would you kindly rate my answer please if this has helped resolve the problem - thanks :)
This is usually indicative of either a hard drive failure or the hard drive is not properly engaged in the interface. The computer is falling back on the network booting option, that is the PXE-E61 code, it cannot find the network drive to boot up which means it did not find the internal HDD to boot off of and it did not find a boot up disc in the dvd drive.
The three beeps is a warning that the Power on self test reports a failure of hardware. it could be video, memory, Hard Drive, etc. If you can get into the diagnostics, you can tell more. If nothing works, It may be the motherboard.
The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive. 1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.
2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.
4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.
no power no boot can be indicative of a motherboard failure or could also be the memory. try removing all the memories, hard drive, the optical drives and all external devices connected to your computer. if you get to hear a beeping sound .. your in luck your motherboard is alive and just need to isolate which among the remaining pieces is causing the no power.
