    I really can not afford to purchase a new laptop, how diffitcult is it to replace the motherboard? I have replaced hard drives, and memory cards in other pc's and laptops so am not afraid to attempt the repair myself.

  • wwjdjata Mar 08, 2009

    I have done the diagnostics suggested at the HP website. At one point; after replacing the memory card(as suggested by HP); the computer did boot, ran for about an hour, then shut down. Has not been able to reboot.

    I will try purchasing a new power adapter. However,if that does not work, is chaning the internal power supply difficult?

    No boot, no POWER-could be an incoming power issue. You MUST be more specific. What did you try? What are ALL the symptoms?

    A motherboard first of all if you can find one is $200-$300. Depending on the model, it could take 2 - 3 hours and the removal of about 3 dozen screws here and there. It is a very difficult procedure for most laptops.

    He's been posting this question for quite a while in different threads and he gives bad ratings for right answers. If you do help him, make sure it's not a solution or he'll rate you badly.

  • David Shaub May 11, 2010

    A lot more information is needed to even guess what could be wrong.

    No, what you describe is a motherboard failure.

No Power at all sounds like the Internal DC Power Jack that is soldered onto the motherboard is bad. Send it to these guys

Likely is a power adapter or the internal power supply has failed.

My computer will not boot up. It keeps displayed "Media Test Failure Check Caleb." over and over.

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

I can't seem to get my HP DV1000 laptop to boot from USB I go into the bios and it shows it as a hard-drive but it won't boot from it. I've made a Flash drive with bootable Ubuntu 10

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 :)

I have an acer gemstone and am getting PXE-E61 media test failure check cable can anyone advise

PXE (or 'pixie') means your pc ist trying to boot off a network device and not off your hard drive.

This may mean that your hard drive is dammaged and may may have to be replaced.

Check your BIOS settings and see if you can disable the network boot option.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

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.

My laptop does not boot to windows xp and instead beep three times. The power light flashes with every beep

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.

PXE-E61: media test failure check cable

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

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.
