SOURCE: Aspire 5315, no bootable device, PXE-E61 media test failure,

With any standard laptop (your Aspire included) the default boot disk should be set to drive C:
If the system is not finding drive C:, the boot sector may be damage or the drive may have failed completely.
Depending on your operating system (probably Win XP for this one) you can make a boot disk on a friend's optical drive and change the boot sequence in the BIOS setup to your optical drive. Just make sure the disk you've made is compatible with the drive in your Aspire; such as CD - DVD+-, etc.
Once you can get some kind of prompt, either from a basic Desktop or just E:\ from your boot CD, try typing in "C:" (without the quotes) to see if it is accessible. If not, the drive may be bad.
If the drive is still readable, you have more work to do to restore the damaged boot sector.

It sounds like your hard disk has gone, or not being recognized by the computer... Check if it seats well in it's place.
Unfortunately, laptop HDDs don't last long these days.

My gateway says "Check cable connection!PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key". What should I do?


Sounds like the hard drive isn't getting power,the data cable to the drive isn't connected,or the drive controller on the motherboard is toast(I'm a novice tinkerer,not an expert).

Pxe-m0f : Exiting intel pxe rom


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

I get a black screen that say: Realtek PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller Series v2.26 (090219) PXE-E61 media Test Failure check cable ****-MOF: Exiting PxE ROM No Bootable device- insert boot disk...


Apparently, the HDD has failed, that's why it doesn't find a bootable device and you can't restore te factory settings. You can try getting Hiren's Boot CD and use the testing tools to scan and fix the drive. Sometimes it just gets corrupted and returns to RAW format and just needs a format ( unfortunately you will lose all your data).
