    The point is that the message appires during the loading procedure. It follows the screen with the prompt "Press F2 to enter set-up" and computer can't load at all. Either I can't enter setup using F2 key. It looks like the keypad don't work too. Or maybe there is another way to enter setup?

Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 4.1.06 Copyright (C) 1997-2002 , Intel Corporation PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Existing Intel Boot Agent. Insert System Disk in Drive. Press any key when...

It appears that the computer is attempting to boot to a network instead of your hard drive. One possible cause of this is that the hard drive is no longer bootable (may have been formatted, loosely seated or the boot sector/OS was damaged by a virus or failed update).

First thing to try is go to the system setup. Almost every system has its own unique System Setup program which you can access by pressing Delete while the computer is starting up (F1 or F2 for older Toshiba Satellite models). Once there, you'll have to look for settings that say something like "PXE/LAN Boot ROM" or "Boot to LAN" (once again, it may be different depending on the brand & model) and make sure it's set to "DISABLED".

You may also have to look for "Boot Configuration" or "Boot Sequence" and check to make sure that the hard drive (may be listed as "Hard Drive", "HDD" or its serial number) is selected as the first boot device. If the PXE or LAN Boot ROM is listed there, set it to DISABLED as well.

After that, just save the changes and exit and allow the computer to start up.

There's a good chance that it will boot normally again. Otherwise, it will exhibit the symptoms that will help figure out why iot couldn't boot to the hard drive in the first place.

Intel L440GX sever motherboard, I just installed it and keep getting a medi failure message. I have ckecked yhe hard drives and the cables they work fine in other systems. Can you help?

The "media test failure" message usually occurs when it tries to boot from LAN instead of the hard drive. It most likely says something about an Intel/Marvell PXE Boot Agent. If it does, then you'll have to disable the LAN Boot ROM in the system setup boot configuration.

Cant start my laptop, mesage on the scrin ;The

you will have to format the laptop hard drive and re install the Windows Operating system.
The Boot agent is the start up program for the Operating system. If this is corrupted then you have a virus or malware that has corrupted the boot program.
2. After formatting and reinstallation of the Operating system you will need to download the Microsoft Essential anti-virus protection program ( free).
from Microsoft site.
I hope this helps.

PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot:

1.Go to Bios Settings
2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option.
3.Save The configuration

Also verify if your harddisk is detected by BIOS

Booting problems with acer laptop - no operating system found??


PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network.

It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located

If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
This can be caused if the hard drive is missing, unplugged or corrupt, or simply by not having the boot order configured correctly.

When you start your laptops, press F2 repeatedly until you enter the bios set up, navigate to the boot order and make sure that the hard drive (sometimes listed as HDD....) at the top of the list.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anymore help.
