SOURCE: Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v10.0.9
The Broadcom PXE looks for a boot device/files from a network source if the network cable is't plugged in then you get the PXE-E61: Media test failure check cable, you can turn this off in the bios, when this doesn't find any boot information it moves onto the next boot device which is defined in the bios, usally the dvd drive then the HD. If this is a Altos server you have bought they are not supplied with an OS so it wont boot from the HD to begin with, if you already had a OS installed and it wont boot then there is something wrong with with the HD or the connectors or posibly the boot sectors are corrupted, if the device is making th tak tak noise the it is having trouble reading te device.

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.

Hi, you'll have to go to bios/Cmos settings& set the bootable media as your CD/DVD rom drive name & you can try to recover it.

It sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Make sure you don't have any CD/DVDs in the drive if that model has one and you don't have any USB devices plugged in at boot.
