Media test failure ideacentre 320


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.
First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

I have a w3622 and put in a new hard drive and tried to use the OS disk that came with the computer. what I get is PXE-E61: media test failure. check cable. Disk boot failure.insert system disk.


Hello,

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having. Try the following tips and lets see if we can get it up and running.

-Set the boot order in BIOS to boot from the disk drive first. In order to get to the BIOS, you will need to select BIOS option or Settings when the machine is booting up.

Most often, the above error is caused due to incorrect BIOS settings or a faulty hardware, such as hard disk. Sometimes, the error may also occur if the computer tries to boot from a device, on which it cannot find the required boot files. An improperly connected hard disk is also known to cause the same type of issue.


You should follow the below steps sequentially in order to isolate the cause and solve the issue:
  • Verify all the cable connections of the hard disk. An improper or loose connection is likely to be the reason, in case the hard disk has been recently installed or moved.
  • Check if no other storage device is connected to the computer. If it is, remove it.
  • Enter the BIOS setup when trying to start the computer and see if hard disk has been correctly setup and detected in BIOS. If the hard disk cannot be detected due to any reason, you should consider the next suggestion as it might be physical failure.

Regards,

Smart failure hard disk 4 :wd1600bevt-222ct0-(si)


The error S.M.A.R.T. refers to Hard Drive hard drive that has detected damage to the disk and failure of the drive is imminent.

If the computer is booting to Windows after the SMART error, then back up all data on the disk immediately. The hard drive will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.

Also, I suggest that you start the Computer to BIOS and check whether the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS.

If the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS, then try to perform reinstalling Windows supplied in your computer once before getting the hard drive replaced.

Disk boot failure insert system disk


First if your computer has a floppy drive, check to a floppy drive does not have a floppy disk in this drive.
Your computer cannot find the hard disk to boot up.
Go to your BIOS to see if the BIOS detects the hard disk, if not remove the hard disk and re-connect it again and see if it boots up.
If it still does not boot up then most likely the hard drive has failed.
To get the computer working again, install a new hard drive, install Windows and the computer's device drivers and your programs.

About disk boot failure


Hi!

Disk boot failure means that your BIOS can't find the master boot record of your computer which resides in the hard disk or a floppy disk.

This indication means that your hard disk drive is not detected by your BIOS or their is no operating system installed with it.

Have a nice day!
