You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

This error comes up if the computer is not able to detect the hard drive. Power off the computer. Power it back on and tap the number 2 key 4 - 5 times at the Dell logo screen. This will take you to the system setp screen. Check if you see any thing listed next to solid state drive. If you dont see any thing try reseating the hard drive. Here are the steps to reseat the hard drive..
If you see an entry next to the solid state drive. You'll need to reinstall windows on the computer. If you have been shipped XP you will need an external CD drive to reinstall windows. If the system was sen with ubantu try to download it to a usb drive and boot off it.
Rate if useful.

The problem your having could be the operating system is damange or the hard drive failed. Try to boot from a Windows XP or Vista CD to see if the drive is recognized.

First, take out any CDs/DVDs and try to boot again. If that doesn't work, your hard drive may be defective.
There will be a cover on the bottom of your laptop that holds the hard drive (easy access). You can try removing and reinserting the hard drive and then booting the PC afterward.
If that doesn't work, you will likely have to replace the hard drive, but best advice would be to take it to a computer technician for further analysis.

Testimonial: "I knew it migth be the hard drive, but I was hoping it was not. Thank you."
hello, sounds like bad hard drive. here is what you can try, go in to BIOS and reset it factory default save and exit, let the system start again go back in BIOS and check to see if you see your hard drive there, also this time disable Boot from Network option. seeif your system actually starts up... or you get "no operating system found", if you saw the HDD in BIOS and get no operating system found, you can try reinstalling windows.
if you still media test failure and it loops, you need a new hard drive.
let me know if it helps...
