SOURCE: media test failure check cable

system is trying to boot to a network, this is most likely due to the hard disk drive not being detected, or the windows operating system is missing.
First reset the BIOS defaults, see if the system detects the HDD in the bios and will now boot.

Run diagnostics on the hard disk drive, which I suspect it will fail.
If diags on the drive pass, they try reinstalling Windows. But I expect you'll be replacing the drive.

A "media test failure, check cable" means your hard disk failed. The bios can not locate the boot sector of the hard disk to begin loading the operating system.
"Operating system not found" means windows can't load because the Bios can not find the operating system (because the hard disk failed).

This is pretty much an unrecoverable error in terms of fast fixes. You can take the hard disk to a data recovery service if you need to retrieve important data or files.

Check the hard drive might be defect or loose from the hard drive connector. If the hard drive is detected in BIOS probably the hard drive is out of order

New Battery


Return the battery. Some aftermarket batteries don't work well, and COULD be a fire hazard. Get a genuine Acer battery replacement, beware of inexpensive aftermarkets.

Will acer extensa 5230E reinstallation cds contain windows


A driver restore disk works with a windows disk to return your Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 back to the original factory setup.

Once windows has installed you put this disk into the drive as soon as windows gives you a found new hardware dialog box. Once inserted the Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 will automatically find all the drivers and also install most of the original factory software. BEWARE OF GENERIC DISKS ! All Drivers and factory software are operating system specific so you must have the correct software and drivers for your Acer Extensa 5230EWindows 7. Some of the drivers you would find on this Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk are listed below. Not all will be applicable to your system as this list is for information only for Acer Extensa 5230E Windows 7 Restore Disk.

THIS DISK DOES NOT CONTAIN AN OPERATING SYSTEM!
YOU WILL NEED TO INSTAL Windows 7 FIRST OR USE AN EXISTING INSTALL.

Hope this helps

My acer extensa 5620z got knocked off the chair and since then it wont come on properely. The screen says media test failure, check cable, then operating system not found.


The fall likely dislocated the hard drive. If you are comfortable working on your laptop yourself (you may void the warantee, if any), you will need to locate the panel on the bottom that covers the hard drive. It may be labelled HDD. Open it and 'reseat' the hard drive. Reseat means essentially to unplug and plug back in. Put the panel back on and give it a try. Touch something metal that is grounded before opening it up to discharge any static built up on you before digging in.

I have a laptop acer extensa 5230E, and i want to reset default bios becose i forgot my password


What you could try is to carefully take off the keyboard and look for a little battery on the mainboard of the laptop. Carefully take it out and place it back in the right way.
Make sure that you don't leave stains or greasemarks on the battery.
With kind regards,
