This means that there is a problem with the cable connecting your harddisk and motherboard either their might be loose connection or the cable must have gone bad in that case it has to be replaced with a new one.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable


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. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is 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.

media test failure like above while
booting means that the problem already solved as long as you can get
into Vista/win7/xp as usual. PXE shown in the massage is
the Ethernet network boot option which you’re not using. There are 4 options you can use for boot up the laptop:
1. Network
2. DVD/CD
3. USB Storage
4. HDD

That was better to use HDD unless you are connected to a LAN then you need to change it to Network

PXE-E61:Media Test Failure


you got that error message because your harddrive isnot detected so it try to boot from network and you don't have OS in the network.

Most of the time is your hdd is dead. In some cases the motherboard is dead.

You can replace your hdd.
for OS (vista vs XP), if you have enough rams and high cpu, you should install vista, but for me, I prefer XP.
for the price, you should call microsoft seller.
