ACER 4630z will not boot up


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.

hi,
PXE is an ability to boot from a network server for your operating system. and machine will tend to fall back on this as a last resort to find bootable media (IE the hard drive with an operating system on it.) so it would appear that if that message comes up and it doesn't do anything further, then your hard drive is either disconnected/ bad/ or infected badly. on a rare occasion the machines bios could wig out and remove the setting to even try to boot of the hard drive leaving a PXE boot only. this is rare but could happen. I would suggest you boot the system up and access bios. to check for the presence of a hard drive and the boot order setting to include a hard drive. the esasiest test is to connect a cdrom with and operating system cd on it. and see if it boots to that if so. you have most likely got a bad hard drive.

Your computer is attempting to boot over the network (something that only works with a server on the network) PXE E61 Media Test Failure Error
You can get this message if the boot device order is wrong in your computer (go into bios and check) but more often, the computer has tried to boot from the hard drive and dvd and failed before trying to boot from the network. It sounds like the hard drive has been failing for a long time and is now so bad the disk to disk no longer works. Replace the hard drive and reinstall using the recovery DVDs you created. If you didn't create them, you may have to contact Acer for a set.
