SOURCE: Pxe-e61: media test failure, operating system not found

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.

SOURCE: Message saying media test failure, exiting PXE ROM

Sounds like your hard drive died. If hard drive is dead you wont be able to get into anything but the bios. Hold down the CTRL key when computer starts and dont let go and try to force it into going into bios for you.

E-E61 media test failure check cable pxe-mof exiting pxe rom. operating system not found. how do i find it


Hard drive lost communications with motherboard. Remove it and reseat it. Check BIOS if it sees the HD.


Disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, that's why the media test failure is displayed. It's usually used to load an OS image from network.

HI there,
The "Error" texts saying:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Are completely normal. This simply states that there is no external cables plugged into the specialty inputs on your toshiba laptop.

The "operating system not found" is stating that your existing hard drive is either A) dead or B) been erased.

Try to re-install your operating system, if it finds no hard drive, you'll need a new one!

If the sound you are referring to is a clicking sound, then it is a hard drive failure.
Your computer is trying to boot up the operating system from the hard drive, but when it fails to access the hard drive, it tries to boot up from other devices configured on the BIOS. Apparently, your next choice for booting the operating system is set to the LAN card. Hence, you get the message "PXE-E61 Media test failure", which means that the computer tried to boot up the operating system over the network but it found out that your network cable is not connected to your computer's network interface card.

PXEE61:media test failure, check cable PXEM0F:exiting PXE ROM operating system not found


You didn't ask a question. I assume this is an error on boot-up? If so, then the system is reporting that no pxe server was found to boot your system over the network. To correct this you should enter the BIOS setup upon power-up (via hitting the delete, f1, f2 or f10 key - depending upon your computer) and disable the boot from network setting. Save configuration and restart. You should probably set BIOS boot order to 1st device = cdrom, 2nd device = harddrive.

Operating system not found media test failure will not reboot aspire 3680


Installing an operating system from one computer and inserting it into another computer will not work specially when they are from different manufacturers because the components in them are different.
The Windows install has to be done on the intended computer.
The media test failure error message refers to a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
