Re: toshiba a10 does not give me the option to put lan
Are you trying to install Windows or reinstall Windows?
The PXE-E61 POST error means the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk, either a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Check the BIOS and see if it has detected the hard disk, some BIOS also have a hard disk diags, if so run it to test the hard drive.
My guess is that you have a faulty hard disk.

Hard drive has been coruppted. Hold alt f10 on statup to format and reinstall. If that dont work you may need to try install from cd's provided when you purchased laptop. If that dont work buy new hard drive and restore from cd's. Good Luck.
PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).
PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot:
1.Go to Bios Settings 2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option. 3.Save The configuration
PXE means Pre-Boot Execution Environment. 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.
to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system?
"PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot" 1.Go to Bios Settings 2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option. 3.Save The configuration(F10) This Will Solve this problem
this is a easy fix all you need is a windows xp installation disk.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of the cd option.if you need help with the xp cd installation i can write up a guide for you.also is the first harddrive new or came with the comp.if it is a new harddrive it might not have a operating system on it.email me if you have anymore qeustions or you want the guide.i can even make a video for you but it probably won't be good quality.
If you get this error in a black screen before windows xp can boot up....
CLIENT MAC ADDR: xxxxxxx GUID: xxxxxxxxxx PXE-E53: no boot filename recived PXE-MOF: exiting intel PXE Rom
Your network card's settings in bios have somehow been changed. PXE means Pre-Execution Enviroment. In other words, it allows your network card to connect to a network server to pull operating system images off the network and other files without having an operating system installed.
The Fix, Go into BIOS press F2 or F12 whatever your PC's screen at bootup says. In Bios, reset your bios settings to the default bios settings, or original settings. This fixed my problem with the above error. Nothing else fixed it. Windows Recovery cd will not fix it, because you cannot boot windows if this error is still occuring, Your network card will keep prompting DHCP to search for a network.
Its a bios function not a windows function.
This message is primarily seen when the PC is attempting to boot from a network, and that network connection is no longer present. The error message would read PXE-E61: Media test failure / Check computer. Is this your message?
If it is, you need to go into the BIOS, and make sure that the sequence is 1) CD-ROM 2) HDD 3) FDD (if you have a floppy) 4) LAN (if you choose to leave the LAN there). Otherwise, switch option 1 and option 2. If the problem is the hard drive, however, putting the CD-ROM first will allow you to boot from your Windows CD.

It's trying to boot from the LAN. Don't ask me why but it's got it into it's little brain that it needs to boot from the LAN before anything else. When it can't get a valid operating system image over the network, it gives up and reboots with that error message.
Happily the solution is pretty simple. Go into the bios by tapping F10 when you first turn the power on. From there go to the System Configuration, and into the Boot Options. If you still don't have a viable operating system, it's necessary to set the CD Rom as the first boot device, so it will read a Windows disk. Makes sure CD-ROM Boot is set to Enabled and Network Adapter Boot is set to DISABLED. Then set the boot devices in the following order:
ATAPI CD/DVD Rom Drive Notebook Hard Drive
- all the other options can be in any order, just make sure these two are at the top.
Pop in a Windows disk or your system restore disk and it should go through fine.
