    First of all, what kind of computer is it? A desktop or a laptop? Have you been using an external hard drive that was recently disconnected? Any information you give me will help me figure it out. Thanks.

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!

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.

Media Test Failure, cheack cable. What exactly


This means that the "Media" CD, DVD, HDD has been "Tested" by the Window Operating System, for veracity, and has been found NOT to have passed the "Test", therefore windows WILL NOT USE IT, as it doesn't want the data corrupted. This usually means that the device is defective in some way. Replacement is the usual answer.
