My pc wont boot. All i get is " reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"


This can happen if you have non-bootable media in the default boot device (i.e., you have a CD in the CD/DVD drive and that drive is listed as the default boot device in your system's BIOS). More often (on newer systems), a failed hard drive will also produce this message.

If you have bootable media (the Windows install CD is one example), you should try to boot to it and see if you can read your hard drive.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable acer extensa 542


Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy disk
* CD/DVD optical device
* disk-drive
* external CD/DVD
* USB memory stick
* PXE ("Pre eXecution Environment)

To use PXE, you need "media" -- a network cable connecting yur computer to a "boot-server". The "media test faiure, check cable" reports that no network-cable exists, or that it does exist WITHOUT being connected to a boot-server.

Probably, your computer failed to boot from a DEAD disk-drive, and then tried floppy/CD/USB before checking PXE.

Replace the disk-drive.

0F00:136C IDE device failed:blank media or no media is present in optical drive


read failure of the CD\DVD drive. If you were running diagnostics and have no readable media in the drive, that is a NORMAL result.
If you have readable media in the drive, try reseating the drive and try to read again. If the media is not a factory burned CD, try a factory burned one.
See if you can boot to an Windows CD.
If all the above fail, then likely a drive failure, replace the drive

Hp proliant server dl380 g3. gettting PXE-E61:Media test failure, check cable how to fix it..


Your server tries to "boot" from several sources:
* floppy-disk
* CD/DVD
* disk-drive
* network (if you have a "boot-server" somewhere on your network)

So, if your computer FAILS to boot from the first 3 devices, above, it will try the 4th, namely via your network-adapter.
When your computer finds that its network-adapter is *NOT* connected via an Ethernet cable to a boot-server, it reports "check cable" and "test of the media has failed".

So, why did your server *NOT* boot from the 3rd device, namely your disk-drive? Solve that problem, and the 4th device (the "network-boot") will not be tried, and the error-messages will not appear.

It has a probelm rebooting and it says "media check failed , check cable


Your computer tries to "boot" from various source:
* floppy-disk
* CD/DVD
* disk-drive
* network (if your computer is connected via an Ethernet cable to a network that has a "boot-server" on it).

Thus, your computer has _NOT_ found anything "bootable" on the floppy-disk, in the CD/DVD drive, on the disk-drive, and so it tries to check if you have a network-connection to a boot-server.

So, the "big" question is why did your computer *NOT* boot from the disk-drive? Either you told it not to make such an attempt, or the disk-drive is "dead", i.e., not responding to requests to boot from it, or there is no electrical power to the disk-drive, so that it cannot reaply to the "boot-request".

Take your computer to a qualified computer-technician; it's probable that your disk-drive has "failed".
