I have tried that solution a few times to no avail but what I did do was to “Disable the Legacy USB Support” and it worked and I have had no problems since.

Try hitting F8 when the laptop starts booting- choose safemode and see if it works and you can get into safe mode- if so it's probably a driver issue or spyware. If not- you probably need to reload the operating system. Hope this helps- if not IM me and I'll see what else will help.

Pxe-61 media test failure.check cable pxe-mof: existing pxe rom.loading drmk v8.00


This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard drive.
Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. We recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.
If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
Then try re-booting and tapping the f12 key which should start up a diagnostics page

Starting up i get PXE-E61 media test failure some people tell me its the hard drive some say the cddrve others say it could be trying to boot from a LAN


PXe Boot is used by the computer to boot to a network DOS-type environment.If you are receiving a PXe failure message on bootup check that your PC is set to boot from the CD Rom, Floppy, and Hard Drive BEFORE network or other boot device.

That's where you need to check to get solution to your problem, if not... try these


1. your settings in your bios
2. faulty cable/wire to your media device (hard drive, cd/dvd rom, etc)
3. The cmos battery (which indirectly points to your bios settings)



Hope this helps!

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!

Uable to boot lap top, get unable to locate os and unable to reload os as unable to format drive, would appear hard drive has had enough and gone on holiday for good


Everything you mentioned in your post....points you directly toward hard drive failure. If the mechanical of the drive are still working however, you could try to attach it to a IDE/SATA to USB adapter, attach it to another computer and see if you can access your personal files off of it. That way you might not lose your data if you do not have a sufficient backup.

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

Also verify if your harddisk is detected by BIOS

UNABLE TO BOOT DELL D600 - FAILURE TO DETECT HARD DISK


If you press F12 during bootup, you should get the boot menu. Run the hard disk diagnostic. If the hard disk is bad, you will get a DST Short Test Error code.

Replacing the hard disk in a D600 is a piece of cake though so if you need a new HD, it's easy to do. The tedious work will come afterward.

Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart

or

Take the jumper off restart shut down and then put it back on again

or

remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once after booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, again start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you for pressing F1. reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)

Try these one should work.

Please let me know.
