Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
Media test failure, check cable error message , can't start-up
Error message says, PXE-MOF : EXITING PXE ROM
FOR REALTEK FAST INTERNET CONTROLLER V2.12
MEDIA TEST FAILURE,CHECK CABLE
this comes up on start-up of computer and we can't get past it, it keeps repeating above message
The error is related to your network interface card. In a lot of laptops this is integrated to the motherboard and can't be switched out at home. You will need to take the laptop in for service to have the card replaced.

This means that your laptop is not recognizing your hard drive. Boot into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is recognized there. If it is, then just the windows installation may be bad and need to be re-installed. If the hard drive doesn't appear in the bios then, the hard drive may be bad.

It sounds like it's trying to boot from a network. Did you change the boot start up in the BIOS? If not then it's trying to boot from the Ethernet port because your hard drive is not being detected or your software is corrupted.
