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.

SOURCE: unable to get to start up screen

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.

SOURCE: WILL NOT LOAD OPERATING SYSTEM.

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.

Can you open the BIOS setup at boot? Look for the primary HDD, is it listed? If no, unplug, remove battery, You can try to reseat the HDD, perhaps it's not making a good connection? Or perhaps it was damaged in shipment? Was it packed well? You can remove it and test to verify it's working properly.

It can't locate a working boot disc. Most likely lost communications with hard drive. Look in BIOS again to see it recognizes the drive. If not try re-seating / reconnecting drive.

Laptop won't start up


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

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!

The PXE-E61 error is caused by either a faulty disk controller or most likely a faulty hard disk. Because the Lenovo is new I suggest you return it to the supplier to get it fixed under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself because you can void your warranty.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
