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. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is 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.
1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from
the printer memory. 2. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer
on. 3. Try printing a job from a different software application. If
the job prints, go back to the first application and try printing
a different file. (If the message only appears with a certain software
application or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.) 4. If the message persists with different software applications and
print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to
the network or printer. 5. Turn the printer off. 6. Remove all memory
DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware
DIMM in the lowest DIMM slot.) 7. Remove all EIO devices from the
printer. 8. Turn the printer on. 9. If the error no longer exists,
install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn
the printer off and back on as you install each device. 10. Replace
a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error. 11.
Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network
or computer. 12. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM.
13. Replace the formatter.
The message is indicative that the software is not meant for Vista. Perhaps what you can do is to proceed to the Canon site search for and download Vista compatible driver for your printer. Alternately you can try here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
