    Same issue. Did not actually see the bit about the media cable, the owner did. When I try to boot it, it goes to the hp splash, then very quickly to a backlit, black screen, and no hd actitivity. Tried resetting the bios, no dice. Tried taking out the battery and running on ac, no dice there either. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions!
    Thanks,
    Dave

This error message may appear when the computer BIOS is set to boot from a network and cannot find a bootable operating system on the network or on any of the storage devices included in the notebook PC's boot path.

The following steps are for most HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario Notebook PCs. The boot order can be configured on the Advanced tab in the BIOS settings menu. The steps to modify the boot order may vary depending on the model of your computer. On most HP notebooks the boot order can be configured using the following steps:

  1. Turn on or restart the computer.
  2. While the display is blank, press the F10 key to enter the BIOS settings menu. NOTE: Some notebook PCs use the F2 or F6 key.
  3. Use the right and left arrow keys to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Boot Order .
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to change the boot order.
Reset the boot order to the default settings Use the following steps to reset the boot order to the default settings:
  1. Turn on or restart the computer.
  2. While the display is blank, press the F10 key to enter the BIOS settings menu.
  3. Press the F9 key to reset the BIOS to default settings.
  4. Press the F10 to save the changes and exit the BIOS settings menu.

I think it will you to fix your problem.
If still have problem then tell me more about it.

HP media center pc ,1170n will not boot. black screen. You can hear the fan come on but black screen.


Sounds like a capacitor has blown on the motherboard, but before condemning it, check the following:
1.) Does the CPU fan turn and does the heatsink get warm after a few minutes?
(This indicates that power is at least getting to the CPU
2.) Check connections of ALL the main power connectors (ie: the 20/24 pin plug to the mainboard and the smaller 4 pin plug to the mainboard.
(If not firmly inserted will stop the board from firing up)
3.) Check the graphics card is firmly seated and test with anew graphics card to eliminate the issue being with the graphics card / check tightness of the VGA cable to monitor and card
4.) Remove all but the main power and 4 pin power plugs and try rebooting to eliminate hard drive or DVD drive failure
5.) Remove and replace each ram module in turn try booting in between
6.) If you have a spare PSU, replace the existing one and test the board using that, sometimes the PSU appears to work, but lacks power to fire up the board.

After all that, you are down to the mobo or CPU, you can try a new CPU, but I feel that the issue is with a blown capacitor or a burned circuit trace, only close inspection of the mobo will reveal bulging, leaking or blown capacitiors (small cylinder like things on the motherboard)

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

HP rp5700 appears dark and its not the touch


Disconnect the monitor cable from the computer tower, turn on the monitor, if no display available, the monitor gone bad, else if getting message " Check video cable", either the data cable for connecting the monitor to the tower needs to be changed or the motherboard needs to be tested thoroughly.

Replaced my hard drive on my hp lap top and i cannot load the restore disk it is hp ze4800 i dont know how to get it load error code pxe e61


HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Error: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure s.gif s.gif
This document pertains to HP or Compaq desktop computers with Windows XP. The following error message appears: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure This error is probably occurring because the main bootable hard drive is no longer "connected" to the computer and the next usable bootable device in the boot path is the network card. Use the following steps to resolve the error: NOTE: If the computer was recently moved or bumped, make sure the hard drive cables are firmly attached to the motherboard and the hard drive before using the steps in this document. Step 1: Remove all removable storage devices Remove connected devices, remove power, and restart the computer:
  1. Disconnect any, personal media drives, pocket media drives, USB or 1394 (Firewire) devices that are attached to the computer, especially USB thumb drives.
  2. Remove any CD and DVD discs from their drives.
  3. If the computer has a floppy disk drive, remove any floppy disks from the drive.
  4. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the computer.
  5. Disconnect the power cable to the computer.
  6. With the power cable disconnected, press the power button again for five seconds. This may reset the firmware for the hard drive to its defaults .
  7. Plug in the power cable only and turn on the computer.
  8. If the error persists, go to the next step. If the computer starts without the error, one of the removable storage volumes may be preventing the computer from starting or the hard drive was not reponding. Do not leave the removable device in the computer when shutting the computer off. You are done.
Step 2: Make sure a network device is not selected as the first boot device in BIOS The computer may be attempting to boot from the network device.
  1. Turn on the computer by pressing the power button on the PC and press the F1 key repeatedly when the first screen opens.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT screen (from the menu at the top of the screen).
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT Device Priority (or similar).
  4. Press Enter .
  5. Read the instructions on the page to move any reference to a netwrok device to the bottom of the list. You should also move the optical drive (ODD) to the top of the list.
  6. Once the selections have been made, press F10 to Save settings and exit.
Step 3: Test the Hard Drive Test the hard drive using the SMART hard drive test:
  1. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the computer.
  2. Press the F1 key repeatedly after the computer is turned on. A BIOS setup utility should appear.
  3. After the BIOS Setup Utility is displayed, use the Down Arrow key to select the hard disk drive name and press Enter .
  4. Select SMART Extended Self-Test , press Enter , and wait for the test to complete.
  5. If the test fails, the hard drive should be replaced. If the test passes, go to the next step to update the BIOS.
Step 4: Update the BIOS Download and install the latest BIOS for your computer . If, after updating the BIOS and restarting the computer, the error goes away, you are done. If the error persists or a BIOS update is unavailable, go to the next step to recover the computer. Step 5: Recover the operating system To reinstall the Windows XP operating system, perform a system recovery (or reinstall Windows if the computer was upgraded to XP). You may need to start the computer from a set of recovery discs (or from a Windows Installation disc if Windows was upgraded to XP). For more information about how to recover the computer, refer to the HP support article Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP . Step 6: Repair the computer If the preceding steps do not resolve the error, the hard drive or BIOS may have failed and the computer should be serviced. if this service info does not work contact me.

Media Test Failure, Check Cable.....


This is an Invalid / Non System Disk error.In your Bios settings change the "First boot device" option to your hard disk.If you have only one hard disk set it to "HDD 0"
Other causes of the problem are:

  1. Floppy or CD that is not bootable is currently in the computer.
  2. Hard disk's power or data cable is not connected properly(loose contact)
