Question about Computers & Internet
I start up my toshiba equium a60 and it say that there is a media test failure and it wont start up windows properly
Hi scotty, you'll need to re-check all your data & power cables in the PC. Play it safe, unplug the power from the PC & ground yourself by touching the bare case before grabing any internal connectors.
Than upplug & re-connect every data & power cable on every device in your PC. When finished go into your bios & check that all devices have beed seen by the bios. Hard drive, CDROM drives, floppy drive & or serial ATA SATA drives. While in the bios re-check your Boot order. Most PC's set floppy drive first, CDROM second & SATA / IDE third. Also set plug & play OS to NO. This allows the bios to set IRQ's instead of windows.
Save & exit bios. Load your windows back into the cdrom drive & when you boot the PC your windows should load. You'll see Press any key to load CD.......... Press any key.
This time around preform a quick format on the drive, than install windows.
Have more questions, feel free to ask!
Good Luck & Have a Great Day!

Do you have the PXE error?
The media failure is in the boot sequence, on the toshiba press F12 on boot to change boot priority, select cd/dvd or hard drive, or to preclude from happening, press F2 on boot enter BIOS, select Boot options make sure to set priority as cd/dvd, then hard drive, then network or disable network boot. network booting causes media failure.
