Vista OS is corrupt...you may need to re-install the OS....
some or many of the required files to load the OS is corrupt or missing...
the solution: Re-install Vista OS or Win7 or XP....
if your have your HD partitiond and have only OS and re-instalable programs in C: / and keep your critical data in say D: or E:..drive.....then you just need to format only C: and install the OS again....

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 error message PXE-E61 is Network card that try to conect this is because hard drive failure or Operating System
check on the bios if you can see the hard drive if you see the drive it could be the OS
reboot your laptop , read the screenwhen it says press ? for boot menu press (f8) for bios
press the one that says boot menu and then when it asks you where to boot choose the one that says hard drive. when that boots up and works. you need to restart your pc and press the f8 one to go into bios, then go to the boot tab, and change it to boot 1st from your hdd. somehow it got changed and it is looking somewhere else for the boot directions and its making errors
It is trying to bbot up using network boot because it cannot find OS on the hard drive, you can turn off the network in the BIOS setup page, but more likely you have problem with the hard drive or the OS is corrupted.
You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote
server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message
before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive
in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted
directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the
laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available
device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a
remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting
PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive
and reinstall the operating system.
Disable booting up to network device. If it cant find the HD then it will try the next device, which is usually the network device. If it says No Operating System Found, then there is a problem with your HD and you will need either replace, repair, or restore.
check your harddrive, is it detected in bios ?
if no, it could be motherboard or hdd, but most of the time is hdd problem, so just replace it.
if yes, your operating system is corrupt, so you can reload your operating system.
hy i have your solution.its simple. the problem is remote network data entry that start in the bios systems, produce by a virus call downloader.trojan or bootable Tj.exe, normally the bios has to read it and it gives the error " media test faliurecheck cables",ir you dont repaired quickly your laptop or desktop eventually will not boot the windows att all, this have to be kill before that happens, First of all clean your pc with Trojan Remover and then do just a simple task restart your desktop or laptop and do not let it initiate windows just press F2 at the bios and go to the Bios program and then go to the tab name Bios and press F9 that means "default bios systems" and everything will change in your bios and when your desktop or pc restart it will never show that message again and your bios will initiate with no problems and the virus that put that into your pc will no longer control your bios system.
