    Operating system not found

    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.

    here we test functionality.on? or off?

    Now we go to your computer,
    start my network connection
    run wizard in my network places
    select new connection
    follow prompts to the end.

    open internet explorer
    if web page opens then we are done and finished,
    open tools and internet options,
    connections and then lan settings
    select automatically detect
    Apply then close
    Test webpage again,
    when ok shut down and restart,
    to save the computers new settings ,

    Computer modem and dial tone

    Hello Mikenrgrsvll

    This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
    Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
    Windows XP
    1. Click Start
    2. Select Control Panel
    3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
    4. Click Phone and Modem Options
    5. Select the Modem Tab
    6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
    7. Click the Properties button
    8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
    9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
    10. Select the Advanced tab
    11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
    12. Click OK twice
    13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
    14. Close Control Panel
    if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

    hope this helps, have a good day.

    Wrong modem driver, I think

    go to the website for the manufacturer and you can get the drivers.

    It won't hurt a thing to reinstall the correct drives. the worst that can happen is nothing changes
