Question about Toshiba TE2100 Notebook
Hi, I have a toshiba 2100 and been working fine for the past months but when I turned on my laptop it showed up this message:
Intel (R) Boot Agent Version 4.0.18
Copyright (C) 1997-2001, Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM>
Insert system disk in drive.
Press any key when ready....
Can you help me please?
First, try and access your cmos setup. Look to see if your harddrive shows up.

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

Hi. I think the problem on this one is its either your Harddrive has already failed or your Optical Drive has a cd inside, so double check your Optical drive if there is a disc inside it. If not this issue is also with the operating system, you can try to restore your system by pressing the One Key recovery(OKR) button found beside the power button which has a logo of an arching arrow, but remember to plugin first the ac adapter on your laptop before pressing the One Key Recovery Button and also do not press the power button to turn on your computer because when you press the OKR button it will automatically turn on your computer and proceed with the recovery process. When it gives you some option you should choose One Key Recovery and then choose System Recovery, then factory default and from there it will guide you to the whole process of recovering your machine. If this doesnt fix the issue you could also try using the Recovery disc to restore your sytem t its original settings just like the OKR. Lastly you can contact the tech support dept. of Lenovo, they are open 24/7 and this the number to contact:
US/Canada: Available 24/7 1-877-4LENOVO (1-877-453-6686)
Australia: Available 24/7 1300-557-073
New Zealand: 9am-9pm Mon-Fri 0800-446-833. Hope this helps

SOURCE: it appears INTEL(R)BOOT AGENT CE
This means that the motherboard is dead - it no longer detects its own southbridge chip, the one that controls the hard disk.
Time for a new laptop.

looks like it's unable to find the harddrive to boot from.
It's trying to boot from a network location now.
Try entering the bios and see if you have an option to run a scan on the harddrive
Also check the boot options - make sure that it starts from the harddrive BEFORE it tries to boot from network.
