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:

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.

SOURCE: Booting problem, screen message: Intel (R)

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.

Error Message PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. what does this mean?


That means your hard disk is not being detected. PXE is a network boot, which is typically used in business environments. Check your BIOS settings and ensure your hard disk is being detected. If it is, make sure your boot order is set correctly. Network boot (PXE) should be set to the last item in the sequence. If the hard disk is properly being detected and an OS is present, you should never see PXE.

If your hard disk is not showing up, power your PC down (unplug the power) and check the cables to make sure they are seated.

First try this unplug from AC, remove battery, plug in try to boot normally. If that fails Open BIOS, Boot Order or the BOOT MENU, Boot from HDD first, and save changes and reboot, if that fails try a system restore/recovery.

Hi Jon.

Go into the BIOS confuguration by pressing the F2 key as the laptop starts up and set the BIOS to its default configuration. Save the changes by pressing the F10 key or save in the BIOS menu. The computer will restart so see if that has made any difference.
If you still get the same IDE #0 error then the hard drive is ready for failing. A replacement hard drive will not cost much at all.
Seeing as you have only spent $20 on the laptop in the first place you have got yourself a bargain there. Spend a liitle money on a new drive and OS then you could have a fully working laptop.




Regards.

HI there,
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 is caused by a failed hard disk. Replace that then borrow a Windows install disk from a friend and install with it and the key on the sticker.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
