The price you will pay isn't practical to just going out and replace the whole computer,you'll be alot better off financially.

Acer aspire d257 pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable error

Your computer tries to "boot" (start-up) from several devices:
* floppy-disk (if installed)
* disk-drive (if not "dead"),
* CD/DVD optical device (if "bootable" media has been loaded)
* PXE --> Pre-Execution Environment -- checks if there is a connection between the network-adapter on your computer to a "boot-server" on your local network -- it can load Windows from that "boot-server".

The "media-test failure" indicates that there is no network-cable attached to your computer *AND* the other-end of the network-cable is *NOT* connected to the "boot-server". So, you can that "error" message.

Is your disk-drive "dead" ????

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable acer extensa 542

Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy disk
* CD/DVD optical device
* disk-drive
* external CD/DVD
* USB memory stick
* PXE ("Pre eXecution Environment)

To use PXE, you need "media" -- a network cable connecting yur computer to a "boot-server". The "media test faiure, check cable" reports that no network-cable exists, or that it does exist WITHOUT being connected to a boot-server.

Probably, your computer failed to boot from a DEAD disk-drive, and then tried floppy/CD/USB before checking PXE.

Replace the disk-drive.

I Have vertical lines on my laptop what is causing it and how can I get rid of it. Is it the screen itself or just the inverter. There are five lines and my laptop is a Compaq presairo x6050US.

The inverter simply takes the power from the DC power supply and converts it to high voltage AC for the backlight display. Vertical lines are from a loose or damaged data cable that usually connects on the left side, rear of the display or the lcd panel itself is failing and the lines are usually indicative of this type of failure. If you grap the screen on either side and "torque" it or twist it slightly and the lines go away or are diminished, then there maybe a problem at the socket on the back of the display, this is where the data cable attaches. Over time these sockets can get "wallawed" out and not make good contact. The only repair for this socket damage is lcd panel replacement. I doubt it is the cable, but there is always the chance.

How do I install a new CD drive in an old destop computer It is an old Compaq Presario 5WV254 The existing CD drive has a ribbon type connector that mates up to the pins on the drive plus a 4 pin module...

The Compaq Presario SWV254 Desktop PC uses IDE technology, not SATA.
In the specifications for the above Desktop PC, it states ATAPI is used for the interface technology, and connector, for the optical drive/s.

[IDE is also referred to as PATA. Parallel ATA
SATA is Serial ATA.
The PATA designation was implemented, so that computer users could easily distinct between IDE, and SATA technology]

1) The IDE interface cable, (Flat ribbon cable), has a connector on each end with 40 socket holes.
(39 are actually used. Most of the time, one socket hole is blocked off. (Pin 32)

2) The SATA interface cable has 7 contact pins. Also referred to as a Data cable.

3) The IDE devices, (Harddrive and optical drive), use a 4-pin Molex connector for the power cable.

4) The SATA devices use a 15-pin connector on the end of the power cable.

More info on SATA,

The Samsung SH223C optical drive is a SATA device.
You cannot just plug it in.

IF, you have an open, (Available), PCI slot on the motherboard, you can use a SATA adapter card.
The SATA adapter card plugs into the PCI slot, and has the necessary connections on the card, for a SATA interface cable.

Just for the SATA interface cable. Does not have a connection for the SATA power cable, you need.

You have to buy a 4-pin Molex to SATA power cable adapter, and connect it to an available 4-pin Molex power cable, on your power supply.

You will also need a SATA data cable. The interface cable that goes from the SATA adapter card, to the SATA optical drive you're trying to install)

This is an example of a SATA adapter card. It is not an advertisement for said website, nor manufacturer,

AC Adapter Problem

why not buy the correct power pack
matching the power needs of you puter.
each puter needs a watts level, do that or more never less.
only spec tells you what you need,
its in the service guide for you PC.
take out the battery
now run OFF LINE pack
run now? good, does it drop dead if you gently
wiggle the plug at PC port> not moving pack and its cable.
yes, then the PC has a bad power port end cause.

if it is the PC power jack bad
you will never fix it. its real deep and takes totally disassembly to reach.,(done many and do no teach LT guts to anyone)

amazing has your books, and is always there.
read them it specs it out.
yes, power packs go bad, 3 ways, dead, weak, or intermittent.
all do in time, (max life is about 20years,less if overloaded, as i bet you did)
if the PC needs, 50w, do not put in a 30w. use 50 or 75 or 100w
see? or it overheats .the pack,

here is your page (OP)
seems very very old, HP, is fighting me...
needs 19v at 90watts,
$8 to learn what is bad, is this too much>?
old XP LT built in the 1990 its very very old and slow.

Latitude C640 is dead!!

The only solution that I can think of would be a power jack problem. I would not advise replacing the power jack yourself since you have to take out the laptop mother board, de-solder the power jack then solder the new one on and put it back together. My advice would be to take it to a professional computer repair shop and have them take a look at it and replace the power jack. It is worth getting repaired since power jacks usually range $40-$70.
