Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I truned on my ACER EXTENSA 5420 and it would not boot. The Acer insignia with the white screen popped up but just sits there. Eventually, the system will change screens and later a black screen pops up saying: PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE PXE-M0F: EXITING PXE NOW Operating System not found The system sits there and does nothing. I have tried numerous things with no results. Any advice?

Your hard drive is not working. This could be either the drive is dead, needs to be be reseated (removed and put back in), or the controller had failed.

The PXE message is your laptop trying to boot from the network adaptor.

Go into the setup menu at start screen and check if your Hard drive and dvd/cd drive are being detected. Also put a bootable cd into the drive and see if it boots from that. If it does, then just remove the disc since we don't want to install anything to the hard drive in reality. It is just to test if it is booting from there.

Post back any further info after you have done this.

How to upgrade to window 7?


Do you have the Windows 7 disk? If so, just pop it in your disc drive, restart your computer, and follow the steps from there. If your computer just goes to your current operating system, then you have to change the boot order in your system's BIOS. You do that by hitting F2, or some other button that will be listed at the bottom of the screen, while the system boots. Hope this helps!
