This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in bios or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive. To resolve this issue, run scandisk to check if the hard drive have develop a bad sector. Double click mycomputer and right click drive C: and select properties,tools,check now and check the the two options in the check this option windows and reboot your computer. During the reboot of computer the scandisk is check your harddisk after the scandisk finished scanning you can read the result if you see the bad sector or cluster found it's mean that your hard drive is damage in you need to replace it to correct the error. But if no bad sector found try to remove the software or hardware that you installed before the problem is occured go to control panel then add and remove software. if you have a registry scanner software like pctools registry mechanic try to run it to fix the problem in the registry.

Media test failure ideacentre 320


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.

NO BOOTABLE DEVICE FOUND,


You probably have a mbr virus.

Download The following iso listed below. It is the latest version of the Kaspersky rescue disk. You need to burn it to a CD with a program like Imgburn (Which is also FREE like the iso file). Then you need to boot from the CD and run the scanner. It should fix you right up.

Kaspersky rescue cd download:

Hi. I have an Acer laptop that is shutting down after 10-15 mins, and when trying to restart comes up with the following message - PXE-E61: Media test failure - check cable. Closely followed by -...


Your Acer is trying to boot from Network and not hard drive.

You will have to go into the set-up utility(BIOS) and de-select network as a boot option.
