Leila, repairing a hard drive or replavcing it in a laptop is difficult due the the number of screws and bits and pices one has to remove to get to it. I suggest you take it to a computer specialist that deals with the brand of laptop near you New disk varies depending on size but average about$160.00 and min 2 hrs labor @ $90 and hour. The decision is is it cheaper to upgrade than repair?

Error message on dv 1000 pxe-mof and pxe-e61


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.

I have a dell inspiron 1318. whenever i turn the laptop on, there is a black screen with a "read disk error has occured" message...it keeps bringing me back to the same screen...what should i do?


Disk read error is indicative of a hard disk drive failure. If under warranty, call Dell for a replacement drive. If not you can buy drives at places like Newegg.com or EBay

I have evo n610c laptop but when ever i turn on the laptop itgives a messege that non disk system or disk error with some sort of noice coming from hard drive


This error message could be caused by the laptop not detecting the hard drive.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard disk
If not the hard disk may be faulty or needs reseating. If the hard disk is faulty it needs to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk.
A virus program may have infected the computer and removed or changed some system files - in this case Windows needs to be repaired OR Windows re-installed - this is the best option.

A disk read error occured and keep on re-start


Please check that the hard disk is connected properly. If you know that the hard disk is working, check whether it is detected or not. If it's not detected, you'll need to recheck it again with the power supply. If possible, try it to another Laptop so that you can make sure that Hdd isn't the culprit. In case it's detected and the problem still persists, repair the operating system installation, this will definitely solve your problem. Good luck.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.


This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.

What does ' a disk read error occurred press ctr alt del to restart, everytime i do it it gives me the same error??


You could have a hard drive problem. To check the hard drive boot up to the Windows XP cd in repair mode. At the C prompt type: chkdsk /r
This will start a program called Check Disk that will evaluate your hard drive and attempt to fix any errors. it Check Disk is successful it will complete 100% and return to a C prompt. You can then attempt to reboot. If Check Disk finds unrecoverable errors you will need to purchase a new hard drive and rebuild the OS.
