This is a normal set of messages for a computer that is configured to attempt to boot off of a network server. Most home computers and laptops don't normally do this. If you never saw this before, booting from the network is probably the last try the computer makes before giving up. Basicially it is telling you that there is no valid boot device to start the computer from. It used to use your hard drive, but now it cannot because it has been disabled in the BIOS or the hard drive has died. You can check this by hitting the key to enter the BIOS Setup program (generally F10 or Del, it tells you when it is booting up) and making sure that the system does see your hard drive properly in the BIOS and ensuring that it is either first or second in the boot order.

It is trying to boot from the network, basically from the internet cable that can be plugged in. If you enter the bios you can typically disable the PXE boot option so it won't show up again.

A "media test failure, check cable" means your hard disk failed. The bios can not locate the boot sector of the hard disk to begin loading the operating system.
"Operating system not found" means windows can't load because the Bios can not find the operating system (because the hard disk failed).

This is pretty much an unrecoverable error in terms of fast fixes. You can take the hard disk to a data recovery service if you need to retrieve important data or files.

usually, this message means that when your computer is booting it is trying get the operating system files from a network location (shared folder)

what you need to do is to make sure your BIOS is not set to boot from network.

1. when the computer starts, there is a message like "to enter BIOS press Esc" or any other key like F2 or F10
2. in the BIOs settings, make sure the order of the boot is: DVD/CD then hard disk. make sure there is no Network booting in the list

Error Message: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable


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.
