This means that your pc didn't found operating system in the drives that tried to boot from. To make it simpler:
1. Your hard disk isn't accesible by the system (solution: check the bios settings)
2. You haven't installed (or it's disconnected) a hard disk (solution: install one or check the connections)
3. You're trying to boot with a non bootable cd (solution: use a bootable one)
4. Your cd/dvd rom is not accessed by the system (solution: check the bios settings)
There are some more minnor cases but I don't have enough details for your case and I don't want to make you in panic.

SOURCE: PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE

The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

Operating system not found dell inspiron


There are some possibilities:
1. There is a bootable device (such as USB flash drive) attached to this laptop, but the device does not have proper operating system,
2. There is a media in the DVD drive, and it does not contain proper bootable system,
3. The hard drive is dead, so the laptop does not find any bootable device,
4. The hdd boot sector is damaged,
5. The required boot files are missing or damaged.

You can check:
- 1 & 2: check the laptop and the dvd tray,
- 3, 4 & 5: Check using DVD reinstallation media. It will check and try to install an operating system, so it will detect the previous operating system. There is an option to repair the previous operating system, so you need to read the available options. If you have valuable data in this hard drive, then you need to take out the hard drive and copy the data to the other data storage.

No operating system found


The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB...



Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

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.

PXE-E61:MEDIA TEST FAILURE PXE-M0F:EXITING BROADCOME PXE ROM


hello, sounds like bad hard drive. here is what you can try, go in to BIOS and reset it factory default save and exit, let the system start again go back in BIOS and check to see if you see your hard drive there, also this time disable Boot from Network option. seeif your system actually starts up... or you get "no operating system found", if you saw the HDD in BIOS and get no operating system found, you can try reinstalling windows.
if you still media test failure and it loops, you need a new hard drive.

let me know if it helps...
good luck
