    I got this problem as well.

    It happened when I tried to restore my OS using the Toshiba Restore CD.

    But... my Laptop (while connected to AC) will not hold a charge long enough for it to complete the install processes.

    I'm trying to update my Bios on my A75-S226 because some people say a New Bios update fixes the charge problem... but can not do it.

    The options for a Bios update with a floppy and my laptop does not have a floppy, so i have to use a CD, and I made 5 of them already and none will boot up.

    So I'm stuck with the same error as above.

    Buenas tardes, me llamao Diego. Tengo el mismo problema me aparece el mismo mensaje al tratar de iniciar mi laptop (Toshiba A75). El problema se dió cuando traté de recuperar el sistema con los discos de restauraciín de Toshiba, estaba avanzando sin problemas, al final se reinició y me desplegó el mensaje. Si pueden ayudarme les agradecería mucho.

I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable


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. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is 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.

The system is not finding any bootable media (Hard Drive) and is attempting to boot via the network card (PXE Boot) the error message is saying that there is not PXE network to boot from and it is exiting the process.
Generally, this is caused by a hard Drive failure. Reseat the drive and or drive connections and see if the system will find the hard drive.

It is beacuse your Hard drive is not detected on the computer properly.
Try resetting BIOS.
If that doesnt work, Check whether your hard drive is good.

PXE-E61 media test failure on Acer Aspire 5050 laptop


Yes, your analysis of the problem is correct. The problem could be with the hardware & while you are trying to reinstall the Windows OS, the software checks on all hardwares before installing. The best solution would be to take your system to a nearest service provider & get the problem rectified. Once the problem is rectified by them, try to reinstall the OS along with them, so that if there is any other problem apart from the above they will be able to help you.

Wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop


Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.
