Starting up i get PXE-E61 media test failure some people tell me its the hard drive some say the cddrve others say it could be trying to boot from a LAN


PXe Boot is used by the computer to boot to a network DOS-type environment.If you are receiving a PXe failure message on bootup check that your PC is set to boot from the CD Rom, Floppy, and Hard Drive BEFORE network or other boot device.

That's where you need to check to get solution to your problem, if not... try these


1. your settings in your bios
2. faulty cable/wire to your media device (hard drive, cd/dvd rom, etc)
3. The cmos battery (which indirectly points to your bios settings)



Hope this helps!

My acer aspire 5100 keepson giving me PXE-ROM error and I take the realtek card of the boot priority and put the first boot as cd-rom and 2nd as HDD. Then i put my vista disk in but it doe not start but...


If you've disabled the LAN option in the BIOS (or put it at the bottom of the boot order) then forget the CD and go back into BIOS and put the HDD as first in the boot order. If the laptop will not boot to the HDD then it is almost certainly the problem.

I got lucky once with this problem on an Acer by just telling the BIOS to go back to Default and the machine booted normally afterwards.

My laptop won't boot from cd


to reset the BIOS, there is a small battery somewhere in your computer. if you unplug it for 3 seconds, it will reset the BIOS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS! get a service professional. If this doesn't work you might need to get a new laptop.

Acer aspire 3515 reboot


Hopefully, though, there's just some craziness going on with the Boot

....suggests that the error messages you are seeing are from a failed
attempt to boot from a network source.

Check the boot order in your BIOS to insure that the hard drive is
fairly high in the list. Generally, I have it something like this:

(1) Floppy Drive
(2) CD-ROM
(3) Hard Drive

If you do this, will it boot from the hard drive?

Will it boot from a bootable CD?

My Toshiba Satellite A135 is having a bad problem. it will not boot up. It says Media test failure check cable.. Does this mean my hard drive went out?


This message is primarily seen when the PC is attempting to boot from a network, and that network connection is no longer present. The error message would read PXE-E61: Media test failure / Check computer. Is this your message?

If it is, you need to go into the BIOS, and make sure that the sequence is 1) CD-ROM 2) HDD 3) FDD (if you have a floppy) 4) LAN (if you choose to leave the LAN there). Otherwise, switch option 1 and option 2. If the problem is the hard drive, however, putting the CD-ROM first will allow you to boot from your Windows CD.

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Boot cd-rom type:cd-rom/non-emulation booting


No, it's because Microsoft changed the way boot CDs work with SP2. You need an old CD (Windows XP SP1). I had the same problem here, notebook without floppy, it won't boot from the newer XP version CDs (SP2 or SP3) - but an old SP1 CD works!
(Those were all original Microsoft CDs, and the SP2 / SP3 CDs boot just fine on several other PCs I tested. It's just that some old hardware has a problem with the boot mode used on newer Windows CDs.)

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
