Re: operating system not found
I probably meant to say "reseat" the memory. Just remove the memory module(s) and reinsert them in their slots. This problem can also sometimes be resolved by reseating the hard drive. I had this happen to me just the other night. The laptop slid off of my lap and fell to the floor. Just fell about a foot and a half, and didn't hit all that hard. Kinda partially caught it as it went. But the laptop didn't like it and I had a message of "Operating system not found". Reseating the hard drive had me up and running in about 30 seconds. Ron-

This is because the Bios doesn't find where to boot from and it tries to boot from lan. Take out the hdd, put it back and try again. Try also with another hdd. Check the bios to see the boot order. Post here results !
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.
Generally, a Hard drive failure
This error is a result of your computer not finding the operating system. This is usually the case when the hard drive has failed. You will need to take the computer to a technician to replace the hard drive and have windows reinstalled.
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable (of the HARD DISK pls)
pls first check the hard disk seated in the bottom left side of ur notebook u have to take out the 7 or 8 screws first and then take take it out by pulling the connector gently and try to re seat or re fit the hard disk so connector can seat firmly in hard disk and then power up ur notebook if Error persists
then sorry to tell u my friend that ur Hard disk has CRASHED and not giving up files for OS loading kindly replace ur HARD DRIVE and restore ur OS thru backup disk u got
Pls take care of ur notebook from bumps and falls and hard impacts during operation and carrying bcoz the disk inside the HDD is very sensitive and gets damaged easily by impacts
check your harddrive, is it detected in bios ?
if no, it could be motherboard or hdd, but most of the time is hdd problem, so just replace it.
if yes, your operating system is corrupt, so you can reload your operating system.
The BIOS, which handles the initial start up of your computer, cannot find your hard drive and thus cannot boot your operating system (ie, Windows). Open up your computer and confirm the power cable is firmly connected to the hard drive and that the cable that connects the hard drive to the motherboard is firmly secure.
If both of these check out, then try downloading this bootable CD on another computer. This CD, among other things, has a few hard drive utilities that will help further diagnose the problem.
Finally, if the utilities on this CD are unable to see the hard drive itself, then is may need to be replaced. Try testing with another hard drive or another cable to connect it to the motherboard.
