Strange Noises not booting up, says there is a "media test failure, check cable"
It woked fine the other day, was letting my roommate use it for summer school and it overheatded (surprise surprise). I tried turning it back on after it shut down and now it is showing "PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, Check cable". Any help would be great. I love this computer, haven't had any problems with it aside from overheating and would absolutely hate to have to go buy another one. Thanks

If your computer is working fine, then disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, that's why the media test failure is displayed. It's usually used to load an OS image from network.
For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image. If there is a problem (won't boot) then it lost communications to hard drive, and you need to check BIOS for hard drive.
I am sorry that the Computer is not booting. Please try accessing the BIOS by pressing the F2 key or Del key. In the BIOS windiow, press F9 to reset the BIOS to its default values. If you have the service manual of the Computer, please remove the back panel of the Notebook and reconnect the Hard Drive cable.
"PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot" 1.Go to Bios Settings 2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option. 3.Save The configuration(F10) This Will Solve this problem
hy i have your solution.its simple. the problem is remote network data entry that start in the bios systems, produce by a virus call downloader.trojan or bootable Tj.exe, normally the bios has to read it and it gives the error " media test faliurecheck cables",ir you dont repaired quickly your laptop or desktop eventually will not boot the windows att all, this have to be kill before that happens, First of all clean your pc with Trojan Remover and then do just a simple task restart your desktop or laptop and do not let it initiate windows just press F2 at the bios and go to the Bios program and then go to the tab name Bios and press F9 that means "default bios systems" and everything will change in your bios and when your desktop or pc restart it will never show that message again and your bios will initiate with no problems and the virus that put that into your pc will no longer control your bios system.
Do you have the PXE error? The media failure is in the boot sequence, on the toshiba press F12 on boot to change boot priority, select cd/dvd or hard drive, or to preclude from happening, press F2 on boot enter BIOS, select Boot options make sure to set priority as cd/dvd, then hard drive, then network or disable network boot. network booting causes media failure.
