Your computer is trying to boot from LAN. Somehow the boot order got changed in the BIOS. Access the BIOS and set the first boot device to the hard drive.

Maybe its a hard disk problem or a software issue. Do you have a boot disk? Try this Download Hirens BootCD 15 2 HBCD Fan Discussion Platform , that's a good tool to format disks and other things.

I have a toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 with windows 7 and it shows pxe-mof exiting intel pxe rom... no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key. any help to restore my computer? Thanks


Try a "Cold-Start",Remove all media, DVD, CD, USB..etc., Remove AC plug, Remove Battery, Hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, Replace battery, Plug into AC outlet,Push on/off button and Start normally.
IF THAT FAILS, try F-8 during pre boot, try to get to safe mode, or F12 to enter restore /recovery. After each try cold start, remove battery during this process.

Laptop won't start up


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.
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.

This indicates hard drive issues, or windows files have been corrupted. If you have a backup disk try and load windows, no change! have the hard drive tested for possible replacement.

My toshiba satellite pro 4600 laptop has a error PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable and PXE-MOF existing Intel PXE ROM


Hi,

This error relates to an antiquated boot system used mostly for dumb terminals. It's coming up because the laptop isn't detecting a hard drive that is bootable or a bootable dvd so it continues down it's list of options and tries to boot from your network card.

This means the harddrive in your laptop is damaged or failing. If there's nothing of importance on the drive or if whatever important stuff is on there is backed up elsewhere. Buy a new drive(or have your local PC shop put one in) and use the factory Toshiba restore disks to get up and running again.

If you do have important files on the drive you can still get it up and running, but save the old drive(pack in an anti-static bag), and contact www.armor-it.com for professional assistance retreiving whatever files you need from the failing drive.

Let me know how you make out or if you need further assitance.
