Error code 22 usually points to a device that has not been enabled, media failure cable check is where the OS is looking for a boot drive such as a CD rom or hard drive boot record.

In order, try the following
1.) Remove any DVDs and usb devices from the laptop and try to reboot
2.) Under the laptop, there is an inspection hatch for the hard drive, remove and check if there is actually a hard drive installed, make sure it is firmly connected
3.) On boot up, access the Bios (might be F1 or Del or F10) and see if the DVD rom drive and the hard drive are listed in the bios and are set in the Boot order.
4.) If all the above check out, try inserting a Windows installation disc and see if the computer will try to boot from that (dont install windows, just go through the stages untiol it "finds" the drive, see if there is already an OS on the drive
5.) If there is not an OS on the drive, install windows, see if it works ok.

If the above do not work, please repost along with any other codes

Media test failure


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.

Usually when a computer displays a "Media Test Failure" message, it is a good indicator that the hard drive is/has failed. The solution would be to replace the hard drive in the laptop.

PXE-E61 Media test failure


See this on-line thread from other users. I'd be leary about the posts that advocated hitting the laptop...

Portable computers can suffer from bad connections easily, so the first thing you should check are that all cables and other connections are tight and seated firmly.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable Pxe-M0f: Exiting Broadco


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

My laptop says a disk red error occurred and will not boot up it goes in circles asking for restarts and says the same thing also iam getting this message as well PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK...


"PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE"
This means that the motherboard and harddrive are not communicating correctly, there is no data cable to connect the harddrive to the motherboard on a laptop the harddrive connecting plug is soldered directly to the the motherboard.
Either your harddrive is dying, or your motherboard has gone faulty. Laptop repairs are quite involved, if you are not familiar with taking laptops apart I would suggest you get profesional help with this problem.
If you want to have a go yourself I can point you in the direction of websites I use when doing laptop repairs.

Error Message: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable


Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
