Hi, UNDI is a shorthand for Universal Network Driver Interface.
CAUSE OF ERROR: It sounds as if you are having some trouble with your NIC {Network Interface Card}.This error message can occur if no network adapter is detected in your computer or if no connection to the network is detected when the network adapter is initialized.
RESOLUTION: To resolve this issue, perform network troubleshooting on the hardware.Check the network adapter cable, cable type, hub, router and so on.Also check the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that the network adapter is disabled.Try logging in safe mode and then disable your NIC in control panel.Reboot and see if that solves the problem.If it does you can start looking around for an updated driver or perhaps a new card.Enter the safe mode by pressing the F8 keywhile booting up. Also try doing a system restoreto a earlier point.This also fix your problem.
Thanks for using fixya....Best Wishes...Wish you a happy New year..

If you starts it, there is black screen with the message: media test failure


Go into the BIOS settings at boot up. Disable the option to boot from network, that must solve it :)

I have a fiujitsu hard drive in my acer aspire 5315 my keyboard has no keys just some rubber tips and when i turn on its says broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v10. 0. 9 copyright yada yada and then it says: PXE-E61:...


The keyboard needs replacing. Replacement keyboard for your laptop maybe available from this WEB site.
PXE-E61 ERROR
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.

The system is not longer detecting your hard disk drive. You can try removing and re-seating the hard drive (Usually just a couple screws involved in removing the hard drive) and see if it detects. More than likely, the drive has failed, you will need to get a new drive and re-load Windows and all drivers and applications.
If still under warranty, contact Toshiba support

Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* internal disk-drive
* internal CD/DVD drive
* internal 3.5" drive
* external USB device (memory stick, external CD drive, et cetera)
* via your network-adapter -- trying to connect to a "boot-server"

So, restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Be sure that the disk-drive *IS* listed.
If you want, exclude the "network" boot-device,
since the error-messages that you are seeing are indicating that *NO* boot-server exists on your network.

What the messages *COULD* imply is that there is no media in the CD/DVD drive,
no media in the 3.5" drive, nothing "bootable" connected via a USB port,
*AND* that your computer *TRIED* but *FAILED* to boot from your disk-drive.

That is, your disk-drive either is electrically disconnected (no power reaching it)
or electronically disconnected (the "data" cable is not attached)
or that the disk-drive itself is "dead".

Take your computer to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.
You may have to replace the "dead" disk-drive with a brand-new one.

Can't boot up without a boot disk


Your computer has been configured to try to "boot" by loading the Operating System from a network-connected "boot-server". Since you're _NOT_ likely to have such a "boot-server" in your home-network, the error-messages that you get are what are _expected_ when your computer is _NOT_ connected via the Ethernet cable to a 'PXE' (Pre-Boot Execution Environment) boot-server.

Enter BIOS-setup, and disable the "boot from network" option.

Can t boot up no disk to do so , broadcom undi pxe-2.1 v10.0.9 error saying pxe-e61: media test failure, pxe-m0f: exiting broandcom pxe rom


sounds like a hard drive failure (no disk) so it is trying to boot from a network (pxe error).
You can reload windows if you have the CD. If it finds the hard drive you will have to run a repair - if you are lucky you will have your data.
If it doesn't give you the option of a repair, you will have to do a clean install (and lose all data).
If you can't install windows, you will need to buy a new hard drive - make sure you get the right type (SATA or PATA). Remove your old one first and see which one you have. It will say on the hard drive, and if it is SATA it will have a narrow cable (less than 1/2"). If it is PATA it will be a wide cable (2-3 inches).
Google the internet for details on whichever option do.

I own a Hi-Grade Via 14'' (VE8569)Notebook and until last night haven't had any problems with it - but for some reason when I turning it on, I am getting a black screen with the following message: Intel...


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 this does not work then reboot and go to 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.
Next - to determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files, this confirm the hard drive is faulty.
The hard drive needs to be replaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device drivers and your programs etc to get a working laptop again.

In this case you will need to use the data recovery programs such as Stellar to get the data recovered. After recovering the data, format the Hard Disk and check for any errors on it. You may also try changing the USB cable first to check if the drive gets initialized?
