F61 code door won't open


Error E61 is generated when the door is locked but open.


Switch the appliance off.

After 5 minutes, use a thin screwdriver to push the lock to the right and then release it.

Restore the power, close the door and try the machine on a spin programme.


If you are still having trouble after this, let me know what actually happens when you try to use the appliance. The more detail you give the better.


Hope this helps

Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.

Gateway M-6843 laptop does not recognize hard drive. Get the following error on start up. PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM Operating System not found The hard drive also...


The ticking sound is known as the "click of death". After a while the bearings in the hard drive get worn down, and the read head has trouble finding the data you want. In this case the drive puts the read head back to "square one" so it can try to trace its steps back to the wanted data. this makes a click noise. Thus the "click of death". Im sorry to say you need a new hard drive, and that your data is likely inaccessible without drastic measures. One method you can try is putting the hard drive in the freezer for 10 minutes. This will stiffen the bearings and may give you a couple of minutes to grab some data. You will want to have your new drive installed and windows loaded on it so you can readily access the data through a usb to sata/ide cable, which you can get on line fairly cheap. Other options are services like OnTrack, who have a team of engineers who open drives and pull the platters and try to get your data, but you are looking at thousands of dollars just for them to try.

Gateway desktop 700xl computer stops at the logo screen and stops


I presume that your logo screen reads 'windows xp'. If so, there might be a problem with one of your startup drivers. Try to boot the computer in safe mode and uninstall any recently installed hardware or software and try to boot it up. It may be a virus also. So update your antivirus and run a complete scan. To boot in safe mode, hold F8 key when you're switching on your computer. you should see a screen which would give you the boot up options. Select "Safe mode with networking". This option lets you browse the internet from safe mode in case you need to.

Photo Exploer Runtime Error


My solution:
I found another solution(workaround) instead of reinstalling the program:
1. Try to remember wich devices you used in de Photo explorer (USB-stick, external drive, DVD- CD-drive, or photo-camera connected by USB;
2. You can only start PEX(Photo Explorer) with a volume loaded in this devices!
3. if you don’t remember wich devices you used before, plug in a volume in every device your system has.
4. Start PEX. On my system it is then starting without error!
5. If PEX is normaly started: goto File/Preferences/ (or F6 key), take category Cache and under “History” clean all adresses and maps by clicking the button.
6. Close PEX. Remove all the volume’s you don’t need;
7. Restart PEX. Now the program will start without any error.
8. Advice: each time you use PEX with an external device do action 5. before closing the program.
