Well i can say that your nephew is correct.
I should open it up and just look for lose cables.
Usally the screws are easy enough to spot.
make sure that you are grounded when you open it up, for example touch a element before you start working, dont touch your hair etc.

Hopefully its just a cables or else the hardware has gone broken.

    just whant to point out its not screws you are supposed to look for but loose cables. perhaps it was a mistype on your end but just whanted to make sure.



    usally you open laptops from underneath.

    Be very carefull, as i get the felling you have never done things like this before i would suggest you to call a friend that has some knowledge in computers.

Working off of my experience with a computer with a flaky power connection to the hard drive and when the drive fails to spin up there no operating system to read. I get the same message. Reach in, jiggle a wire and restart and it's good to go.

You either have a failed hard drive or it is not spinning up, or the operating system on the drive is unreadable due to corruption.

Laptop won'y start up has non-system disk or disk error


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Non system disk or disk error


This error can be a couple of things. If the "boot block" on the disk has become faulty, the system won't recognize that the disk has an operating system on it and will generate this error message. If the disk is defective completely, the same error will occur. If you have a boot floppy or CD, try re-writing the boot block on the disk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the disk is defective and will need to be replaced.

Problem with monitor


Hi Gabzie,

Don't worry regarding that the issue regarding the display could be probably you try changing the brightness when you  are plugged with  you power  supply and regarding the non system disk error may at that point of time the system has taken both the hard disk and dvd drive as master that is the reason you have got this message if this repeats then please provide me the serial no. and product no of the notebook and where do you live so that i'll guide you.
