Many times this error message indicates a hard drive failure. You will need an operating system disc in order to fix this or determine if the hard drive has failed. There is no other way around it unless you want to take it to a shop for repair. I wouldn't recommend Bestbuy, their very expensive. At Bestbuy you're looking at around $200 just for the system reload, this doesn't include a new hard drive if it has failed. If you decide to do this yourself, again, you will need an operating system disc, then do a system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a fresh operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format or reload, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Operating system is not found. How can I repair this? And the F4 does not work. The laptop is an NC10 mini laptop. Could you please help


Obtain an Operating System disk. Most people use Windows which can be purchased from any online retailer, or you could download ubuntu for free and burn it to a disc. Insert the disc into the tray, and when you boot the machine, go to the boot menu. (usually involves pressing F12 or esc when the BIOS posts). Boot from the disc that you burned and follow the installation steps.

When booting the laptop it says PXE-E61: media


When you start your computer, the motherboard searches connected drives for the operating system. The search order is usually the optical (CD/DVD) drive first, possibly a USB drive next, then the hard drive. If none of these work, some systems are set to try booting the operating system over a network cable. What the cryptic message you're getting is telling you is that the system tried a network boot without success, and that maybe the trouble is a bad cable.

This all means that your hard drive isn't being detected, or that there's no longer an operating system on it. It's possible the connector from the hard drive to the motherboard has come loose, which can sometimes happen since laptops get moved around. The hard drive may have gone bad, or there may be a problem with the motherboard that is causing it not to find the hard drive. Or the hardware may all be fine, but something (a virus or other malware, for instance) has deleted files needed to load Windows.

When the computer first starts, you'll see a message about how to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS is the motherboard's built-in program, and through the setup pages you can see what devices it detects. This will let you know if the hard drive is being found. Some boards include diagnostic tests you can run on the hard drive if problems are found. You can also check the boot order; you may find that for some reason the boot order has been changed so that the network boot is being tried first. Strange things can happen to BIOS settings, often a sign that the backup battery for the memory where the settings are stored is getting weak.

If you have access to a Windows XP operating system CD, you can set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive and try using the Recovery Console feature. Information about this can be found at Microsoft's site.

Good luck getting your laptop back up and running quickly. Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi Im having a problem booting, it appears on my screen PXE-E61: Media Test failure, check cable PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent. Operating System not found. How can i fix this one without a...


it's trying to boot up from the network instead of from your harddrive. It could mean that it's unable to find your harddrive. One thing to check is the BIOS settings for the boot option - make sure the harddrive boots BEFORE it tries to boot from network.
Once you turn on your laptop it will tell you what to press to get in to the bios to change these options (could be either F1, F2, F10, DEL or maybe even something else) Once in the BIOS look for BOOT OPTIONS

When i boot up its telling me no operating system. Is there a recovery file i can download to fix the problem.thanks


Hi,

You need to access the bios to see if the hard drive has been recognized by the laptop.

Press either F1 or F2 to access the bios.

If the hard drive is not listed on the general page then this is the reason that it says no operating system found.

If it is there then chances are you have had a Win32 virus on the computer which has wiped the boot files.

This means that you willhave to use your recovery disk to recover the operating system.


Regards.
