Either your hard drive is damaged or the interface is , the only way of determing which it is, is to install a new hard drive that you know is working in the machine and see if it detects it

If the hard drive has completely failed the motherboard will not detect it, remove hardware and re-seat it back in position, sometimes this is enough to restart the hard drive, if this fails the hard drive should be tested before replacing it.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Hi, im having problem with my hard drive, dell inspiron 1525. when i boot my laptop i got this message " to resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive". I badly need your help. thank you


The laptop is having difficulty connecting the hard drive. The hard drive may be faulty, but you don't know until you re-seat the hard drive.
Remove the hard drive from the laptop and insert it back, do this a few times to ensure the hard drive makes proper connection to the laptop's motherboard and then boot up the laptop.
If you are still getting this error message then you probably have a faulty hard disk, then this need to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk with the Dell laptop's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.
Please let me know how things turn out.

Opened laptop to find ' internal hard drive not found ' i did a reseat on hard drive , still not working. ran f5 test and tests all ok bar hard drive not found. laptop was working 10 mins before error came...


Please make sure if you open the back part of the laptop check the Harddrive if it is firmly connected. bacause it is possible that the reason why the laptop doesn't detect it is because of the physical connection.

I was wiping the hard drive when the laptop


Please come back to us with the exact error if you get any.

However, how you are performing recovery. Using recovery manager or recovery discs?

If you are using recovery manager, please perform hard drive self test and check with the result.

Hard drive self test steps:

1. Turn Off the notebook.
2. Turn ON the notebook and keep tapping F10 key
3. Once you are in BIOS, navigate to tools/diagnostics tab with the help of left and right arrow key.
4. You will find Primary HDD self test or HDD self test.
5. With the help of up and down arrow key select the respective test and hit enter.
6. Short test will take only 4-5 minutes. However, long test may take 40-60 minutes.


If the hard drive is fine, try to perform recovery using recovery discs....

If still the problem exists try with different discs.

If the hard drive fails replace the hard drive.

Hope this will work for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

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.

Seagate 250GB FreeAgent USB 2.0 Ext Hard Drive with laptop


Whether your computer is a laptop or desktop does not inherently decide if the drive will work or not. If it can't see the connection, there must be another problem with the drive. I would suggest reporting what you have done to try and make it work and anything you notice out of the ordinary (how lights on the drive are acting, noises the drive is making, alerts you see when you plug it into your laptop, etc). That will allow us to better help you find a solution to the problem.
