Hello,

Just follow these simple steps below and it should resolve the issue.

  1. When the computer is booting, go in the BIOS.
  2. Change the boot device priority so that your HDD becomes the first boot device.
  3. Disable network PXE boot if possible. If not possible, just put it as the last boot device.
  4. Press F10 to save settings and restart the computer.
  5. If problem is not solved at this stage, turn off the computer.
  6. Remove the lid and remove the HDD, clean the pins and reseat it.
  7. If issue persists, give a tap on the laptop where the HDD is located (I assure this works and has solved many problems) as there seems to be a 'strike zone' on some HDD.
Now turn on your computer and it should be running correctly.

Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I brought the computter about month ago.. and now its appears ::

This is a common problem but there may be more than one fix

The easiest is to go to your bios and set the boot device order.

It is quite conceivable that it is set to try and boot from network first

You should select HARD DRIVE or CD DRIVE as you first option and then reverse that order for your second boot device

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

Hi. I think the problem on this one is its either your Harddrive has already failed or your Optical Drive has a cd inside, so double check your Optical drive if there is a disc inside it. If not this issue is also with the operating system, you can try to restore your system by pressing the One Key recovery(OKR) button found beside the power button which has a logo of an arching arrow, but remember to plugin first the ac adapter on your laptop before pressing the One Key Recovery Button and also do not press the power button to turn on your computer because when you press the OKR button it will automatically turn on your computer and proceed with the recovery process. When it gives you some option you should choose One Key Recovery and then choose System Recovery, then factory default and from there it will guide you to the whole process of recovering your machine. If this doesnt fix the issue you could also try using the Recovery disc to restore your sytem t its original settings just like the OKR. Lastly you can contact the tech support dept. of Lenovo, they are open 24/7 and this the number to contact:
US/Canada: Available 24/7 1-877-4LENOVO (1-877-453-6686)
Australia: Available 24/7 1300-557-073
New Zealand: 9am-9pm Mon-Fri 0800-446-833. Hope this helps

Problem with acer laptop. My laptop stopped booting after restart. I just moved my laptop from bed to floor . while in power on the program just crash not responding, then came a blue screen and said...


Click the power button and watch the screen to see which key it says to press to get into the Bios or System Setup. Change the boot order or boot sequence. It looks like it is set to boot from a Network or LAN first. You want to boot from the hard drive 1st or the cd drive 1st and the hard drive 2nd. This will change it permanently. Then reboot.

There might also be an option to change it temporarily when you boot the system. Just watch the screen and see if it shows you which key to press to change the boot order or boot sequence. It is only effective for this one boot.

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. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is 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.

It is trying to boot from the network, basically from the internet cable that can be plugged in. If you enter the bios you can typically disable the PXE boot option so it won't show up again.

Hi my LT Aspire 5536G turned off itself when I was using it. Now when I start it the screen is black with this message - Base Code PXE-2.1 v1.0 PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable PXE-M0F:...


The message you are getting is the laptop telling you it cannot find a boot device. The Broadcom message is the last option in the boot sequence (network boot).

I'm not sure what OS you are using, so the following is loosely based on a standard recovery, PLEASE don't just award a 1 thumb if this does not solve the issue, rather don't leave feedback.

First of all: Boot and press F2 or F10 or del to access the Bios, see that the hard drive is actually seen in the bios, if it is NOT, please repost, this points to HDD failure

Secondly, if it is, in the Bios, set the 1st boot device to DVD Rom. Insert the Windows Disc and IF using XP, wait until it finds the old OS and do a recovery. IF using Vista or Windows 7, its more or less the same, run a repair and if you get the OS back up and running, download a comand line virus scanner such as DRWEB Cure it and run a thorough scan for viruses on the hard drive.

Before condemning the hard drive, try removing it and re-inserting it, see if the bios recognises it.
I'd also advise downloading a disc checking utility to make sure the hard drive is still workable

A "media test failure, check cable" means your hard disk failed. The bios can not locate the boot sector of the hard disk to begin loading the operating system.
"Operating system not found" means windows can't load because the Bios can not find the operating system (because the hard disk failed).

This is pretty much an unrecoverable error in terms of fast fixes. You can take the hard disk to a data recovery service if you need to retrieve important data or files.

Hi, When I turn on my Laptop - Acer Aspire 5536, the following writing appears; Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11 .4.1 Copyright (C) 2000-2008 Broadcom Corporation Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel...


usually, this message means that when your computer is booting it is trying get the operating system files from a network location (shared folder)

what you need to do is to make sure your BIOS is not set to boot from network.

1. when the computer starts, there is a message like "to enter BIOS press Esc" or any other key like F2 or F10
2. in the BIOs settings, make sure the order of the boot is: DVD/CD then hard disk. make sure there is no Network booting in the list

If you have a BOOT CD then try to boot and go to windows.
Or you can use windows setup CD but go for repair only.
For the future it is a good idea to INSTALL WINDOWS in a USB mini drive and boot the computer from USB. You have to go to BIOS and set USB default drive.
It is a good idea to clone your HD in a CD.

What is your computer brand?
Just turn it on and keep pressing esc or delete or F2 key (depending on the model. But yuo can try any of them. This will take you into the bios screen. In the bios check if hdd is detected. If not - replace HDD>if yes > reset bios to defaults and start recovery (using supplied RDVDs or Recovery partition.
You will find exact instructions in user manual.t
