When I power up the laptop, I get the following error;
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. The notebook keeps on rebooting with the same error.
I have reseated the hard drive. But I do not see a hard drive in the bios. It says :none. So it does not matter if I change the boot sequence as there is no hard drive to select. Is the hard drive toast?
