Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro A200-EZ2204X Notebook

1 Answer

RE: Toshiba A200

Hi there

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?
Thanks
Robert

Maybe its a hard disk problem or a software issue. Do you have a boot disk? Try this Download Hirens BootCD 15 2 HBCD Fan Discussion Platform , that's a good tool to format disks and other things.

Wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop


Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable (of the HARD DISK pls)

pls first check the hard disk seated in the bottom left side of ur notebook u have to take out the 7 or 8 screws first and then take take it out by pulling the connector gently and try to re seat or re fit the hard disk so connector can seat firmly in hard disk and then power up ur notebook if Error persists

then sorry to tell u my friend that ur Hard disk has CRASHED and not giving up files for OS loading kindly replace ur HARD DRIVE and restore ur OS thru backup disk u got

Pls take care of ur notebook from bumps and falls and hard impacts during operation and carrying bcoz the disk inside the HDD is very sensitive and gets damaged easily by impacts

pls rate me FIXYA for my diagnosis

Error Message: PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable


Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
