    I did as recommended. checked the connection to the motherboard, took the haddrive out and put it back again. It came along for one time, but then never again. Again it says the same error. What can I do?

    I also downloaded the ultimate boot CD as recommended. I have a Sony DVD/CD unit connected with a PC Card ACR-A01. But the computer will not boot up. I have changed in the BIOS to boot from the CD-ROM, but does not help. It is not reacting.

    Could the HD be damaged or is it the computer it self that is the trouble?

    Who is selling Harddrives for the EvoN200? Or if the computer it self is bad, where can I buy a new one? As I have no back up of the HD I need to find a way to restor the information on it.

    I am greatful for a tip.

The BIOS, which handles the initial start up of your computer, cannot find your hard drive and thus cannot boot your operating system (ie, Windows). Open up your computer and confirm the power cable is firmly connected to the hard drive and that the cable that connects the hard drive to the motherboard is firmly secure. If both of these check out, then try downloading this bootable CD on another computer. This CD, among other things, has a few hard drive utilities that will help further diagnose the problem. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ Finally, if the utilities on this CD are unable to see the hard drive itself, then is may need to be replaced. Try testing with another hard drive or another cable to connect it to the motherboard.

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Error for Intel® Desktop Boards Documentation
Content TypeTroubleshooting
Article ID000005740
Last Reviewed11/01/2017 What are you seeing?
The following errors display when your Intel® Desktop Board starts:
  • PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable.
  • PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Why are you seeing it?
PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) is a boot environment that allows the Intel Desktop Board to boot up using a network interface, instead of booting from an installed hard drive. You can enable or disable PXE boot in the BIOS.
If PXE Boot is enabled in BIOS, the PXE-E61 and PXE-M0F errors can happen when both of these are true:
  • A bootable hard drive is not detected.
  • A network cable is not connected to the Intel Desktop Board.
How to fix it
If a drive is installed Check that the drive is detected in BIOS:
  1. Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
  2. Go to the Boot menu.
  3. Check the Boot Drive Order.
  4. Press F10 to exit BIOS Setup.
If Boot Drive Order shows No Boot Drive:
  • Check that the drive is properly installed in the computer.
  • Try installing a different known good drive.
If PXE Boot is enabled in BIOS To check the BIOS option:
  1. Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
  2. Go to the Boot menu and check for Boot to Network.
  3. Press F10 to exit BIOS Setup.
If you do not plan to boot to a network, disable this option.

If you do want to boot to a network, check that the network cable connection is working properly.

HI there,
The "Error" texts saying:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Are completely normal. This simply states that there is no external cables plugged into the specialty inputs on your toshiba laptop.

The "operating system not found" is stating that your existing hard drive is either A) dead or B) been erased.

Try to re-install your operating system, if it finds no hard drive, you'll need a new one!

Modern TVs are basically a computer. In case you are talking about your computer, this is very old as it is copyright 1997. So, is this failure of a hard-drive of a computer, or failure of the high voltage circuit on a TV?

EvoN200 still not working, see comment

Im new to this site, so sorry if this has been mentioned before, but the screen quotes you receive seem to indicate that it is trying to boot from a networking server, as if your laptop is a workstation with no operating system. If you are able in the bios may be a menu something similair to boot from LAN, this should be dissabled. Did you have an operating system already on or is there need for a system repair/re-install.
