PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable und PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM

Hi,

 

Recently got this laptop off a friend and I have no idea of what this error is or how to fix it. I can't even get into the BIOS. Any help would be great, thanks.

Hi Chandler8815,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

This error implies that there are no bootable device it can proceed to load with. This would be like there is no harddrive or the software is not bootable.

 

You may want to check if the BIOS still detects the drive, perhaps to reseat it from the cable and the cable from the board to ensure that contacts are good. 

 

It is also possible that the drive is bad or the cable specially if the same harddrive is not detected on another computer. You can try a known good drive /replacement harddrive if the BIOS fails to detect it even after reseating it from its place.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards
