W530 Boot Problem_PXE-E61:media test failure

Dear friends,


My W530-2241 (bought 4 YEARS AGO) won't boot this morning. I've been working heavily on some graphic and modeling for days and didn't shut down for days. After this sut down, I can't boot it. It showed this:

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.

I searched through the forum and set my HDD as first priority already (under startup-Boot, and my system is installed in Plextor M6M 256GB msata). I searched for PXE-boot but didn't find it in BOIS yet, but I tried disabling "Wake On Lan" and "Erthernet LAN Option ROM" (under Config-Network) as well. This didn't work, the error page is gone, but still can't boot. 

It always stuck in the "boot meau" page, I click enter on my HHD but didn't work. Does anyone have some idea? really desprite to solve this.



Btw, here is some info

That could mean the drive is not seated fully in the W530, although I'd suspect a 2010 error and not the media test error message.  Have you tried carefully opening up the computer, removing the mSATA SSD, reinstalling it, and then putting the system back together, plugging the battery back in and powering it up?  If so, did it then detect the drive?  Also, do you have another computer (or mSATA adapter) you can install the drive in for testing purposes?
