SOURCE: Media Test Failure, Check Cable.....

This is an Invalid / Non System Disk error.In your Bios settings change the "First boot device" option to your hard disk.If you have only one hard disk set it to "HDD 0"
Other causes of the problem are:

  1. Floppy or CD that is not bootable is currently in the computer.
  2. Hard disk's power or data cable is not connected properly(loose contact)

SOURCE: PXE-E61 media test failure check cable

Your unit is telling you that there is a cable problem (between HDD & MoBo) try a new one or if you have another drive with same cable swop over.

SOURCE: Getting a media test failure on initial boot up

probably hard drive failure.
try changing the boot order in bios.
if that doesnt work try reinstalling windows.
If windows doesn't reinstall then your hard drive is bad.

SOURCE: When I turn the computer on, I get the following

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

It can't locate a working boot disc. Most likely lost communications with hard drive. Look in BIOS again to see it recognizes the drive. If not try re-seating / reconnecting drive.

Toshiba nb300 windows starter won't boot. PXE-E61 media test failure. check cable.


If your computer is working fine, then disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, that's why the media test failure is displayed. It's usually used to load an OS image from network.


For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.
If there is a problem (won't boot) then it lost communications to hard drive, and you need to check BIOS for hard drive.

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!

PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).

1.Go to Bios Settings
2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option.

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.
