HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Error: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012s.gif \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012s.gif
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012This document pertains to HP or Compaq desktop computers with Windows XP. \015\012\015\012The following error message appears:\015\012PXE-E61: Media Test Failure \015\012This error is probably occurring because the main bootable hard drive is no longer "connected" to the computer and the next usable bootable device in the boot path is the network card. Use the following steps to resolve the error:\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012NOTE: \015\012If the computer was recently moved or bumped, make sure the hard drive cables are firmly attached to the motherboard and the hard drive before using the steps in this document.\015\012\015\012Step 1: Remove all removable storage devices\015\012\015\012Remove connected devices, remove power, and restart the computer:\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Disconnect any, personal media drives, pocket media drives, USB or 1394 (Firewire) devices that are attached to the computer, especially USB thumb drives.\015\012
  2. \015\012Remove any CD and DVD discs from their drives.\015\012
  3. \015\012If the computer has a floppy disk drive, remove any floppy disks from the drive.\015\012
  4. \015\012Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the computer. \015\012
  5. \015\012Disconnect the power cable to the computer.\015\012
  6. \015\012With the power cable disconnected, press the power button again for five seconds. This may reset the firmware for the hard drive to its defaults .\015\012
  7. \015\012Plug in the power cable only and turn on the computer. \015\012
  8. \015\012If the error persists, go to the next step.\015\012If the computer starts without the error, one of the removable storage volumes may be preventing the computer from starting or the hard drive was not reponding. Do not leave the removable device in the computer when shutting the computer off. You are done.
\015\012\015\012Step 2: Make sure a network device is not selected as the first boot device in BIOS\015\012The computer may be attempting to boot from the network device.\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Turn on the computer by pressing the power button on the PC and press the F1 key repeatedly when the first screen opens. \015\012
  2. \015\012Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT screen (from the menu at the top of the screen). \015\012
  3. \015\012Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT Device Priority (or similar).\015\012
  4. \015\012Press Enter . \015\012
  5. \015\012Read the instructions on the page to move any reference to a netwrok device to the bottom of the list. You should also move the optical drive (ODD) to the top of the list. \015\012
  6. \015\012Once the selections have been made, press F10 to Save settings and exit.
\015\012\015\012Step 3: Test the Hard Drive\015\012\015\012Test the hard drive using the SMART hard drive test:\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the computer. \015\012
  2. \015\012Press the F1 key repeatedly after the computer is turned on. A BIOS setup utility should appear. \015\012
  3. \015\012After the BIOS Setup Utility is displayed, use the Down Arrow key to select the hard disk drive name and press Enter . \015\012
  4. \015\012Select SMART Extended Self-Test , press Enter , and wait for the test to complete. \015\012
  5. \015\012If the test fails, the hard drive should be replaced.\015\012If the test passes, go to the next step to update the BIOS.
\015\012\015\012Step 4: Update the BIOS\015\012Download and install the latest BIOS for your computer . If, after updating the BIOS and restarting the computer, the error goes away, you are done. If the error persists or a BIOS update is unavailable, go to the next step to recover the computer.\015\012\015\012Step 5: Recover the operating system\015\012\015\012To reinstall the Windows XP operating system, perform a system recovery (or reinstall Windows if the computer was upgraded to XP). You may need to start the computer from a set of recovery discs (or from a Windows Installation disc if Windows was upgraded to XP). For more information about how to recover the computer, refer to the HP support article Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP .\015\012\015\012Step 6: Repair the computer\015\012\015\012If the preceding steps do not resolve the error, the hard drive or BIOS may have failed and the computer should be serviced. if this service info does not work contact me.
