Media test failure

\015 I'm replacing my Compaq Presario hard drive, and I put the recovery DVD into the DVD drive. I'm getting the following message: ''PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable.'' Does this mean I need to replace the DVD drive too?\015

Answers :

No. It means hat you should disconnect the DVD drive and reconnect it. It may have become loose while you were replacing the HDD.
