GETTING ON MY LAPTP: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

\015 Getting this msg after starting my laptop: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable\015

Answers :

This error message can be caused by a faulty connection to the hard drive or a faulty hard drive or a faulty disk controller.
\015\012Go into the BIOS configuration to see if it has detected the hard drive, if it is not detected that is why the laptop won't bootup.
To confirm or check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port (you may need assistance from a computer savy friend).
If this computer cannot see this as an external drive then it is faulty. If the computer can see this drive as an external drive and you can open the folders and files on the hard disk then the hard drive is OK and the fault is probably a faulty disk controller on the laptop. A faulty disk controller is part of the motherboard and the only fix is a replacement motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution and it may be better to put your money towards a new laptop.
I have a HP 6735s and ran the HP Disk Sanitizer.
Now the laptop wont turn on, it says the error message above and also non system disk error, replace and strike any key when ready.
any ideas anyone?
