Having problems with your IBM PC Laptops ?

From the first time I try to start my new lenovo 3000 g530 4446 3fg it tells me pxe-e61 media test failure check cable, pxe-mof: exiting broadcom pxe rom and I made the laptop boot from the hdd but it gave me the same error again


Answers :

The PXE-E61 error is caused by either a faulty disk controller or most likely a faulty hard disk. Because the Lenovo is new I suggest you return it to the supplier to get it fixed under warranty.
\015\012Do not try to fix it yourself because you can void your warranty.
