Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Notebook ?

I installed a new HDD and now I am getting a PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable. I've tried reseating the HDD but get the same result. I attempted to access BIOS setup to change boot order to CD-ROM (where I have Toshiba recovery disc mounted) but I can only access part of the BIOS setup screen (date and time only). No BIOS password has been set. Anybody have any ideas?

You have a loose connection somewhere [USB media or any other storage device]\015\0123. You might have non-bootable media that could be interfering with your boot process [remove all non-bootable media that could be in any drive or connected to you computer i.e Disketts, CDs, flash drives]\015\0124. You system is trying to boot from a network location using your network card, you might want to check and make sure that is not the case
Hi,
