Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M55-S329 Notebook ?

Just replaced the HDD in my Toshiba Satellite M55-S329 from a 100GB to a 320GB after the old HDD failed. Now after replacing the HDD, it does recognize the hDD but I get the error message "pxe-e61 media test failure check cable". I have tried options like changing the BIOS but It still will not work or for that matter run the recovery disc..just the error message everytime. Is it possible that the HDD is too large in GB's to make work properly?? If not, what could possible be the problem?? Help?


Answers :

This toshiba only can get maximum 160 GB on HDD that's why it didnot recognize the HDD that you bougth
You have to change to boot order in the bios settings, it is currently trying to boot from a network drive, it needs to be set to the HDD you just installed.
