SOURCE: My laptop keeps saying media test failure and such

I had that and one of my ram modules was finished. Take it apart as much as you can and check everything is firmly in place. you can get new ram but it may not be ram it could be anything loose cable failure is the clue. As laptopps get bounced a lot you could well be lucky. Remove battery and power and take your jewelry off I use disposable gloves so I dont cause any shorts. While you are in there give your fan a clean. good luck.

I cannot be sure, but I think that this problem has something to do with having "boot from network adapter" enabled in your BIOS. If this is not the problem, then it might be another malfunctioning device, in which case, you will want to go into BIOS and disable everything except for what you need to get through the restore process(Disable USB ports, network adapter, PCMCIA card slot, etc.)

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

Hi. I think the problem on this one is its either your Harddrive has already failed or your Optical Drive has a cd inside, so double check your Optical drive if there is a disc inside it. If not this issue is also with the operating system, you can try to restore your system by pressing the One Key recovery(OKR) button found beside the power button which has a logo of an arching arrow, but remember to plugin first the ac adapter on your laptop before pressing the One Key Recovery Button and also do not press the power button to turn on your computer because when you press the OKR button it will automatically turn on your computer and proceed with the recovery process. When it gives you some option you should choose One Key Recovery and then choose System Recovery, then factory default and from there it will guide you to the whole process of recovering your machine. If this doesnt fix the issue you could also try using the Recovery disc to restore your sytem t its original settings just like the OKR. Lastly you can contact the tech support dept. of Lenovo, they are open 24/7 and this the number to contact:
US/Canada: Available 24/7 1-877-4LENOVO (1-877-453-6686)
Australia: Available 24/7 1300-557-073
New Zealand: 9am-9pm Mon-Fri 0800-446-833. Hope this helps

It goes to a network boot rather than booting straight to the HDD. restart your computer and press f2 immediatley. you are now on the BIOS page. check if your hard drive is detected and if not call Lenovo to have it replaced/repaired. if it is detected, after the PXE error, your computer should boot up just fine.

Message saying media test failure, exiting pXE ROM and operating system not found. Cannot get anywhere thereafter. can get into F12 and F2 at startup,


Sounds like your hard drive died. If hard drive is dead you wont be able to get into anything but the bios. Hold down the CTRL key when computer starts and dont let go and try to force it into going into bios for you.

PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F


There are two things that could be a problem. The BIOS settings are corrupted, or the hard drive system has a problem. In order to fix the BIOS problem, at boot up you'd hit F2 (or whatever key is required to enter setup). Get some paper and pencil and go through the BIOS pages and mark down anything that is not a default setting. Find the location to reset the BIOS to default settings and perform this action. This will overwrite your BIOS settings and remove any corrupted data. Now, when you reboot, go back into the setup and set all of the settings to the choices you marked down before.

If this does not fix your problem, your hard drive control system has a problem. It could be as simple as a ribbon cable being loose or as bad as the controller section on the motherboard has gone out. Another possibility is the hard drive has given up and needs to be replaced.

Media test faiture, check cable error message ,


The error is related to your network interface card. In a lot of laptops this is integrated to the motherboard and can't be switched out at home. You will need to take the laptop in for service to have the card replaced.

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
