It says nothing about a missing operating system, and I've no idea if my external hard drive has a copy of it or something.I connected it as well to the USB port on the side of the laptop, and it made no difference. Are there any sources I can use that can be provided to help fix this problem? From: Silas on 06/12/2015 Hello everyone, My name is Silas and I have a Dell Inspiron M5040 laptop. I successfully replaced the hard drive, however this annoying error keeps coming up: Intel UND1, PXE-2.1 (build 083)Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation This product is covered by one of more of the following patents: x Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Series v1.24 (10/07/10)PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.I tried the tapping the hard drive method, with no luck.I was wondering if I should've purchased a copy of Windows 7, maybe that's what's missing?During the final boot up, I am getting following error message Intel Base-Code, PXE-2.1 (build 083)Copyright (C) 1997-2001, Intel Corporation PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0f: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.

From: Kdawg757 on 12/17/2013 So I'm reading all this fools on here that think spanking your hard-drive is a smart thing to do, like that would have any chance at succeeding. From: samy on 08/09/2012 HI I've got a compac presario r3000 and it says PXE-E61 media test failure check cable. My emial is [email protected] From: Craig on 05/25/2012 I also have this PXE-E61, error, as well as PXE-M0F.
Computer would still not boot from cdr but i found out it does boot from dvd so instead of xp , i installed win7 for fun. My old hard drive crapped its pants, so I got a brand new one. I have installed both old hard drives, and the new one again, and get this PXE-E61 error, which is not a characteristic of the other 2 hard drives failures.
I already set the hard drive as the first boot priority. I'm incredibly frustrated after working on fixing this laptop for almost a week now. Reboot and Select proper Boot deviceor Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.
I connected it as well to the USB port on the side of the laptop, and it made no difference. Are there any sources I can use that can be provided to help fix this problem? From: Ellen on 01/13/2015 tapping, hitting is not working for me. Also I see people talking about "changing BIOS settings? All I have is a blank black screen with the error message and no options.
Started the computer, same message and the hard drive isn't being read. From: Rachel on 03/10/2012 I now am getting the same message as everyone else, but I had just ran a program 'minitool drive wipe', as I am giving my computer to someone from work I really don't know very well. Since "C" is active partition on after the scan boot reports on 2 "FILE ALLOCATION TABLES" known as FAT and provides size, here is the record recordings of files on hard disc, after reading the 1st FAT, 2nd FAT contains "ROOT DIRECTORY" where 2 hidden system files are located and a "KEY FILE" called "COMMAND. PARTITIONING can in hard drive takes on other assigned letters "D" "E" "F" ETC. From: Calvin on 01/07/2012 I have been working on a Dell inspiron for about 3 weeks after replacing the second hard drive i notice the error PXE-E61 media test failure check cable. For the last year my computer has been dead to the world I was told my mortherboard was bad so finally I bought a new one and I was told my video card was bad so I finally but a new one. I've changed HDDs, configured and re-configured, changed jumper settings and spent countless hrs on the net trying to figure this out. What relief as I just payed to have the hard drive replaced.
