My mother had ordered a new DVD Burner while I was on vacation with friends. My kid brother anxious to get it ripped the box open and the computer open and started ripping things a part cords and etc.
I used the manual to put it back together as best I can but now I get the "PXE-E61" error. I got that fixed but now all I get is "BOOT FAILURE: SYSTEM HALTED" How can I fix this?

One would suggest that the hard disk drive is unplugged. Try unplugging the DVD burner. and making sure the cables from the back of the hard disk drive to the mother board are firmly attached.

Also ensure that on the grey ribbon cable that the red line on one side of it (referred to as pin 1) is pointing to the power plug on the back of the hard disk try this and see if it boots up.

if it does then try plugging the dvd drive back in.

It might be worthwhile actually unplugging everything and having just the mobo, cpu, graphics and hard drive plugged in. With that basic configuration you can see if there is an issue with the hard drive. If it works with the hard drive, slowly start adding items back into the mix until it comes to a time where something isnt connected or it stops booting.
