Under boot option check whether the hard disk is on first booting device!

as you say,

 

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

 

If it is desktop then check for cables, ie) SATA or IDE

 

change it and check whether it is booting

Hi Simon

What dash is saying I think is to physically check the cable from the motherboard to the hard drive. See if it has come loose. Did anything happen to the desktop before you had this error?

Good to go!  :thumbsup:

 

You change sata port(in motherboard) or only sata cable ?

 

Did your DVD is viewed on Disk management?

 

Edit: Thanks for lee1976uk for explaining!

No friend I didn't change anything
I just pressed the cable a little.
Maybe it was in loose connect

And answer to your question is NO
The drive is not shown in disk management

Booting speed is four times slower than normal

And I'll give the information of your other two questions later
Cuz I'm stuck with my examination so can't access the computer for two days
And I'm so sorry for that
