Sounds like hard disk faliure, suggest getting a new hard disk or perhaps attempt a system reinstall. Its not the fan but the hard disk.Geoff

This is a easy fix all you need is a windows xp installation disk.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of the cd option.if you need help with the xp cd installation i can write up a guide for you.also is the first harddrive new or came with the comp.if it is a new harddrive it might not have a operating system on it.email me if you have anymore qeustions or you want the guide.i can even make a video for you but it probably won't be good quality.

Boot up problem


NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE.Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is brokenBurn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distributionliek Slax, google it.Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.

It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot. Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.

Toshiba satellite 1115-S103 I can't boot up


It seems like your computer is booting from the network. This means that it is not detecting the Hard Drive. This error shows up when the hard drive is already busted or is not working anymore. You'll need to call toshiba for repairs or just get a brand new hard drive and install it yourself. It's pretty simple.

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. if this does not work then reboot and go to the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files, this confirm the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to be replaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device drivers and your programs etc to get a working laptop again.

I replaced the 30 G toshiba HDD that was not functioning on my LE1600 Motion tablet with a 60 G toshiba HDD and tried to install windows xp from an external CDD. It formated the drive and installed the operating system, but on boot up I get the message PXE-E61 ...check cable...exit...operating system not found.


Tried the same thing and got the same result using the motion computing DVD/CD external reader/burner. Has anyone found an answer to this problem of trying to switch to a larger hard drive on the 1600 with format/installing? The new hard drive was not able to read the recovery disk with OS on it.Thanks.
