    Hi gazb79, and welcome to TSG.

    Did you mean, "Media test failure"?

    If so, restart the computer and get into the BIOS settings. Make sure the "Boot from network" is not enabled if the BIOS supports that mode.

    If boot from network is not enabled, I may have some bad news for you. Your computer's hard drive may have failed completely or is very close to failing.

    EDIT: Just saw huggie54's post. I forgot about boot order.
