    Hello everyone


    i hope someone is able to help me out with this. I have a Dell 3521 and I changed the motherboard and when I started the computer, i got the
    PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE
    PXE-M0F : EXITING PXE ROM
    NO BOOT DEVICE FOUND. PRESS ANY KEY TO REBOOT.

    I press any key and the dell logo pops up and then it goes back to the same message. I bought a new hard drive and it tells me the same thing. I just bought the computer about 6 months ago and it has windows 8. I already tried installing the windows 8 cd but it doesnt let me boot it. Please help.

    I'm guessing you actually have a Dell Inspiron 15 (3521) 15.6" laptop.

    What's the "service tag" number and/or "express service code" number on it?

    That model laptop originally comes with Windows 7 32-bit/64-bit.

    Where did you buy it from?
