    I HAVE A IBM THINKPAD WITH OPERATING SYSTEM WIN XP. ONE MINUTE MY PICTURE SCREEN SAVER WAS SCROLLING THE NEXT I WAS GETTING A MESSAGE STATING:
    PXE- E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE
    PXE- MOF EXITING INTEL PXE ROM
    OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND

    WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND HOW CAN I FIX IT?

    It sounds like your BIOS settings changed somehow. ThinkPad usually does not have a BIOS that can be accessed outside Windows, but it looks like your machine is trying to boot from the network.

    Do you have any BIOS access? Try disconnecting the LAN.

    The Only Thing I Can Do Is Press F1 Or F12. Both F1 And F12 Gets Me To Bio Options. I Looked Through Both Options To See If I Could Start In Safe Mode But Couldn't Find It Anywhere. I Didnt Change Anything. How Do I Disconnect The Lan?

    Sounds like the hard drive is either moved out of the connector from the IDE cable or the hard drive has bitten the dust. I hope you had the data backed up from this hard drive if not then that more than likely is lost also.

    Go back to BIOS. Make sure, that the boot order reads: floppy, CD, HD
    Disable Boot from Network (wording is different on every machine, may say Integrated NIC, Network, PXE-xxxxxxx)
