    PXE-E61 Media Test Failure for this issue, I suggest that you try to restore your computer back to factory settings. Acer has an applicatio to launch the restoration process using ALT + F10 keys. If this does not resolve your problem, it is possible that your computer has a motherboard problem and will need to repaired. Contact acer to request for repair of your notebook at www.acerpanam.com. If you no longer have a warranty, you can still send it to acer for out of warranty repair.

    PXE-E61 Media Test Failure for this issue, try this step:

    - Power the notebook on, and immediately begin tapping F2. This will go into the notebook BIOS.

    - In the BIOS use the arrow keys to select the Boot Menu.

    - In the Boot Menu will be "Boot Priority Order" and below that will be a list of devices.

    The first in the list should be "IDE 0".

    If "IDE 0" is not the first, use the arrow keys to highlight "IDE 0"

    - Use the designated keys to move "IDE 0" to the top.

    - Press the F10 key and press the enter key to save and reboot the computer
