I'm almost positive that you have a bad hard drive. PXE means Pre-Boot Execution Environment. You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn't see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device - the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that's why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

Good Luck

No. Not just any drive can be installed in your laptop. Each laptop can only accept a limited number of drives. I think the drive replacement is best left to a computer repair shop.

Good Luck
