Have an Acer Aspire 5735. Unit will not boot and I get a black screen with copyright notices and the following
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

Operating System Not Found
Rebooted and took F2 set up option when appeared. Reset to Standard Default with same result.

In the set up utility looking at the information page it says none under both IDE0 model name and serial number. I don't get an option to boot in safe mode during the process it just goes to the messages I indicated earlier.

Stick with Old Rich,you may also want to try this,


This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting inCMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive.

Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. Set the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option. make sure to save and reboot the computer.

So I have done step 1 form old Rich and pulled and reseated the harddrive. It's a Western Digital Blue Scorpio model WE2500BEVT-222CTD. Which diagnostic program do you recommend?
