    Hi guys, I have a problem about booting my laptop. Every time I start my computer, this message was displayed on my screen:
    "Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v10.0.9
    Copyright (c) 2000-2006 Broadcom Corporation
    Copyright (C) 1996-2000 Intel Corporation
    All Right Reserved.
    PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
    PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.

    Reboot and Select proper Boot device
    or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key_"


    Can anybody help me out in this situation and give me solution? I tried rebooting my computer but it doesn't work, I'm not a computer geek.

    I have the same problem. It's a bad hard drive.

    The more common issues are
    • That you may have a cd/dvd or usb drive in the computer and you have one of those at a higher boot priority than your HDD.
    • Failed HDD (Access your BIOS/UEFI and see if a HDD is detected) Some BIOS will also have a DFT (Drive fitness test) to check for HDD failures
