Ok, much like the other PXE-E61 post, with some significant differences:
I have a Gateway laptop. It was running fine, then suddenly made a "VOOM VOOM" sound over and over again. The screen was frozen. I rebooted, and
PXE-E61 Media Test Failure
PXE-M0F Exiting Intel Boot Agent
Operating System Not Found
I went through the replies, and checked all my connections. I reseated the hard drive, reset BIOS to defaults, and still nothing.
One thing I noticed, though. After a minute or less, the BIOS menu will freeze and the cursor will not move. I have to restart and then re-enter the BIOS to make any other changes.
I saw that:
IDE 0 MASTER: NONE
IDE 0 SLAVE: NONE
IDE 1 Master: NONE
How can I fix this? Can the HDD be tested? I don't have another laptop to use to test it. It is VERY important that I recover my data for work.
