 PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable (How to r Post a Reply  
From: Junus on 01/02/2008
I have a Compaq R3000 laptop with Phoenix BIOS.

I too get the same error message:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable.

Unfortunately my laptop is a used one and the worst thing is that the BIOS is protected by a password, set by the previous owner. So now I can not enter into the CMOS setting and change it to default one. I have tried to enter the resetting password like: Phoenix, PHOENIX, etc into the password prompt but all is not working. Could someone please help me on how to reset this password and how to get rid of this PXE-E61 error message? Thanks beforehand for the help.

TRy removing the "jumper" from the password prongs on your motherboard. This will clear the password.

Open your laptop cover then remove CMOS battery for 5 minutes then insert back that battery again it goes BIOS reconfiguration mode.
