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.
