Dell Inspiron n5010 keep getting pxe media test failure
Posted on 2012-08-24
Not sure what the issue is but have a laptop that when booted says
Pxe media test failure
I have tried to change the boot sequence an boot from CDROM but no go
I have tried reseating the hdd an the CDROM
I checked the mobo for any type of loose wires or possible bad caps. I don't see a problem.
I ran a dell diagnostic and it passes on the harddrive cable check. But it says dst short test failed on harddrive. I assume the drive is dead but why would I not be able to boot a working boot disk?
