I recently purchased a computer from a i buypower. As I plugged it in and pushed the start button, an error came up saying PXE-E61: Media test failure, Check cable. I've looked and tried different solutions that were suggested online such as changing BIOS booting sequence and re-plugging in the cables that led from my hard drive to the motherboard. After re-arranging the Hard drive wire to different motherboard slots, a new error came up saying "reboot and select proper boot device". I'm wondering if this problem is caused by a defected hard drive? Here is a little background info on the computer.
Processor(Intel® Core™ i5 760 Processor (4x 2.80GHz/8MB L3 Cache)
Motherboard(ASUS P7P55D-E LX -- Intel P55 Chipset w/ 8-ch HD Audio, Dual-Channel DDR3, Gb LAN, 1x PCI-E 2.0 x16)
Power Supply(600 Watt -- Standard)
Primary Hard Drive(1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 64M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive)
Also, this computer was pre-built so windows7 was supposedly already installed on the HD.
