My cousin's laptop says:

reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device press any key when ready

media test failure check cable

She homeschools her children and does not want to lose any files if at all possible.

Can anyone help?

That is the Brand name (Compaq, HP, Dell,..) and model?
PXE is a network feature. Was that in the BIOS instead of the hard drive?

You can do a Hard disk check at the Bios ....... that would be able to tell if hard disk has filed or not.
