My daughter spilt a bit of her drink and ran down a hole on her laptop and stopped working. It kept saying Nvidia boot agent 249.0542, pxe-e61 media test failure, check cable and pxe-mof exiting nvidia boot agent.
Now I tried the hard drive from my other daughter’s laptop and it worked fine so I went out and bought a new hard drive. I then put it all back together and turned on so to reload the o.s. It started to load when it then came up with an error and said to disconnect the new hardware and try again.
After installing the new drive you say you ". . .turned on so to reload the o.s. It started to load. . ." What started to load? If it was a brand new drive there was nothing on the drive to load. So do you mean it booted from the Vista disk and started to install?
