Acer 5100 help me

\015 Aspire 5100 pxe -e61:media test failure, check cablehow i do i fix this problem?\015

Answers :

OK this is the only way I can get my P.O.S Acer 5100 to work and it does NOT always work...
\015\012
\015\012First off, I downloaded an updated Bios (3.10) it was from the Acer U.K. website and the program to flash it..(caution it may fry your computer) but i was ready to gut this thing and send it back to Acer with a thin layer of horse S*&T on top..there customer service in non existant for this modle....
\015\012
\015\012after flashing the Bios I did a full system recovery from the disks I made when it was new...restarted it and it WORKED....
\015\012
\015\012well it worked for about 2 weeks then the "media cable error" message came up again...if you get the Acer screen hit F2 and you will see your $800 laptop is not detecting the hard drive or dvd rom...hit control alt delete to restart and TAP the right side of the laptop above the hard drive HARD as it boots...if you get really lucky it will work until the next time you move it...seems to be a bad connection near the hard drive...ALSO..my P.O.S has the built in webcam..it will work until i move the cam, it seems to short out the laptop, i get the blue screen of death and it will restart...
\015\012if you do get your running I sugest coping all your files, pictures and anything else you value from the hard drive, formate it and SELL IT ON E BAY AS-IS...most bring around $200 for parts and go buy a Dell...
\015\012
\015\012Acer is total ****, mine has been back to Texas for repair 4 times and is not out of warentee..they said I should of bought the extended warrentee, I asked why you people have had it more then I have...you should replace it for free...no responce from Acer...
\015\012
\015\012OH and the left button on the palm rest fell into the laptop after 2 weeks and they refused to repace it for free, said it was user damage
\015\012
\015\012hope this helps you with your POS Acer media connection error
Hmmm..sounds like a bios issue...F2 when you start..and then check the drives to see that they are all present and enabled.
