I Broke my computer

Hello Guys

Last night I nocked over my computer's tower while it was on, It froze and the graphics messed up. So I turned it off and restarted it.
So now when i turn it on it makes a click and a buzzing noise and the logo appears, and then it comes up with this message.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM.

ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.

Sorry if i posted this in the wrong section.

Thanks guys

  1. Can anyone help me? please...
  2. Than, connect everything back and start.

    If it wont start right again, clear the CMOS.
  3. OK, I would remove the GPU, HDD's, RAM, SSD and all the power cables...
  4. Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
    And when the battery is out, press the power button to discharge all the electricity from the system.

  6. Sounds like Your Hard Drive died in the fall.
  7. Ok Well ive already tried removing everything and reconnecting everything and that didn't work... ill try clearing the cmos then and see if that does anything.

    I agree. That's one of the most impact-vulnerable parts (as long as it's a mechanical hard drive), and the error message fits. Damage to other components would be more likely to result in eg. failure to POST.
  10. Check the power and data cables going to your HDD. Plug them back in, and see if it will boot. If it doesn't, likely your HDD has broken in the fall. That would also explain the tick and buzzing noise.

    If you want to check whether its the HDD or something else, see if you can boot off your windows install disk or linux on a USB or something. If the machine can boot into those, the computer should be able to boot into Windows. So its the HDD at fault.
  11. Well guys, I don't want to mess it up any more (im not sure if i can mess it up more tbh...) But its still under warranty so if i give to them they should just repair it and replace the hard drive right?

    Also if i do take it back, will i need to install windows 7 again?

    Yes, they will replace the HDD, if that's the problem.

    Wasn't the windows pre-installed?
  13. It was already installed but i don't know what i have to do when i get a new hard drive :/ Im not very good at this kind of stuff but thanks to you guys i have a idea of what to do.
  14. Don't they want u to send the PC back to them to fixed that?

    Where did u get the PC?
