I'm trying to help my friend with his computer but he got this Emachines computer and it keeps on saying "media test failed" "check cable" I think I see where something should probably be powering the media but it looks like a T shape from tetris and the power cables we have in it don't look close to it at all its drivin me up the wall :confused: please any info would be appreciated.

Welcome to TSG....

I would shut-down the computer and remove the enclosure side or cover from it and make sure the connectors for all of the drives are in the correct position and plugged in securely and also that the settings in BIOS are set correctly and also check the date and time to see if they are correct...
