Toshiba R940 gives blue screen or PXE-E61 Media Test Failure

I bought a Toshiba Tecra R940 last summer used online. Yesterday the computer started making a high-ish pitches buzzing noise in the middle of the usage. I continued using my laptop as normal, but later tried to restart the laptop to get rid of the buzzing. I haven't been able to login since. Sometimes my computer will open up to a screen to try to resolve the problem or open windows normally. If I do the first it works for about an hour and then says it can't automatically fix the problem. If I do the second it opens a blue screen. Most of the time I turn on my laptop it opens up "Intel(R) Boot Agent GE v1.3.81" and then says:
"PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent
Insert system disk in drive
Press any key when ready . . . . "
When I press any key it gives the same error message. I've had this computer a little over a year now and have experienced no problems like this. Please help!!

Based on what you heard and the messages that you're seeing, it sounds like the hard drive in your Toshiba Tecra R940 series laptop has died.
If that's the case, it'll need to be replaced and then the Windows operating system installed in it.

What's the complete model number of yours?
(A dash and additional characters after R940 comprises the complete model number)
