First, turn on your PC and repeatedly hit SHIFT+F8 right before the Windows 8 logo is seen on screen.

Then make your way to the “Advanced options” and try both the “System Restore” and “Automatic Repair” settings.

The message you are getting implies that it is trying to load the OS from the network (internet) possibly caused by the virus.

Try going into the BIOS and look for any entries that refer to PXE or look at the boot sequence and remove any entries for "other devices".

Note the settings before you change them.

PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE check cable then pxe-m0f: exiting pxe rom

means that the laptop cannot see your hard drive
