Hi, error 0200 it's just a generic code which the people from Acer dont even know. It's defenitely has something to do with the hard drive. I suggest you remove it (it's easy) and connect it to another computer and backup your data. That code could mean a "deleted partition" or Master Boot Record failure (software related) or something inside your hard drive (hardware related) so first do a backup like it told you and then try reinstalling the OS. If you still have the problem download some software on the internet such as mhdd which can test the hard drive to make sure but please backup as soon as you can. Dont try to use "chkdsk" or any tools BEFORE you backup because they stress the hard drive and can make things really difficult later to backup. They might even damage the hard drive. I hope this helps.

No OS means your hard disk have no program of either WinXP or Win7!
Go to your bios again and check the hardisk and memory!
Set the boot sequence and save upon exit!

TANGA!

Keep getting the following message when I turn on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop: PXE-E61: Media test faulire, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM Operating System not found


PXE bootup means the computer does not boot up from an operating system installed on a hard disk drive. PXE bootup uses a server on a network to boot up the computer.

It will not start without being connected the network that it was programmed to run on

Operating system not found, disk corrupt, strange clicking noise.


Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Try replacing the hard drive and restoring the operating system.

Acer aspire 5050 hard drive problems


If your computer has been working and when you start it you get the message that there is no hard drive (no boot device), then your hard drive has gone bad.
If you have gone into the bios and don't see either a hard drive or a CD or DVD, then most probably you are looking at a motherboard problem. It is not very common for the hard drive and CD/DVD to go bad at once.

Error 0200 faeluer fixed disk 0


Sounds like the hard drive has crashed. You can try pressing F8 repeatedly as soon as you start the boot process and see if that gets you to the windows repair option. From there you can try to do a repair or restore to factory settings. Otherwise buy a new hard drive and restore with your recovery cd.

Operating system not found


This means it cannot find the Windows OS files because either:-
The hard disk has failed or it needs reseating.
or the hard disk controller has failed.
or the Windows files have been deleted or corrupted (maybe by virus)

Try reseating the hard drive.
If the hard disk is faulty, you need a new one.
Try using your recovery CD disk.
Try re-installing Windows

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot up


ooh...no operating system. not good. ok..can you boot from CD? if that works, and it asks you to reformat the hard drive, STOP. Take the hard drive out, and then GENTLY reinstall. Maybe that will work. HD's can fail on laptops, just by a series of vibrations or shocks to the case.

got backup for your Acer?
