Hi,

The error indicates that the hard disk requires replacement. To my understanding, a 40GB Hard Drive was originally installed which you can replace with a larger capacity. Any brand/model actually would do as long the physical dimensions and fittings/connectors are identical.

Replacing the hard drive of course would mean that you have to reinstall your OS and all of your applications. This would be easy if the laptop originally came with recovery CDs. Should they not be available, any OEM installer of your original OS would serve the purpose. Drivers and appropriate software/utilities are downloadable here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Error 0200 failure fixed disk 0 ibm thinkpad


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My T30 keeps giving me an Error 0200: Failure fixed disk 0 message. I don't know much about computers. What does this mean?


That means that if you get back into your computer, back all your stuff up as the hard drive is or has failed!
Don't leave it back it up now!!

Problem with ibm thinkpad r40


The IBM beep code error 1 long 2 short beeps means there is a video card fault. Reseat your RAM because the video card uses some of the RAM. If it doesn't work then the video chip on the motherboard is faulty, the only way to fix is to replace the motherboard - this may not be a cost effective solution.
Connecting an external monitor to the laptop won't work because the video card also sends data to the video port.

Think pad r40/2681(driver prob.i.e. usb/wireless/sound etc.)


Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
You need to use a computer that has Internet access to download and transfer the files to your computer.

0200: Failure Fixed Disk 0 IBM T-41


There's a possiblility that you can still recover your files. Try to plug your hard drive to a different PC and check if it detects it. Otherwise, there's no hope but to buy a new hard drive.

Cmos password for ibm r40


You will have to remember it. IBM puts a security chip on the motherboard, the bios password is burned into this, and there is no way around it. There are a few places that will replace the chip, but they are very expensive. The only other way is to replace the motherboard. I've found that replacing the motherboard is cheaper than having the chip replaced, so, if possible, remember the password.
