Hello,

I had the Error 0200 problem. First the existing hard drive started to play up, so I replaced it with a new 250GB drive. I started getting the 0200 issue after installing the new drive. I wasn't sure what the problem was, I started to wonder if the old drive had been fine. I took out the drive, and opened up the rest of the covering on the laptop to clean it. I found some fluff around the fan, so cleaned this away. Still the problem existed. I was about to give up thinking it was a motherboard problem, when I came across an article where someone mentioned that taking the hard drive out of it cover fixed the problem. Rather than take the drive out of the casing, I loosened the 4 screws holding the hard drive. I put everything back together, powered it up, and it has now been running for 14 hours continuously without any problems.
Solution, If you have replaced the hard drive, don't tighten the screws holding it in the casing too tight.

Take care.

Yes, I would say the bios or board has a problem with it in the computer if the two new hard drives don't work.

    If the disk isn't recognized, that's a problem that requires reformatting and installing a fresh operating system on the disk's boot sector and main memory.

Hi the laptop did not recognize the hard drive you should make sure the hard drive is connected properly if you still get the same problem this mean the hard drive controller is bad.

When your new hard drive is installed does the Bios see it?
If not then you have an issue with the hard drive. Quite often this issue can be resolved by simply removing the IDE cable blowing out any dusk and reattaching it.
If that doesn't work try disabling the LAN boot option. You can also try changing the HD from ACHI to EDI, changing the Boot order and/or simply resetting the bios.
Try these and if you have no go for launch repost what you did and I'll try and help from there.
Hope this helps.

Error 0200 fixed failure disk acer aspire 5100 start


Hard drive has bad sectors and or has crashed...usually.

I'd recommend removing the hard drive and hooking it up to another machine via usb, especially if you have any important files that need to be saved.

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.

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.

Acer Aspire 5100 Problem


its a fault caused by memory but not because of memory.
Either check ur hard drive with a utility(chkdsk)
or remove hd and clean pins and connection(small shaving brush is ideal for this) replace hd.
It could be bad sectors on drive and if not solved sooner than later ur hd can become damaged beyond repair.
if you have a xp disk,boot up with disk and select "r" for repair then once in dos platform type in " chkdsk" this is the easiest way there are other ways but can cause problems.
