Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
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.

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.
