1. Make certain the caqble connecting the CD drive and the motherboard is secure. 

power down the computer
remove the power cord
open the case
GROUND YOURSELF ON BARE METAL
trace the wide ribbon cable connecting the CD drive to the motherboard and make certain it is firmly seated at both ends
(while you have the case open and yourself grounded, grab your can of compressed air and blow out some dust bunnies, OK? :-))
close the case, plug in, power on. 

If that wasn't the issue,

2. Clean the restore CD by using a soft cloth and wiping from the inside (at the hole) stright to the outside edge. DO NOT wipe in a circular motion!

3. Purchase a CD/DVD drive cleaning kit from WallyWorld or some other discount house and attempt to use it to clean the drive. DO NOT use compressed air to clean the drive!

4. Report back. :-)

    Oops. Just re-readthe "Fixed Disk 0" portion of your error message. *sigh* Hard drive error. Check the cabling to the hard drive using a process like the one I outlined for the CD drive. If it's not a loose cable, you're likely looking at a hard drive replacement.

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.

It looks like you'll have to either return it or perform a default factory recovery. These instructions are from their site but proceed knowing that this will erase any data that is stored on the primary partition (meaning if you have anything on it, it's gone...). Esentially it resets it to a point as if you just picked it up in the store (which you did.. :( )


How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    If you have a recovery disk:

    How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
    With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    1. Ensure that the computer is completely shutdown, then turn on the computer.
    2. When the eMachines splash screen appears, tap the Alt and F10 keys simultaneously. A screen stating "Starting eMachines eRecovery" should appear.
    3. From the recovery options, choose Restore system from CD/DVD.
    4. Insert either the first Recovery or Backup disc that you created.
    5. From the on-screen options, choose a backup.
    6. Click OK and the installation will begin.
    7. Change the disc as necessary when prompted.


      If you do not have a recovery disk:

    8. Restart the computer.
    9. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
    10. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
    11. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

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!!

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.

Restoring


go into the Bios and set it to boot from disk, restart and it will walk u through, as long as it's xp or vista. Once it loads it will give you the option to repair, and at that point it will ask for the restore disks

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.

Your hard drive crashed. They're fairly easy to replace. Ebay has great deals on 40 and 60 gb hard drives.
