I have an aspire 6930G laptop running Windows Vista. Today when I turned it on it got so far than came up with Error 0200 Failure Fixed Disk 0.

It allows me to press F2 to enter setup.

Haven't done anything.

Anyone got any suggestions how to get it running.

Thanks in advance for any help.

very likely a hard drive failure but possibly a poor or faulty connection to the hard drive, and/or faulty motherboard controller

what does f2 do? reinstall from partition,, if yes then worth a go before you go to lappy hospital

enter the bios usually press detete on start up. see if the drive is recognised, if so it may be ok but motherboard gone

can you ectract the disc and install/test in another machine?

Took to tech who took out and tried in another machine. Said it did not work. (Just bit worried since they couldn't find HDD to start with). Said need new HDD. But could we use it as a slave to get data off or can we reinstall op system using recovery disks created when purchased.

Have read a number of old forums of people experiencing similar problems with earlier models of aspire and found still had problems after replacing HDD.

F2 enters setup and can alter way things boot.

Disk is divided into two partitions.
