my sons laptop had a clean install a few weeks ago after having a new hard drive fitted. It has now started give this message when he tries to start up;
0200 failure fixed disk. memory configaration erroe. Bank interleave requested but not enabled.

It normally takes about 10 attempts until it boots up. Help.

A quick google suggests that the new hard disk might have failed/be failing. It could also be the drive connector cable is not connected properly.

New hard drive still no good. Been told its the mother board wich is on way out. Apparently a common ACER fault with this lap top. Will been to ask santa for a new one.
Many thanks
