Error 0200: Failure Fixed Disk 0

Hey everyone. I've got another problem. I'm getting a error 0200 message many times when I try to boot my computer.
Here's my details:

OS: XP
x86
Computer age: ~4 years
Acer Aspire 5102 WLMi
OS age: 2 weeks
CPU: AMD Turion 64 x2, 1.6 GHz, 512KB L2 cache
Video card: ATI Radeon Xpress 1100
(According to Speccy) Motherboard: Acer Navarro (Socket M2/S1G1), AIT Xpress 200 (RS480) chipset
Power supply: Not even sure where to look on a laptop. Do you just want what's on the black chunk half-way between the plug and the computer itself on the power cord?

I get the message many times when I boot the computer, but not every time. So I've taken to just trying and trying until I get booted. Here's the message I get:


"Phoenix TrustedCore (tm) NB

Fixed Disk 0: ST9q2p8r1A``````````````
Mouse initalized
ERROR
0200: Failure Fix Disk 0"

Then I get the option to press F1 to continue boot or F2 to load the boot menu. When I press F1, I get this message (white letters on a black background again):

"Intel UNDI PXE-2.0 (build 082)
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326)

Client MAC ADDR: 00 66 D4 11 5B 4B
GUID: 37363032-3130-3335-3761D4115B4B
DHCP..."

It will add periods after the DHCP for 30 seconds (some sort of scan?). After that, the DHCP goes away and it says:

"PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE Rom"

That was actually the message I used to get. Thinking that my HD was failing, I bought new one. Now I get the exact same message, except the "Fixed Disk 0" has a different string of numbers/letters after it. So I have a brand new hard drive, and I'm still having the problem.

I also tried disabling my RealTek PCI Fast Ethernet Controller. The message changes slightly with that too. I get that first part, but after I hit F1, the screen just stays black with the flashing dash in the upper left corner of the screen.

Anyone have any thoughts as to what I should do or what the problem is?
