I had the same problem on Toshiba M30. The hard drive was good since I was able to install Windows on it, but then when I went to boot from the HD I got the 0201 failure. I then figured it must have something to do with the controller. The way I finally got it to work was to remove the jumper from the HD which was set to "cable select" and thereby force it to be the "master". Could possibly be that by removing and reinstalling the HD that the pins got clean, but I had tried that a few times and it did not help.

IDE #0 is your primary hard drive.

Toshiba's System Errors indicate that the error 0201 Failure IDE #0 may be caused by bad contact points where the drive plugs into the laptop chassis. Toshiba recommends pulling the hard drive in and out several times to clean up the male/female contact points.

Toshiba also said that if this doesn't work to contact one of their service centers for assistance.

The contact points solution rarely works, but is worth a try. Most likely, your hard drive failed and needs to be replaced.

Toshiba Satellite L355D-S7815 had windows 8, opened up laptop and cleaned all the dust out and now when i turn the laptop on it shows the Toshiba screen but no F2 or F12 option's.


What you are talking about is called no POST. You either shocked the cmos and the bios wont load or something is not hooked up right.

Hello, the problem with my mini toshiba nb200 is that when I on it, it shows the initial screen which says ; TOSHIBA Leading Innovation >>> Press [F2] for ...


If you are getting the Toshiba Select F2 or F12 screen the mother board has finished with POST.

Toshiba laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. www.Toshiba.com will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
Hope this fixes your problem.

Bios stuck on my toshiba L305D-S5934 it not doing nothin when pressing F2 or F12 but CTRL/ALT/DELETE then it just restarts.. i took out RAM, then computer will not boot up replace ram one at a time bios...


u can re-set the BIOS by removing the BIOS battery, the BIOS battery(wrist watch cell) is the size of a Dime inside the laptop, so you need to open the laptop, i suggets you visit a technician to do this.
Try doing the following also.
remove the power adaptor and remove the battery from the notebook, keep pressing the power button for 3 - 4 mins. Refit the battery / power and re-start.

Problem with keys used to enter the cmos


For Toshiba notebook PCs manufactured since the introduction of Windows XP, one or more of the following methods will be effective:
  • Toshiba Hardware utility method: Run the Toshiba Hardware utility from the Toshiba Console. It may also accessible (as 'HWSetup') from the Windows Control Panel. Changes to some of the settings will require re-starting the computer. This method is the only way to access the BIOS settings on some notebook PCs (Satellite 5000 series, for example). (For these machines, pressing and holding the F12 key immediately after powering-on the notebook will allow you to alter the notebook's boot priority.)

    If the Toshiba Hardware utility is not present, try the F2 key method and the Esc key method (see below).
  • F2 key method: Turn the computer on. If you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter Setup, do so. The Setup screen will appear.

  • Esc key method: Turn the computer on. If you do not see a prompt to press the F2 key, then immediately press and hold the Esc key for three seconds, and then release it. When prompted to, press the F1 key. The Setup screen will appear.
For more information search on toshiba web.

Thanks
