Question about Toshiba Satellite M30X Notebook
When i start the laptop it stuck at the first toshiba screen means f2 and f12 key screen...and aftera 10 min it show one error code 0201 #ide o error and there is two options to boot and bios.. wat should i do for this troubles
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 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.
