SOURCE: Toshiba latop 0201 #ide problem

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.

SOURCE: phoenix bios password

A direct way to blank out a BIOS password would be to remove the CMOS battery for a bit; I'm not sure where that would be in that particular laptop but commonly it is a small round flat battery

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite laptop w/ blank, black screen & blinking cursor

the hard drive is not checking in correctly. go into your f2 function which is your bios. see if in there during the boot options if you have a hard drive showing up. if you do, you would need to check if the hard drive has failed or the o.s. is corrupt.if you do not see a drive there, its failed, check to see if its seated correctly. if it is seated correctly the drive has failed and will need to be replaced.


if it shows up, and if you have your restore disk, load it and select repair. it will look for the hard drive and any windows installations. if it does not find any. then the drive is bad and will need to be replaced, in the event it does find the windows installation then continue to repair the machine software.

Let me know what happens when you try this

Good Luck!

Automatic on toshiba p755


Not sure what system you are talking about. If you are saying that your Toshiba is automatically powering on then you may have a feature called wake on LAN enabled. Press the key at power on to go into your setup menu, look for the wake on LAN (sometimes called magic packet) feature under power control and disable it.

Go to F2 option. That should be - enter BIOS Setup.
Look at the main menu (Which it automatically goes to)
Or use Down Arrow to highlight Standard BIOS options, and press Enter key.

Is the Harddrive listed? HDD0 has harddrive info listed to the right?

I use Toshiba Satellite L310. When i starting on the computer, i didn't see any command key to get into my computer BIOS. I just see a TOSHIBA logo.


Normally it's F2 to get into the BIOS, F12 to getr into the BOOT order menu. If you get problems loading, check that the LAN/Modem is connected (if it is wired), as the computer may need that items authentication before it will load Windows.

If I want to add more memory beyond the 8gb max from the MFR, will it work?


You cannot add more RAM that the recommended max. specified by the manufacture.
If you could install more than it 8Gb, either the laptop won't work OR it cannot access more than 8Gb of RAM.

How do I enter setup when there is no option to enter


F2 is your bios setup, and F12 is the boot order selection, if you cannot access the two options there is no other way. That shows up when the Toshiba logo is visable. If your windows run properly I would not risk formatting the hard drive. But it might be worth contacting Toshiba, customer and technical support about the unusuall situation.

When i turn on my computer a black screen pops up saying enter current password._ Unable to use f2 or f12 What am I supposeed to do


Hi

You could try to start up in safe mode ( quite often f8 ) sign in as administrator and cancel the password

Also if you get into safe mode try a system restore back to when it was ok

Or hit delete key a few times when starting up hopefully this will take you into the bios because the f12 or f2 key may be disabled

Be very careful what you change in your bios because on a laptop its not very easy to change jumpers on bios battery so only enable the f2 or f12 then hit save and exit windows will then restart

But be very very carefull not to play around in the bios if you dont understand it you may end up with BIG BIG Problems
