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.

Take out the hard drive completely and then see if you hear the clicking noise, if you do then that means the hard drive is bad. Also if it goes right to another message and you don't see the blinking cursor then that also verifies that the hard drive was bad and causing the system to hang.
