There are potentially two different issues: A power controller failure, or a FSB malfunction. Both have sollutions and I wrote extensive guides with photos and everything. Both require only time and skills, so the fix is not like the repair centers' do it by changing the motherboard and charging $300. You'll be basically repairing the motherboard instead of replacing it.

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.

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.

If it won't let you go to safe mode,then there's something that the BIOS(setup) or Boot Manager needs before starting the operating system(Windows Vista). You should have a Toshiba Recovery Disk which will fix this . The disk will not touch any of your current files and data,so don't worry about that.

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.

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

Cmos setup screen


If you're trying to get to the bios set up, when the initial Toshiba screen comes up it will tell you what to press for the set up towards the bottom of the screen.
