Question about Toshiba Satellite Laptop with AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor QL-60 - Onyx Blue PC Notebook
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.

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.
