It sounds like there is a hard-drive problem. To help you further I would need your complete laptop model number. If your hard drive is indeed dead, most likely it's not too difficult to replace and a 2.5" hard drive is not that expensive.

Hope this Helps

    Well after checking for your specific model, the hard drive is extremely easy to replace! It's most likely that the hard drive went bad, as i said before you can buy a 2.5" hard drive for about $100.00.

    When you turn your laptop upside down it's located on the bottom left corner, 2 screws are probably holding the cover, then just swap it, not forgetting to take the connector from the old one and put it on the new one. You will need the systems disks, hopefully you got them from toshiba. Putting it in ur cdrom will start the install, after that, it's pretty self explanatory.

    Otherwise you can always let a store do it for you.



    I might write an article on this in my website www.customautomaticsystems.com as this happened to me before.

Hi I have a Toshiba Tecra M2 laptop with Windows XP Pro SP3. My CD-RW/DVD-ROM/CD-ROM drive is not working. When I try to burn a disc, it says no recorder, or no disc in drive. Also, Windows doesn't seem to...


>> it says IDE #1 error when it boots up.

IDE #0 is your disk-drive.
IDE #1 is your CD/DVD drive.

So, take your computer to a qualified technician, to first check that the connectors (power, data) from the motherboard to the CD/DVD drive are good, and then, if necessary, to remove & replace the "dead" drive.

IDE#0 ERROR


Usually the HDD is set on IDE #0.
The PXE error appears if the notebook tries to boot up from the LAN but the cable is not connected or there is no possibility for LAN booting.

In my opinion there is something wrong with the HDD or the BIOS cannot recognize the HDD correctly. I would recommend checking the HDD pins. Furthermore you should change the booting order in the BIOS.

This error is telling you that either one of three things have happened. 1. Your hdd cable has come loose or failed. 2. Your HDD has failed, or 3. the IDE controller on the motherboard has failed. You can check problems by trying a known good hdd in place of your old hdd. If bios sees it then it is the drive itself that is bad not the cable or controller. If it does not see the good hdd then try replacing the cable. If this fixes the problem then remove good drive & replace with your old hdd. Problem should be solved. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Toshiba Satellite laptop boots up but shuts down on its own very shortly


Hi JOJO0803,

Based from the error message you're getting it sounds to me that your problem there is not software related but is more hardware in nature.Since you're getting a message "disk read error occurred IDE#0" this pertains to a problem with the hard drive itself. It's possible that your hard drive developed bad sectors or errors on the disc itself.

So to be sure I would recommend that you run the hardware diagnostics for your laptop computer especially the one for the hard drive since you're getting this message. If the hard drive fails the test or any other part fails in the test, contact your techsupport and ask for replacement parts if your PC is still under warranty. Otherwise you may have to buy parts for your laptop.

If the hard drive tests passed and all the other hardware tests also passed then you may proceed to troubeshoot the software using the Windows XP Home CD. Boot from the WinXP Home CD, and you get to the setup screen, choose "R" for recovery console and then on the prompt type "CHKDSK /R" let it run, it may take a while. afterwards it will bring you back to the prompt then type EXIT and it will reboot the system, see if that fixes the problem. Worst case scenario you may have to format then reinstall Windows XP again to fix this problem.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

I have Qosmio E15 and it wont boot


Go here: http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm#DFT And download the drive fitness test, burn it to a .ISO bootable CD, and boot from the disc. Run a FULL SCAN and it will tell you if the HDD is bad, which is highly likely.
