Its problem two things. One, the fan on the heat sink or your hard drive. More than likely your hard drive.

Toshiba Portege r200 was working normal (up until yesterday). Today, when I first turned it on, the fan was on and it sounded full blast, but screen remained dark (blank). I held power button until it shut...


The part that supplies the power to the screen is gone. I recall is is called the 'exciter'. They can be replaced, so take it to a computer repair shop. Same thing happened to my Toshiba.

I am hearing a noise, like a whirring sound that speeds up with the acceleration and makes no noise when in park. Does this sound like cv joint trouble?


a whirring sound can be a bearing on a component under the hood.(power steering pump,alternator,idler pulley bearing,etc),it can also be a serpentine belt from a worn belt or belt tensioner a cv joint won`t make a whirring sound(it will cause a clunking noise or a vibration).

My 2002 SC2 is making loud, whirring, almost clunking noise front right when I step on brakes, slow down, or turn. Just had front ends replace and that didn't fix the problem. What else could it be?


a whirring noise is most likley a wheel bearing. The fact that you can make it louder by placing more weight on the that side by turning confirms this. Not sure what you mean by having the front end replaced since this term doesnt apply to this condition.

How to install win xp in toshiba portage r200 laptop


This is resolved by installing Intel Storage Manager drivers through "F6" option on XP Setup. YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK (A Drive)...as the Portege doesn't come with one...and XP does not support USB or CD ROM for this particular function.

Toshiba R200 aniversary edition UK -LCD replacment


Hi there.
Yes some screens are interchangeable between laptops, the best way to find out is take the screen out and take note of the serial number behind the screen and the ribbon cable connectors to see how many pins they have (some laptop screens differ) if the serial numbers correspond and the cable fits then you should be good to go.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
