Seems the harddrive in your laptop has failed or is loose.

most likely you need to buy a new harddrive for your laptop.

Will turn in but won't really start up, message pops up sayin I have problems on my laptop but it can't fix them? Read description


When your toshiba splash screen is showing on startup, press F8 continuously, then you should get some options, go to the one that says safe mode. After loading windows in safe mode click start, search, and type system restore. Open system restore, find a date where your pc was working correctly and click restore. If this doesn't do it on the toshiba spash screen (if you have a new enough laptop) there will be an option called system recovery usually f11 key, this will restore your pc back to its factory state and should resolve any problems your having. If you don't have that option go to https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/serviceUnitVerification.jsp and see if you can order a set of recovery disc's for your model, they usually run from $25-$30. Hope this helps.

I got a Toshiba Satellite A15-S1292 at a yard sale and immediately upon booting I received this message: IDE #0 ERROR Intel(R) Boot Agent FE v4.1.09 Copyright (C) 1997-2002, Intel...


Hi Jon.

Go into the BIOS confuguration by pressing the F2 key as the laptop starts up and set the BIOS to its default configuration. Save the changes by pressing the F10 key or save in the BIOS menu. The computer will restart so see if that has made any difference.
If you still get the same IDE #0 error then the hard drive is ready for failing. A replacement hard drive will not cost much at all.
Seeing as you have only spent $20 on the laptop in the first place you have got yourself a bargain there. Spend a liitle money on a new drive and OS then you could have a fully working laptop.




Regards.

Toshiba Satelite M35-456 Error 0201 Failure IDE #0


Here is the Toshiba official line on that error.
If you've already run through their fixes, you could try using the Ultimate Boot CD to test the hard drive, or run Chkdsk c: /r from the recovery console to attempt to recover any bad sectors
Then consult this link and apply the pertinent fixes to attempt to repair the MBR.
Other possibly helpful links here and here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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.

Check the status of the device in Device Manager to make sure that the device driver is working correctly. (If you need help doing that please ask.)

If no joy then:
Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); 1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager. 3. On the right side, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. 4. Right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. Typically, this channel is Secondary IDE Channel. 5. On the Advanced Settings tab, in the Transfer Mode box for the device that represents your CD drive, click PIO Only. Typically, this device is Device 0. Then, click OK. If the issue is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE channel device 0, your CD drive may not be located there. Use the same procedure to change the transfer mode back to DMA if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the issue is resolved: • Primary IDE channel, device 1 • Secondary IDE channel, device 1Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.
