Dead Toshiba Satelite Pro - IDE #1 Error
I've got an old Toshiba Satelite Pro that I use to run my mobile disco at weekends. Friday night, worked perfect as normal .... Saturday night switched on "IDE #1 Error"
Once the error is displayed, after a short delay the boot process continues and tries other boot devices and ends up failing.
I've replaced the HD with a new Seagate 160GB and still get the IDE #1 error. I then removed the DVD drive and still the same error. Even with no drives in the laptop at all - IDE Error.
I'm now guessing that the motherboard has died. Would you agree?
