Hi,
ยท Was there any change prior to this issue?
Personal files are located under c:\users\<username>\. You may try to access from that location and check.
Step 1: As a work around, perform system restore.

Step 2: If that does not resolve, then check in new user account.
Check the link "Create a user account" http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Create-a-user-account
If the issue does not persist in new user account do the steps in the following link "Fix a corrupted user profile" http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Fix-a-corrupted-user-profile

Boot device not found, insert a boot disk and press any key


The "no bootable devices found" error can create headaches, as well as occasional heartache if you're a laptop user. This error appears when your computer is unable to find a device or file required for normal operation. It could indicate one of three issues: hard drive failure, software error or motherboard malfunction. Any of these potential problems can render your laptop useless. Hard drive failure or software errors can lead to data loss, which can cause anguish and catastrophe, depending on the files business information, family photos, student projects at risk.
Hard Drive Failure
The interior of a hard drive is akin to a turntable. Most hard drives contain two to three discs, known as platters, which are similar to records. These platters are read and written on by a tiny needle called the read/write head, similar to the arm and needle on a turntable. When a hard drive functions properly, the platters spin and the read/write head accesses the files necessary to boot your computer. Improper function of any of these physical pieces can cause a mechanical failure and result in the "no bootable devices" error. Software Error
In rare instances, a software problem more specifically, a particularly nasty virus may cause the "no bootable devices" error.
Most often, if a virus attacks and corrupts your system, your computer can still detect the hard drive and operating system, and you'll see some attempt at a normal boot.
If a virus attacks certain system and startup files, however, they may not be detectable next time you boot your computer, thus causing you to see "no bootable devices."
This may also happen if you are manually deleting files from your computer and accidentally delete system files.
Motherboard
Sometimes individual components of your laptop's motherboard malfunction, which can cause problems ranging from loss of wireless capabilities to inability to detect an external power source.
If the components that detect your hard drive fail, your laptop is unable to receive signals from the hard drive and therefore may display the "no bootable devices" error.
Repair
Fixing a "no bootable devices" error can prove costly.
If motherboard failure caused the error, you're probably better off purchasing a new laptop; unless it's under warranty; the average motherboard replacement costs $250 to $500.
You can reinstall your operating system to resolve software errors, which is fairly inexpensive by computer repair standards, costing $80 to $130 dollars, but this step may also overwrite your existing data.
In some cases, data may prove so badly corrupted it's not salvageable.
If you can recover it, however, that raises your repair costs. additional fee.
If hard drive failure caused your "no bootable devices" error, you can replace the drive.
If you need to recover data from a malfunctioning hard drive, send it to a clean room for recovery.
In a clean room, technicians disassemble your hard drive and image each platter; this kind of data recovery is extremely expensive, costing up to $2000 depending on the work involved.
Prevention
There is no way to guarantee you will never receive a "no bootable devices" error, but there are some steps you can take to help prevent it from happening.
Keep your laptop on a flat surface when using it, and avoid any bumps that may cause the hard drive's read/write mechanism to lock up.
Avoid transporting your laptop while the hard drive is active; turn your computer off while traveling.
Additionally, regularly run an anti-malware program to catch and remove viruses or spyware before they cause system problems.

I beg to differ Ron,

http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=1596136

Click on the - Manuals & Specs - tab.

(Support Highlights / Drivers & Updates / Community Forums / Knowledge Base / Manuals & Specs )

Click on the third file down in Blue -

Satellite A100_A105 (06Jan17)

It's a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name, it may take up to 30 seconds; before the first page comes up.

Took about 6 seconds, and I'm using a medium speed DSL connection.

Wireless not working pc told me error 651


In windows 7, when you try to connect using your PPPoE connections, you may be faced with the following error: Error 651: The Modem (or other connecting device) has reported an error.
These connections would work just fine with Windows XP or Windows Vista PCs.
Again, you are not alone, this seems to be a known bug in Windows 7 that is being worked at. However, you can workaround this problem.
The RAS PPPoE driver file "raspppoe.sys" found under c:windowssystem32drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, we can workaround the problem simply by renaming the original raspppoe.sys file to something like "raspppoe_orig.sys" copying a working file from a Windows Vista system . If you do not have access to a Windows Vista system. click here to download raspppoe.sys file (unzip)

Error 1311: source file not found:E\LENOVO3000 Y410 USER GUIDE\VISTA\6.LAN\FILES6~1.cab , Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.


The cause of the error is a problem with the Microsoft® Windows® Installer program used by the software. It produces the error when the registry entry AllocateCDRoms at the following subkey is set to a value of 1.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon



Warning!
Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft has provided a wealth of critical information you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.

Use the Microsoft® Registry Editor only at your own risk and only after backing up the registry as well as the system.dat and user.dat files as outlined in ARTICLE-ID: Q132332 "How to Back Up the Registry" in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Additional information about the registry is also contained in the Help topics in the Microsoft Registry Editor.

Start the Registry Editor and locate the following subkey:

goto start->run and type regedit to start registry editor

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon


Change the value for the AllocateCDRoms entry to 0.
Exit the Registry Editor.
