The Hard Drive is not starting up. You can check the Hard Drive and detach/re-attach. If it's a HDD failure, you will need to replace it.
The other issue could be HDD controller on the motherboard.
90%of the time it's a HDD failure.

SOURCE: primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable

Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.

SOURCE: no bootable device message, says insert boot disk what is that

Usually this is idicative of a hard drive failure, try to boot with the windows cd and see if it will boot up. Try this below......


Windows Start-up Errors


First, The basics. You will need a Windows CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from a HP or Compaq, they will not do what you want. You can normally use a Dell disk, also retail box disks (Windows Purchased from the store), or some OEM versions of Windows will work (most of these will have the Microsoft hologram on them).
When you get the system started and it finds your startup disk you will see a screen that says Press any Key to boot from CD. I normally use the space bar as my any key and then you should see a blue screen that says Windows setup in the left hand corner. Wait until you see the welcome to setup screen and then click the "R" key to get to the Recovery Console How long it takes to get to each of these depends on the speed of your system, but I will tell you that it will take a few minutes to finally get to the Console.
Once you are at the Recovery Console you will be given at least one choice of Windows installations. Normally the choice you want is the number 1 choice. Click the number 1 key at the "top" of the keyboard and click enter.
You will be given a message asking for the administrator password. Unless someone or something has messed with your computer there is no password so you just click the enter key.
This will bring you to a prompt that says:
C:\WINDOWS>
Type: cd \ and then click enter
( Note: between "cd" and "\" there should be a "blank space" otherwise the command won't work. If you find that a command hasn't worked make sure you typed it correctly. These are similar to old DOS commands where spaces had to go between each command so DOS knew where one command stopped and another started.)
You are now at the ROOT of the drive where it all begins. The Prompt should now say C:\>
Now type: CHKDSK /R and click enter.
The chkdsk / r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
Now after the chkdsk has run type: FIXBOOT then click enter.
It may prompt you with a warning but continue through it and once fixboot has finished type: EXIT and click enter.
Your system should reboot and when it does click the F8 button to get a windows start menu. Use the up or down arrow to highlight the LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION and click enter. If it was a simple drive error this should have fixed it.

How do I remove a bios boot password off my Toshiba c55 laptop


Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password.
To reset the password, remove the battery, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery, short circuit its terminals with piece of wire for few seconds only then put CMOS battery back and reassemble everthing back as it was.
It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings again.
PS: DON'T DO IT IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO OPEN YOUR LAPTOP OR IF IT IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY.

My toshiba is saying no bootable device?


Hmm.. This seems to be an issue with the Hard drive. If you have a restore CD/DVD you could try to restore your system to the factory settings just and check if the problem goes away. If not, you need to get the systems hard drive replaced. You will loose all your data stored in the laptop. Please visit your nearest laptop service center and get the hard drive fixed.

REFUSE TO BOOT, BLACK SCREEN !!!


Laptops with reset buttons or features usually have a partition where boot files and the operating system are located. If these are corrupted, the system cannot find them anymore, thus the "No bootable device" message. I suspect your hard disk itself is defective or damaged due to the "Checking media" message. I suggest you check the laptop's hard drive first for defects. One easy way is using a "live" linux OS such as Puppy Linux ( Puppy Linux Community Home Getting Started ). You may need to ask a friend to download a free and legal copy of this and burn it to a cd or dvd disc. A live version do not install to the hard drive, only to the laptop's memory so it doesn't matter if your hard disk is dead or not.

My new toshiba laptop display mesage checking media failed after some time displayed no bootable device restart the system


A faulty hard drive or corrupt boot manager will cause that. If it is new, take it back and try to get it replaced. If not, change the hard drive and install a fresh OS.

No bootable device please restart system on toshiba netbook


Hello,
It could be that your harddrive is defective or the boot sequence was set to boot to CD or other bootable device. Go to Bios and reset the settings.

When i boot up my laptop i am getting the error message, "operating system not found." Can you please give me advice on what to do to fix my laptop? Toshiba laptop and im scared i may lose the things


Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.
