You lost the operating "SYSTOM"? The only way to start up your computer is to install a whole new OS. If the Computer can accept a 64 Bit operating system, the new Windows 8.1 version that just came out is the best way to go.

If you are on a computer that you usually use, and you get this message, it means that the Operating System startup files are corrupted, or erased. If you want to upgrade your PC to a new operating system, you need

1. to get a DVD of the new operating system,
2. Put it in your DVD drive
3. Turn on your computer. When your computer is turning on, press the F?? key that is displayed on your monitor when it starts up that says "Boot menu"
4. When the boot menu appears, tell your computer to boot from the DVD. When it finds the DVD, it will start your computer with the new operating system. Some operating systems allow you to repair your desktop/laptop, if the DVD is the same operating system that is on your desktop/laptop.

Cannot find operating systom

Either the hard drive is faulty, or the boot loader is corrupt. A quick way to check the drive would be to attach it to another computer to see if the drive is recognized.
If this is a windows OS you can try using the installation disk to repair the boot manager. If this is a linux system, try booting a live CD and see if there is data on the hard drive. You may need to reinstall grub.

I would also run smartmontools or Disk Sentinel to check the drive health in detail. Both applications are free.

Says boot device not found .please install an operating system on your hard disk

it means there is no operating system on the device you are using to boot your computer. make sure you have your boot device set to your hard drive unless you are installing a new operating system if so your first boot device should be your cd/dvd and your HD peta/seta IDE second .

How to reformat a laptop

This may vary depending on your laptop make and model. The standard method for reformatting any PC (Desktop or laptop) is to insert your manufacturer provided Operating System disc into the CD/DVD ROM.
Your submission says this is a Dell laptop so the moment you turn on the computer begin pressing F12 to trigger the one time boot menu. Insert the Operating System disc into the computer while you are at the menu then select boot to CD/DVD ROM (the actual choice will vary depending on your hardware).
Since you presumably have an Operating System installed you may need to interact with the boot to cd/dvd to make sure that you do indeed boot to the disc. Once you have booted to the disc follow the on screen instructions to format the system and re-install your Operating System

My tosshiba satellite A665-55186 wont go in to windows boot, what can i do??

Just like other computers, your Toshiba laptop may start failing to boot the operating system completely, or may fail to boot up at all. Boot problems are caused by virus infections and issues related to hardware and software. With the proper troubleshooting techniques, boot problems can be remedied to get the laptop into good working condition.

1. Perform initial hardware checks. Ensure that the laptop has enough battery life to boot up. Charge the laptop using its AC adapter and then try to boot the laptop again. If nothing happens, plug the AC adapter into another power outlet. If this does not help, check to see if external drives (flash drive, external hard drive, etc.) are connected into one of your USB ports. Unplug it from the laptop and press the laptop's power button. If the laptop powers on but fails to load the operating system, proceed to the next step.

2. Ensure that the hard disk is not disabled in the boot sequence in your BIOS. Otherwise, the laptop will fail to fully boot the operating system. Reboot the computer and press a key that will lead you to the BIOS page. Set your hard disk as your "first boot priority," or first in the "boot sequence." Note that the steps on loading the BIOS as well as navigating throughout the BIOS pages will depend on what brand of BIOS is installed in your laptop.

3. Choose boot to the "Last known good configuration" if you get an error page before the operating system boots up. If after choosing this option the computer reboots again, choose "Start Windows Normally," if this is in the list of options.

4. Consider repairing or reinstalling the operating system if the computer still fails to boot after the steps above. Repairing the operating system will retain your current data and settings. Reinstalling the operating system means reformatting or deleting all data in your computer and installing a fresh copy of the operating system.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards from fixya
