If your system is still under warranty, take it back to the supplier if not then your nearest pc repair centre. Sounds to me like your HDD is going. This is rather unusual considering most of them are SSDs but some do have 1.8" ZIF drives in.

Start the computer and keep tapping F2.
No u will be in the setup utility.
Press F9 for loading default settings and press enter.
Press F10 for saving settings and press enter.
Now your computer will restart.
If u are getting the same error message, u should replace your hard drive.
If not, try doing a complete system recovery.
Follow the steps to do system recovery.

Power on the netbook and keep tapping Alt+F10.
That will take u in to the recovery mode.
Select complete system recovery.
This process will take around 30 to 45 min and make sure u plug in the AC adapter.
Also note that u will lose all your datas.

It looks as though the laptop is not recognising the hard drive, there is no hard drive fitted or there is a hard drive but the OS boot record has been wiped ( I know this sounds obvious but some people buy these 2nd hand only to find the hard drive was removed)

You need to check the hard drive is present by booting to the bios screen it should "see" the hard drive attached. If it is present, then you have a problem with the OS or a damaged hard drive. I think its DEL or F2 or F10 to access the bios, not certain.

At this point, you need to attempt to reinstall the OS, as this does not have an optical drive, you will need to obtain a USB Optical drive, go into the bios and see that it is recognised as a boot device. Do not worry about setting the boot order, the Bios will locate the rom as a boot device.

Attempt a start up repair, ie: wait until the installer looks for a previous installation of windows (if one exists) then allow it to install a repair installation. If it does NOT find this, you will need to doa full install. If at this point you have files you need recovering, a strip down of the netbook and removal of the hard drive will be necessary. You simply then get someone with a computer to jumper your hard drive as a slave and recover the files you need, as a full install requires the hard drive to be fully wiped.

Replace the hard drive after you have done this and proceed with the full reinstall

You can use a USB boot device, but to do this you will need to have access to another computer to make the boot installer:

Constant No bootable device--Please restart system.

Reinstal windows. That looks like corrupt files or the hdd is crashing or the system was disconnected from a power source before it had closed down properly, (causing damaged system files).

My toshiba c55t a5222 laptop says no bootable device please restart system and I just got this laptop. But I didn't push reset factory setting then it popped up.

I'm thinking the hard drive is either damaged or the operating system is missing. Might be worthwhile to have it checked out or return it for a refund if it's brand new.

Hope this helps!

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.

No bootable device found

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.
