More than likely your hard drive (the device that saves all the information on the computer) is bad, or for some reason the computer isn't looking to boot from the hard drive. Remove all removable media from your computer, such as flash drives or cd's and try to boot again.
As I doubt the latter is the case, you will probably want to see if you still have an active service plan / warranty on your laptop. If you do, take it back to where you bought it or contact Toshiba for additional free support. If you do not, then you will either want to take it to your local repair store or if you have some computer knowledge you can probably attempt to run some diagnostics yourself. For example Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test is a very good hard-drive diagnostic utility.
Speaking from experience if you don't have any protection, this repair can cost upwards of $300-$400. If you can do it yourself you might be looking at the cost of the hard drive and you will likely need to order the Recovery Discs (windows installation discs) from Toshiba.

Need to reboot my toshiba satellite L750D laptop with Windows 7


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My laptop says no bootable device insert disk what is wrong?


NO BOOTABLE DEVICE When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk in the floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it may be a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

The laptop won't boot


probably the hard drive in your laptop is gone.
try booting ubuntu in live mode, so without installing it.
when the boot is completed, launch the tool gparted and see if it detects the hard drive: if it doesn't, you need to change the hard disk..
