When you see "No bootable device" in Toshiba, one of the possible reasons is your computer doesn't have the properly boot order, so your system couldn't find the proper boot device when starting. To fix the problem, you should set the boot order correctly.

On machines with the F key numbers on the bottom edge of the keys and in Gray: Power up the laptop. When the initial TOSHIBA screen displays, press the F12 key to enter the boot menu. Use the arrow keys to select the HDD Recovery option and press the enter key to begin.

The following page offers information about a Toshiba recovery disk as well as alternatives. It does not refer to the Windows 10 OS, however. You would do well to check the Toshiba site for information about recovering your particular model and OS. A user guide should be available there. https://neosmart.net/wiki/toshiba-recovery-disk/

The HDMI connector at your laptop is output. The HDMI connector at the DVD player is an output also. So it's out of the question to connect two outputs, you may want to use the HDMI output from the dvd player to be connected at a tv or screen with HDMI input.

Toshiba... | Answered on Jan 17, 2020

you are here because Toshiba's online help is gone. sure.
they tell you there to go to tomshardware and as there.
no PC stated at all model name and numbers..
what if kids set the password, playing with it.
remove the battery from the PC, big one
no AC pack.
push power button for 3 times for 10 seconds each.
wait,5min. hands off PC.
now put the AC pack back.
if the PW is still set, then next replace the coin cell battery inside.
on some Toshiba (none stated) that battery is a rechargeable and if bad, very hard to fix.
let the PC run on AC power only for 24hours in the hope that odd duck battery deep inside recharges, leave the big battery out for all tests, (until PC runs ok again on AC power)

never post about a PC unless, the full model # and name is told
example 1(random)
Toshiba Satellite L455d-s5976

Sounds like your hard disk drive has died.
Fit a new SSD (solid state drive)
Did you make a boot disk / thumb drive like Toshiba recommends?
After you fit the new SSD run the boot disk.
No boot disk you will an O.S. to load onto you computer.

To run the boot disk you have to get into setup, press F2 when the computer starts.
Look for the boot disk options, if you are using Thumb Drive switch the boot option to USB.
If you are using a CD switch the boot option to CD.
Close the setup and reboot...
The boot disk will set up the Operating System with the usual questions.

Hope this helps
