This mostly means, that no harddrive or CD/DVD was found to boot from and the computer tries to find a server, that supports network booting, to start an operating system from such server.

Were there ever installed an operating system to your computer?
If so, what happend last, before you got this message?

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

This could happen if the CMOS battery failed and the boot order changed. Go into the BIOS and check the boot order.

I had the same problem with myToshiba Satellite C655-S5061. Symptoms were that the system lost momentary contact with the HDD, and a spontaeous reboot would occur. Since I done use a cable to get to my homenetwork, I disabled the PCI 'card' through BIOS/CMOS setup. Afterward, when another spontaneous reboot occurred, the notice was "no boot device detected" or words to that effect. Anyway, I received a reply to my question on this site to check certain things. One of the recs was change the HDD. I have, and it's been working fine for the last 2 days. I'm (only) a bit surprised at a HDD failure after less than 4 months in my posession. However, things happen.
