Re: missing operating system

Does it have the hard drive?  If the hard drive is missing it will give this error.

 

If it does have the hard drive, it looks like the previous owner wiped the disk.

 

Is there a Windows sticker on the bottom of the laptop?  If so, which Windows version does it indicate?

 

You are going to need an install disk for Winows or the Toshiba recovery CD.
