The computer is looking for some form of bootable media (an operating system). In order to be able to boot or get your computer running you will need an operating system (windows 7, windows 8, windows 8.1 etc.)

I've observed this when the boot devices list in the BIOS had been changed. The Hard Drive was no longer included in the boot devices list. I fixed it by setting the BIOS back to default settings.
To get into the BIOS in your Satelite I think your need to repeatedly tap the ESC key as soon as the computer starts to boot.
Then look at the boot sequence.

+1 to the above, check your bios settings for the correct bootable drive

Did you get in to the BIOS?
Maybe it's not the ESC key but some other.
Take a look at this video:

I think F2 is the key you need to press to get into the BIOS on that model of laptop.
Most of the time the screen is blank?
That's a different issue to the boot sequence and it might be caused by a dead battery (even though your are using mains power).
Take the battery out of the back of the laptop and try powering up using main electricity only.
