I have already re-arranged the order of all the boot up options but it still gives me the same message. There does not seem to be any option to disable anything about a "network"

Have you checked in the "Boot Options" list of the BIOS? And if you have rearranged the list and still have the problem, it probably means the computer isn't finding an OS on the hard disk, and you should return it and get a replacement. The unit probably shipped out with incorrect settings or a different problem.

You've been helped by a 15 year old.

If it is brand new then it must be under warranty. Take it back where you got it and get it repaired or replaced.

Did it ever work? Often that message means the bios isn't seeing a hard drive at all and is exhausting the other boot options trying to find a bootable media.

Verify the hard drive is properly configured in cmos/bios setup. You may need the system or motherboard manual for that. Depending on your brief history with it you may also need to open the case and make sure there actually is a hard drive and that it's properly connected.

Did this brand new computer come with an operating system, like Windows, pre-installed or was it shipped bare?
