|That message usually means the hard drive is dead or missing.|
Bios controls what happens when you first turn on the computer, before it loads windows. Bios setup allows you to configure some of the hardware. To access bios setup on yours it looks like you need to press F2 after starting it up. Best to tap F2 several times after starting it so the posting process sees it.
You need to check in bios setup to see if it's showing a hard drive as being installed. If it shows a hard drive the problem may be with the boot order--that is which devices the computer will try to boot from and in what order. Sometimes bios setup can be confusing and you may need to consult the user guide. I don't have a link to that at the moment but it should be on the Asus support page for your model.
