The BIOS isn't detecting a hard drive so it's trying to boot off a network drive instead. No network drive was found, therefore you're being told to check the cable.

The problem is either that your hard drive failed, someone messed with the cables inside the case, or the BIOS settings were somehow changed (possibly a bad CMOS battery). The 1st thing you need to do is boot into the BIOS & see if the hard drive is being detected or not.
