If you have a disc in the drive take it out and try again.

Unfortunately it sounds like your hard drive has failed and it's looking to boot from the CD/DVD.

Do you know how to get into the BIOS or setup.

When the logo comes up, on the bottom of the screen prompts will come up, (setup=F10).

The key that links to the setup is what you need to press.

In the BIOS, you need to check if your hard drive is detected.

I am a hardware guy not a software guy but i try to help.
