Looks like your hard-disk is not responding at startup.
Is this a sudden condition or did you have this condition sometimes in the past?

Having chosen a 'best answer' does that mean you've figured out the problem?

If not, did anything happen to the computer or did you make any changes to it between the last time it worked OK and the first time it didn't?

If your cmos battery died the settings would revert to default. It's possible the drive or its controller need to be configured differently.

Check the user manual for your model. If you don't have it you can usually download it from the support page for your model. Replacing the battery isn't a problem with a desktop but can be a hassle with a laptop. Then check the manual's section on bios setup for advice on configuring the drive and controller.

Of course it's possible the drive has failed and the cmos battery is a separate issue.

Your computer is trying to boot from the built-in network card. Reboot the computer, go into your BIOS and check and see what the boot order is.

If your Network card is not set as the first boot device, then it's possible your HDD has gone bad.

If the CMOS battery is bad, the BIOS settings will revert to defaults. That might be your problem. For example, if you have a SATA HDD & the controller setting resets to IDE, the drive will no longer be properly recognized.

Even if the battery is bad, all you would have to do is make the necessary changes in the BIOS, save them, then reboot. As long as the computer is not shutdown afterwards, it should work properly. But as soon as you shut it down, the BIOS will reset again because the battery is unable to maintain power to the CMOS chip that stores the saved BIOS settings.

Of course, if the HDD is bad, it's bad, & will have to be replaced. Try running a diagnostics program from a bootable disc before buying a replacement.

Your computer isn't seeing a hard drive so it's not able to 'reboot' (which I think by your usage of the word you mean to restore the drive's contents) so the first thing to do is to figure out why that's happening. So get/download the manual for your model, as I mentioned above, and read how to properly configure the drive in bios setup
