Power off the computer, remove the case, and check all the cables to make sure they're connected.

This problem is commonly caused by one of two problems. Unless someone has made an error in attempting to change the boot order.

1. The BIOS battery has failed and the bootup order has changed to the network interface.
2. The hard drive has failed and the system has attempted to boot from the next device in line, which is often the network.

Boot into the BIOS and report what the first boot device is.

"my pc in bedroom"

That tells us it's not a mac, but doesn't tell us whether it's a desktop computer, or a laptop or netbook computer.

Your problem is common for a laptop or netbook computer, rare for a desktop computer.

Check the Boot Order or similar settings in the computer's bios Setup.
