Hmm, try changing the boot order in your BIOS to hard drive first. Make sure there are now discs in the CD-ROM drive or in the floppy drive. If that doesn't work, the hard drive might have failed. Try swapping out the hard drive.

I spelled that wrong, I meant make sure there are NO discs in the CD-ROM or floppy drive.
