Yes bunnydawg could be indeed correct. Although also make sure you don't have a flash drive, external hard drive, or any CD/DVD left in the drive first. As they could try to boot from the device and fail (because they are not setup and formatted as bootable) and it will report the very same message.

Do you have the original cds for the computer? If you do, you will hae to download everything beginning with windows whatever you have. Unfortunately eveerything saved on your hard drive will be erased, but your computer should work after completing this.

Its possible the computer is trying to boot from another device, as the computer starts up hit the F12 key, this should bring up boot options, select HDD if it's in the list.
If not hit F2 as it starts and enter the BIOS, look for the boot option and set the HDD as the first boot device, hit F10, save the changes and exit.
The computer will restart and hopefully boot into the operating system
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.

If you don't have documents, pictures,
etc on the hard drive that you need to backup, try running system
recovery by doing the following (not sure if this works on the version
with a solid state drive):
1. Turn on the computer
2. Press and hold Alt + F10
3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default
4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK
* This will return your netbook to the condition it was in from the manufacturer.
