can you get into the BIOS?
if so, would u make sure the boot orders are following:
1st. boot from hard drive,
2nd, cd rom
4th, network adaptor?
save changes and try restart.
i hope you do have OS installed.
if not change 2nd part to 1st, and 1st to 2nd.
i have gotten the same error with my laptop. my computer was trying to load window from network, through network adapter.
hope this information helps.

It sounds like your Hard Drive may have went bad, My dell C640 did the exact same thing, I was able to get it to work a couple of times by taking it out and shaking it a little its kinda hit and miss if you can get it to work that way, But if you can save all your files to a storage device right away so you don't loose it all, and thats if you can even get it to fire up for you. I am almost positive thats the problem. You can get a new one from the manufacture or off ebay. Hope that solves you problem, The reason it won't boot off the install disk is the hard drive is not working anymore, Alright take care If you need help finding or how to write me back
