This is often caused by either an incorrect setting in BIOS (usually the boot order) or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk.
Go into the BIOS and make sure the boot order is as follows: 1 CD-ROM; 2 Hard Disk; all the other disabled. Once you are sure of that try to boot again; if it's the same then the hard disk has died. If you have on it data that you can't lose boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/ and recover what you can (copy them to a USB stick).
Replace the hd and reinstall.
