Hello and Welcome,

It basically means the BIOS cannot detect your hard drive and it's trying to boot from a network. It may be a bad CMOS battery or the hard drive has failed. If possible remove the drive and connect it to another computer to see if the data can be copied off of it. You could connect it internally, use an external enclosure, or a USB adapter.


I would first try replacing the CMOS battery. If that does not work, then connect the drive to another computer.

It may also mean that it is trying to use a network boot, and not attempting to boot from HDD at all.


Check your boot order in your BIOS options, make sure your HDD is first.
