Your computer seems to be attempting to boot through the network. Since you don't have any servers on your network, it gives you that error message. Enter your BIOS setup and make sure the hard drive is in the correct boot order. It should probably be put right after the CD-ROM drive.

Good luck!

You need to replace the cmos battery and then reset the bios to default settings.
