    Take it in for repair. If you're lucky, it's a loose cable. Otherwise, your hard drive probably died, or you BIOS needs resetting.

    A loose cable takes about 5 minutes or less after the cover is removed to find, so you're probably out about 30 - 50 dollars. A BIOS reset, about the same money. A dead hard drive, hard drives retail just under $100, the computer needs a new OS and all programs and data reloaded, which can take a couple of days, and if the data wasn't backed up data recovery services START at about $500 for a simple hard drive.

    Also, check if a USB thum drive is left in it... oddly, this can cause some machines to freeze up with this error due to poorly made BIOS boot methods.
