The first thing to check is your boot order in the BIOS.
Unplug from power, remove battery wait a solid 5 minutes and try again.
Go into the BIOS and choose the Default settings.
It sounds like it can't find a hard drive to boot from so it's looking for the Network to boot from.
If you have an external CD/DVD drive try to boot your OS from that (after changing the boot order).
It may be a failed hard drive.
