Many reasons

Could be bad hard drive could be a corrupt master boot record could be bad OS files.
First thing I would try is creating a boot disk from another PC and booting from that disk and running "fdisk /mbr" to attempt to repair the master boot record. If that does not work try booting from your OS disk and running a repair. If that doesn't work Crack open the PC make sure none of the cables has worked itself loose and assuming that is not the case, replace the hard drive.

checkout for some info on fdisk.

Could be even easier

make sure that there isn't a Floppy disk in the machine or a CD in the CDROM. If the boot order tells the PC to look here first it will fail.

LOL! Good point. I didn't even think to suggest that first. Usually new computer will say "Non system disk" but it is best to Keep it simple stupid. (KISS) Try that first.

Computer if it is call the help desk from the manual, because if you do any thing it may void the warrenty. Check your documentation and be sure you are not voiding it first.
Then if you are out of warrenty try the idaes from the other people, if that does not work. Reset the BIOS by moving the jumper on the mother board, look to the main board web site on how to do this.
