Sounds like you can not boot into your OS. I would use the F2 option to very that your hard drive is listed as a boot device.

Also what is the full error message that you are getting. We, IT people, tend to solve things better when we have an error message.

This Message typically pops up on the optiplex series machines when the bios battery is drained. Change out the battery and then enter setup, then exit setup saving the settings and all should be good in your world again.

(esentially the battery got low, the bios could not retain the HD auto detected settings and the drive could not be read)
