Whitney, do you have a USB device of some kind - like a thumb/flash drive or external hard drive - connected to the computer?

If so, unplug it and restart your computer - the computer is trying to boot itself from the external drive (which doesn't have an OS) instead of its own hard drive.

If this isn't the problem, and yours is a Drew-issued computer, call the CNS HelpDesk at (973 -408-3205).
