That means that your laptop can't access your hard drive. It is possible that battery that keeps the config information had died and the laptop has just lost its config. It is also possible that your had drive is dead. You should go into the BIOS and be sure that the hard drive is recognized by the BIOS and is set as a boot device.

Did you drop your laptop recently?

When this happened to my laptop, I took the battery out, pressed the power button about 5 times holding it down for 5 seconds each time, replaced the battery, pressed the power button again and it started up lil normal. I got lucky that it worked for me, it was the first thing I did on my quest to fixing the problem.
