@Hunter2995, welcome to the forum.


Since you didn't provide the model or product number for the computer, I don't know how old it is.  Normally, this message is telling you that the hard drive has failed.  The only remedy is, replace the drive.  You can run a SMART test to see if it verifies that the drive has failed.
