Boot Device Not Found

HP Pavilion G6 Notebook PC

Hi, so i've had the below message show on start up :

 

Boot Device Not Found

Please install an operating System on your hard disk

Can someone please tell me what has happened and if it is fixable or is it more advisable to purchase a new laptop?

 

Thanks inadvance. 🙂
