Sounds like the computer can't find your boot hard disk - most likely due to
failure of the disk.  In other words, you're screwed.
Actually since you say it brings up the Windows startup page, the boot
sector and the first few tracks are readable and then it can't find the
drive.  Still, not good.  Sorry, no better solution at this time.
