U R having problems with your hard drive.  Make sure there isn't a floppy disk in the drive bay (if your laptop has one) and restart the computer.  Next, enter BIOS by pressing Del or F1 or F5 or F8 (or all of them) when the laptop is booting and look for a menu item called 'default settings' or something similar.  Select it and try booting again.  

Other than that, your laptop might need servicing.
