My friend needs help

My friend needs help with his computer. He gets this message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". His computer specifications, according to him are:
Conroe Presler FSB1066 PCI express
Graphics Card
ATI Radeon X1550
2 gB RAM
Operating System
Windows XP Service Pack 3..
Pentium 4

If there is some PC spec's that is missing, let me know and I'll ask him. :)
