    it has to do with drives, most likely a hard drive, but it depends on the context.

    Edit----------

    Ok, I guess that wasn't very helpfull....so here goes.

    You need to give more information, becuase this message could mean several different things- some not too bad, and others very, very bad.

    -Did you install any new hardware recently? Or mess around with your bios?

    Most of the time, this message pops up when booting (turning on your computer), when the machine can not find the boot software (OS, OS Shell). This can mean many things. Hopefull, you just changed the order of boot devices or removed your C drive from the boot list. This is easily fixed through BIOS. Your PC may be trying to boot off the A, CD, DVD, or slave drive. In this case, there is no OS on these (unless you have a recovery disk in an optical drive).

    On the bad side, you could have a fault on your C drive. You should run check-disk.

    In the worst case senario, you may have accidentally erased, reformmated, or fatally corrupted your drive. So when you computer turns on, it can't find the "boot volume". Hopefully it is not this last one, because you have lost your drive and everything on it.....that is, or course, unless you are willing to pay a recovery company lots of money to save your personal files.
