Computer help for morons -- I'm getting a mysterious reboot error. Can someone help?

Asked by Seelix (14842points) June 22nd, 2014

Hey all,

I’ve decided to ask my loverly fellow Jellies for help rather than try to decipher the results I got Googling my problem. I’m not a computer moron per se, but I don’t really know what I’m doing when it comes to fixing errors.

I was watching Netflix when my computer suddenly stopped doing what it was doing and now shows the following error:

Reboot and select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

Like I mentioned, I did Google the problem, but I’m having a really hard time understanding the advice I’ve found because I’m not super-techy and I just don’t get it.

Is anyone able to help me by giving me instructions in plain English (or by pointing me to a link that does)?

Much appreciated!
