Emergency help please!!

When I tried to start up PC this morning it got as far as "Verifing pool data" and on that screen I got the message "Non sytem disk error replace and strike any key when ready" I tried striking a key, but just got the same message repeated.
What do I do now please?
Can it be anything to do with the fact I just downloaded new version of AVG virus scanner on my previous PC session

I run Win XP home

I just checked floppy drive there was a disk in there, my son must be the culprit. Alls fine now

You can avoid this happening again if you set the BIOS for the first boot device to be the hard drive. You can easily set it back again if you ever need to boot from the floppy drive.
