Invalid system disc, replace and strike any key

Hi, allthough there is no disc in the cd rom or floppy this message appears at startup and i cant get the pc to go any further, when i strike any key it just repeats the message???
Any suggestions most gratefully accepted,

Have you had a look to see if the IDE cable is loose?

During bootup, tap the F8 key every half second, hopefully a boot menu will show up. Choose last know good configuration.
