Windows 7: Booting Issue: "Reboot and Select proper Boot device"

Booting Issue: "Reboot and Select proper Boot device"

I haven't been on my computer for a week, I was away from home and once I turned it on i get some message saying, Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.

This happens every time I turn on the PC. I don't get to the Windows login screen or anything.
I have an AMD Motherboard, Raedon HD Graphic Card and run Windows 7 Ultimate.

Help, please?
