Windows 7: Computer Freezes at BIOS error Screen

Windows 7 64bit
Computer Freezes at BIOS error Screen

I was playing FFXIV when it started freezing and lagging, which isn't too uncommon in and of itself however, when I tried to restart the game it continued to give me log in errors. Attempting to fix this I decided to restart my computer but when it went to start back up it gave me a no boot device error and then the screen in the picture I attached to this post. I've tried pressing F1 F2 F8 dlt and tab but no matter what I press and when it flashes straight back to this screen. I've had issues before where I was easily able to find multiple threads and answers from other people having the same issue but so far I haven't found anything that resembles the problem I'm having and therefore have no clue as to how to fix it. Please help!

Try resetting the BIOS.

Power down the computer.
Remove the power cord.
Open the case and remove the CMOS battery.
Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to drain the capacitors.
Put the CMOS battery back in.
Plug in the power cord.
Power up.

You should get a message about corrupter CMOS, press F1 to continue, F2 to enter Setup.
Press F2.

Set date/time/time zone/boot devices and boot priority.
Save and exit, see if it boots.
