Well heres a website that will help if you look at what might have caused it.
NTLDR is missing
Have you recently changed anything with your computer? Like new HDD or changed your boot order in the bios?

My Dimmension 4500 did that. Tried new HDD. Then the diagnostic lights went out. contacted dell and they told me the motherboard went out. I also had a problem with a bad CDR in my B110. It wouldn't do anything until I removed the CDR.

EDIT: the hard drive in the 4500 wasn't bad. It still works.
