A Hitch - Computer illness/death

I have run into a hitch.  It seems that my main computer may be dead.

I keep getting a message "Reboot and select Proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key".

I don't think I know where those initial discs are any more and as I left the computer on to eat and came back to that message suspect the problem is something nasty.

Any suggestions (my current intentions are Saturday=computer shop to see if it can temporarily be fixed.)

Fortunately only I think there's only one piece of writing on there that hasn't been saved (and some ebooks).

What I do not have at the moment is access to my email.  My laptop doesn't have an email program and I don't have an email address that doesn't need it.
