Answers :

It sounds like the boot menu :)
try to use the arrow keys to select Hard disk and press enter
it should boot as usual.
Probably you pressed some Fn key as soon as you turned on the PC without noticing it.
Go to setup and try F2 and see for boot device priority set hard disk on first place and others after it if it doesnt work after that ur hard disk might be giving u hard time
