If it says "no boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed" and no BIOS changes were made, then your boot device has errors and will continue to degenerate.

That having been said, if your daughter is "not very forthcoming," then she may very well have messed with the BIOS settings. I cannot help you with family issues. Sorry.
