What are you trying to do? Have you posted in the correct forum. What distro are you using?

It would help someone to help you if you gave some information.
As asked above, which distribution of Linux are you using?
Did you install it yourself?
Is it a new install or have you been using it for some time?
At what point do you get this error message?
Are you trying to boot an installed system?
Are you trying to install a Linux distribution?

Your kids have screwed the bios boot order and have network boot selected as first in boot order.

Your boot order since you did not post what Acer Aspire model laptop should look like

1. Diskette Drive
2. IDE CD-ROM Device
3. Hard-Disk Drive C
4. Integrated NIC

It sounds like they moved option 4 above option 3 in boot order.
