    That sounds like a windows error.

    When turning on the macbook right after the screen turns on, press and hold "Option" and if the screen lets you select OSX, do that.

    That happened to me during a botched attempt to install Windows through Boot Camp. I held down the Option key, selected OS X, deleted the Boot Camp partition and it went away. It can also happen if you create a Boot Camp partition and don't install Windows in it.

    the problem is that i do not have the windows installed on it.
