I think it just means one of your drives ex. hard drive, cd rom, etc... have an error. Not a floppy A: drive(you said you don't have). unless it says A: drive error (with the colon after the A). anyways does the error give anymore info other than "A drive error press f4 to continue", if so, what is the exact error, like it might say what drive has the error. Also, you can try running Windows CheckDisk utility, click the link below to goto a page with instructions on running checkdisk.

This error is usually caused by turning on the Drive A setting and/or the floppy controller in the BIOS when there is no floppy drive present.
Easy to fix - go into BIOS (usually by resetting and pressing either F1, F2, F10 or Del) and see out Drive A settings (usually under Standard CMOS Features) or the Floppy Controller (usually under Integrated Peripherials).
