“Spotlight will be available as soon as the contents of your computer have been indexed.” - What does it mean?

When I try to use search to find something in my computer, I get the message: “Spotlight will be available as soon as the contents of your computer have been indexed.” - I have been getting this message for several days, even though I have restarted the computer several times.

Could this be the backup system? I have an external HD with "Time Machine"

I have a desktop Mac, OS X 10.6.8

I worry it is getting too old and I have to get a new one soon. I try to hold out as long as possible.

Thanks for any advice.
