I keep getting the Windows alert that says "Please insert disc into drive" I get this over and over and everything hangs up unless I click "continue, try again or cancel". Most of the time I have to click a dozen times to make it go away (as it immediately pops right back up again). I get this message during start up, while surfing etc. I can see getting this while using a program without a disc inserted, but I get it all the time. This just recently began doing this and I have no idea what I have done to cause it. I've looked in the startup folder and I don't see anything that might be causing this.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Well, its most likely asking for your windows disk so it can repair/overwrite corrupted files. But i dont ever remeber any instace where the operating system asked for a disk without any commands given.

Give it a try.

I also just tried to disable all startup programs to no avail, still getting the insert disc warning.
