Each time I boot up I receive a Window message "No Disk Found in Drive". This message stays on my screen until I either repeatedly cancel or close the window -- takes about 6 to 12 clicks to close. I noticed when I request a restart, this message flashes for a second on the screen as Windows shuts down with a "BONK" noise. I tried inserting a disk in my drive "A", and depressing retry and/or cancel but just makes a "BONK" noise and reaappears. I am running Windows XP Media Edition Version 2002, Service Pack 2, current on all updates. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi 56FordF100!

Go to START-->RUN and type msconfig. Click on the STARTUP tab and take screenshots of the items with checkmarks. If you can't fit them all in one screenshot, please scroll down the list and take another screenshot. You can then post these screenshots (saved as JPEGs) in a post in this topic.

Ok, we are going to uncheck all the items that really don't need to startup when your computer does. Uncheck the following:
  • tgcmd
  • surveysa
  • PartSeal
  • UpdReg
  • sunserver
  • qttask
  • regsvr32 /s mqrt
  • ehtray
  • eBayTBDaemon
  • AGRSMMSG
  • CitiVAN
  • msmsgs
  • Adobe Gamma Loader
  • Adobe Read Se...
  • Quicken Scheduled...
  • Screenshot Utlity
Click APPLY and OK and reboot your computer when it asks. Once booted up, check the box so it doesn't show the window that you are using selective startup each time you boot your computer.

Let me know how things are going.

Fenor, I followed your instructions and I no longer receive the "no disk" message. Now what actually did you do? I appreciate your help in resolving this problem -- it's been bugging me the last couple of weeks. Thanks again.

Basically I just had you remove programs that don't need to start up when your computer starts. They are programs that are useful, but they only need to be running when you use them, like the Adobe items, you only need adobe running when you view a PDF file, but you don't need to have that program running when you are not viewing a PDF file.
