When I hit my "caps lock" key on keyboard, I get the words "Previous Track" in flourescent green in the lower right of my screen.

At the same time, an error box comes up that says:

"There is no CD in the drive. Please insert an audio CD, VCD or DVD and try again".

:tazz: Please!

(I have other keyboard issues as well that I will post in a new thread)
