Windows - no disc error window

  totley 12:42 16 Mar 2006

When I turn my computer on and it has finished setting up (Windows XP) an error box appears say

Windows - no disc
Please insert a disc

I have no idea what this is and I have to press cancel 10-12 times before this box will disappear and then I can use my computer normally. This does not seem to be affecting the computer but is really annoying when first turning on the computer.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening as I am in the dark.

Thank you in advance of any helpful information.

Sometimes the system files (those required to run Windows properly) can become corrupted. Here's how to run a check on your system files:

• Click Start; Run.
• In the Run box, type cmd.exe to open the command prompt window.
• At the prompt, type sfc.exe /scannow
• Press ENTER. If Windows finds problems with the system files, you will be prompted to insert your Windows XP installation CD to restore the files.

If no problems are found and the scan finishes, type exit and press ENTER.
