    Error message : There is no disc in the drive

    Hi,

    My PC is running very very slow, l have tried numerous spyware programs and virus checkers but they have not detected anything.

    Attached is the error l am getting, which is:

    "There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a disc into drive"

    This occurs when the PC has finished booting up windows, and to keep clearing it and have to click on cancel all the time.

    ANy help on this matter would be much much appreciated.

    Regards

    Justin,
    Hello... Could be a few problems ...Lets tackle the DVD\CD player

    First thing is that these things CD\DVD's are always going bad , and sometimes doing strange things ... I have replaced both of mine .. Try to disconnect the DVD\CD RW by removing the cables (or cable) and re-booting ...This will eliminate other problems ... If the error message is gone ...plug it back and will go from there... Regards Fred

    Check your startup programs using MSConfig, WhatsinStartup, or Autoruns and disable all of them. If the error goes away, use a process of elimination to determine the startup program that is causing the problem.

    Give us more info:

    Make and model computer you have
    It's approximate age
    Type of install disk; Company OEM disk, OEM image disk, OEM partition, image partition, or genuine MS XP disk.

    How is your computer slow:
    Slow to start up
    Slow to shut down
    Slow to start common programs
    Give us specifics/details

    The Event Viewer may provide details into potential issues;
    You can access the event viewer by typing "eventvwr.msc" into the run box, without the quotes.
    Look in the general admin section as a first start for "catch all" errors & warnings.

    Download and run Autoruns to see the programs scheduled to be run. Open Services and see if the scheduler Service and the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service are running.
