Windows-No Disk message

On rebooting, after the desktop has appeared, there is a long pause and then
I get the message:

Windows--No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert.

The message can eventually be killed by clicking on 'Continue' a few times.
If I put a CD into the CD Drive and click on 'Try again' the message
disappears immediately. For some mysterious reason it seems to be looking for
a disk in the CD drive.

Boot into BIOS and check if the first boot device is set for CD-ROM. If yes,
change it to hard drive.

The key to access BIOS should be F1, F10 or Del.

It could also be that something is starting upon bootup that wants a disk.
You might want to try clean boot troubleshooting to determine what is
starting when you start the computer, and should it be asking for a disk?
This could be an issue with spyware, as well. Have a look at these links:
