    From the web, this message appears to be related to a program that is running at startup called, TOSCDSPD.exe.

    "CD/DVD Drive Acoustic Silencer
    From CastleCopsWiki
    Jump to: navigation, search
    Software supplied by Toshiba to acoustically silence noise vibration from the laptop's CD player due to poorly balanced CD's. The program slows the CD player to reduce the vibration generated noise.

    The program may be run all the time, or started when needed. The program runs automatically at startup in the default installation from Toshiba"

    More info on it

    I'm not sure what would cause the message, but the program is considered non essential.

    You can stop it from running by doing
    Start > Run > MSCONFIG
    and UNselecting the entry for that app.
    (most likely looks like C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\TOSCDSPD\TOSCDSPD.EXE)

    Reboot. You will get a warning screen about making the change. Select the Don't Show Me Again option.
