    Every time I start up the pc I get the most annoying pop-up,
    'Windows - no disk. There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive.'
    I would love to get rid of it as it takes several clicks to get rid of it.
    Any help gratefully appreciated.
    :)

    Some startup item is causing the problem, which you can use MSCONFIG to stop it.

    Select Start, Run, and type: MSCONFIG

    Click Ok and select the Startup tab. Then Uncheck non Microsoft and anti-virus items. Next reboot to test if the problem is elminated. It is a trial and error process, which can be undone by re-checking an item you unchecked if you find you needed it.

    Good huntig.
