First thing to check is to see if sound is muted. Very common on Dell laptop's. Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar (lower right corner of screen) and see if the box to mute is checked. If it is remove the check mark and try the sound now. The other thing is to see if the driver is properly loaded for your sound chip on the motherboard. Go to the Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager and see if the sound device has a yellow exclamation point or a red X. If so then the driver for the sound is not loaded. There are several ways to handle, but while you are in the device page click on the sound device if there and there will be an option to remove the driver or update the driver or install the driver. Select install the driver to see if it is on your system. If it is then the system will find it and install it for you. Last to get the driver go here. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_1150&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

I just read on another website that the program "Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite" is the problem. It gets installed along with Wordperfect and it needs to be un-installed. I had the same problem with the 2 pop-ups and then when I tried to put in a cd with pictures on it, my computer crashed. I have just un-installed the Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite on my computer and the messages are gone and I can run cd's again!!
first try uninstalling the dvd drive
go to start/control panel/system/hardware/device manager
look for dvd/cd-rom drives
right click dvd - uninstall
reboot afterwards so winxp will re-install drivers
if this does not work, go to toshiba.com
look for downloads for your dvd/cd drives
just make sure you have the right model so the file you download will be exact and correct
