sounds like you plugged in a flash drive.
Yes, I plugged in a sandisk cruzer u3.

I got this message when I plugged in a sandisk cruzer u3 flash drive. The message is repeated every time I open the laptop even I haven't plugged in the flash drive.
This is the way some flash drives work. Here is a description of how to solve this problem.
These U3 drives are far more troublesome than they're worth. My suggestion would be to remove the U3 function.
Please post back and let me know if you need more help.
