Re: Diskette Drive 0 Seek Failure

Hello all,

The error is telling you that your "floppy" drive is not being seen at boot.

I will assume that most of you don't have a floppy drive. So, you need to restart the system and boot in the the BIOS setup screen. Turn off the floppy disk in startup and check that your hard drive is seen correctly. This most commonly happens when the motherboard battery is removed, or has died. Or when a reset was done within the setup BIOS screen.

If you need any more help, you will need to supply your model number and further information.
