Check you havn't moved the graphics card.
go into the bios nd set up as default.

Do you mean it would not read the floppy start disc. Go to Setup when you start your computer to see what the boot order is for your drives, Also select auto detect drives. the boot order you want should be floppy, CDrom, HHD. and for a new start disc click here
