floppy drive problem

  Daxsimus 23:03 22 Oct 2004

Hi, Everytime I start my computer and when I bring back the screen after the screen saver has been on the floppy drive goes crazy searching for a disk. How can I stop this happening? It also happens when the computer refreshes the screen. Driving me crazy.
Any help please.

Yes mine does the same as if it is trying to read a disk that is not in there, at random times. Cannot find a reason. You have to learn to ignore it like me.

Have settled for puuting a disk in seems to have stop it making all the noise. So a bit better. Might find the answer some day.

Try disabling Boot Up Floppy Seek in BIOS.

Go into power options properties, and where it says Turn Off Hard disks, change this option to never....T
