Hi,Just went to remove my floppy disc drive as I dont intend using it any longer.Removed drive okay I just unpluged the cables from the rear of the drive and slid it out through the fron,Left the cbles alone just anchored them safely away from any fans etc. Now when i start up pc I get a black screen asking me to press F1 to continue or F8 to do another task.How can i stop this from happening,gone into device manager and disbled the floppy drive and the drive dont show up under my compter,Its just the screen with the F1 etc does this mean going into registry or somethig if so can i have help explaing what to do please. Running windows xp pro fully updated. Thanks,dail.
You should be able to go into the BIOS and find your drives listed, then select the A drive and select none\disabled (whatever option you get). That should stop it finding and looking for something that isn't there and hopefully cure your problem.
Hi Guys,Thanks for all the prompt replies,I took a gamble went into Bios settings and woked fine.I did a google to find my way around the Bios method. Thankyou all once again,Dont know what sort of mess we would be in if it wasn't for your help on these forums.Well done once again many thanks.daiol.A Big Ta from wales.
