Hi Guys,
I have Win 7 installed on my dual core pc,with 160 Hdd.Any time i put on the pc i get the error message'Diskette drive o seek failure,Press f1 to continue or f2 to enter set up'
Although it works alright after i press f1,i just want the message to disappear.
Any help please.

Have you got a floppy disc in the floppy disc drive?
If you haven't you need to press F2 and change Boot sequence.Select to boot from Hardrive

Look for something related to "boot order", and just follow the instructions to make it boot in the following order:

1: CD/DVD Drive
2: Hard Disk
3: Anything else

That should cure the problem. It appears it's looking for a (non-existent) floppy drive.

I suspect the system is looking for a floppy drive which isn't present and that you need to go into "Setup" (the BIOS) by pressing F2 and then disable floppy disk support.

I think you guys are all correct,but it has a card reader.It used to show in my computer as four removable drives with their assigned letters when i had xp on it.After installing win 7 it show as floppy drive in my computer.
Is a dual core pc.ram 1g,160hdd,win 7.
i have already set the boot order to 1.hardd 3.removable so i dont know why.
Any suggestions please?

"i have already set the boot order to 1.hardd 3.removable so i dont know why."
