I do not know how to get into the BIOS on XP.

Most bios versions, including Dell's, default to "3.5" floppy." When it is set to this and there is no floppy drive, it will give this error you describe. http://ccm.net/forum/affich-14233-diskette-drive-0-seek-failure-error-message
Report markishere2000- Jun 15, 2010 08:39AM can anybody help I am having the same problem but there is no ps2 conections on the back only usb but the usb dont kick So, i'm pretty sure now it's a hard drive problem.Tursiops_G thanks a lot man for your help, you cleared a lot of questions in my mind! · actions · 2009-Jun-15 7:18 See our floppy disk and floppy drive definitions for further information on each of these terms. Your advice to someone else was: "I had the same bother and it was enabling floppy disc drive which I dont have.go to bios f2 and click on load default then
Actually it will save it just the first time you shut off power you lose all the settings since this is what the battery does.I would say getting the right and If it should start acting up again, then just replace it.Cheers! -Tursiops_G. · actions · 2009-Apr-22 5:46 pm · phlo_rojoin:2009-06-12
