Sounds like a floppy drive error, does it have a floppy drive? If not, go into the BIOS and tell it there isn't one.

If there is, then check the power and IDE connection inside

You enter the BIOS before Windows starts.

As you computer first starts up you may get a message (for a few seconds) saying something like "Press delete to enter BIOS".

Computers do vary so it is not always delete, maybe another key. You have to press it quickly because once Windows starts to load it is too late.

Once in the BIOS you can find the place where you specifit Diskette drive and say there is not one (does differ depending what BIOS program you have).

Exit BIOS, saving changes, and then try again.

If you have not been n the BIOS before it can be a bit confusing so dont change anything you are not sure about. If you are not sure, when leaving BIOS just choose to save NO changes.

3.5"??? that would be the hard drive! For clarification do you mean the 1.44" floppy? (ooer missus)
