Could you please provide some additional information about the hardware you are asking about.
Like model. maybe how old it is, how long have you had it, did it work before, and quit?
Thank you, some additional information will be helpful for us.

Type password and I have replaced the battery in my computer.The message I am receiving on the screen is Diskette drive 0 seek failure.


For the diskette drive 0 seek failure, does the computer skip past this error without difficulty ? If it does, then you may ignore it. It is caused probably by your replacing the battery having reset the BIOS which is thinking now it should find a floppy disk to boot from. If you haven't a floppy disk, or have floppy disk drive you will get this message. I do, but I ignore it. When you power up, you could try entering the BIOS setup, by pressing for example, the esc, F1, F2 or F8 keys - for your model I don't know which, you may find out from the internet, your manuals, or the Dell website/help or support - repetitively before the computer starts,
( from Dell support - "You can enter the system BIOS or Setup on a Dell PC by pressing F2 at the Dell loading screen").and somewhere the BIOS setup there should be the boot order change this to CD first (no CD inserted unless it is bootable), then USB if available (no media USB inserted, some USB devices are ok), the HDD. You should not set HDD first because this will give you big problems if it goes wrong and you need to boot from somewhere else. Put floppy disk after HDD and the message will disappear.

I don't know about the password issue. I suggest you contact Dell support on this topic.

When I click on documents, music, pictures, computer and more I get a "System call failed" message.


Hello maribeautybu,

You can Open Task manager-CTRL-ALT-DEL and kill the explorer.exe process. This will cause your desktop to go blank. Then do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and run Task Manager then new task - type in explorer.exe.

Thank You,

My computer a dell when turned on has error message no signal from PC just changed memory and it started that


Check the compatibility of the memory - using the wrong type of memory can cause this problem. Insert your old memory then use a tool such as http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx to tell you what type of memory you should use.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX 260 that will not boot. I get two beeps and a message to press F1 to retry or F2 for setup. Also, back panel diagnostic lights are A.B,C green, D amber. Any ideas?


Try to set it to boot first in cdrom in bios setting then place a bootable cd in cd drive that will run in DOS mode. If this boots up with a command prompt. Then your hard drive has a fault, could be a corrupt files or missing files.

Post comment if it does not help so we can device another solution.
