My dell dimension 9200 is booting and then giving me a Floppy Diskette Seek Failure message. What is causing this to appear and not boot windows 7?


Hi. You computer seems to be booting up using the floppy disk and your floppy disk drive might not be connected properly, not working or not even there. Press F2 to run the setup utility and disable the floppy seek in the bios. It will most likely be in the "Advanced CMOS setup" area, or the 2nd screen depending on your bios. look for "Seek floppy drive at boot?" or, "Disable floppy seek at boot?" or something like that. When you find it, make sure it's not enabled for the seek. Save the change on exiting. :-)

I got this massig: smart failure predicted on hard disk : Toshiba MK50555GSX-(S1) Warning: Immediately beck up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure my be imminent. press F1 to cntinue.


Hi,

This is clearly an indication of a hard drive failure. Though your system may still be booting up it is highly likely that it will stop very soon. Back up your files to a different file location (e.g. external hard drive, online backup) before it happens. Replace the hard drive and seek computer's manufacturer if system is still under warranty, otherwise simple buy a replacement hd from staples or best buy and seek technical assistance if you can't replace it on your own. Hope this helps!

Hard disk failure


What exactly does the error say?

The safest thing to do is to stop powering up the hard drive. Get a new hard drive and adapter cable to pull the data off the old hard drive (secondary) and onto the new hard drive (primary) after the new hard drive has been formatted.

If you don't feel you can safely do that, you may want to seek the assistance of someone who can or a company that provides hard drive recovery services.

A hard disk failure error typically indicates the hard drive has (or is about to) fail and become useless.

Cant start my sons dell e520 even from the recovery disk. Keeps looping back to black screen and message floppy diskette seek failure.


Have you tried to put a disk in the floppy drive when it starts up?
It probably had a disk in before last close down, and is looking for it now when you start up.
