Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer
Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop. My computer won't start, when I push the power button, it won't turn blue. After I cleared the CMOS, I found in CMOS settings that Drive A is set to 1.44M 3.5' diskette, so I reset it to "none", then everything seems fine. But after I turned it off last night and tried to turn it on this morning, it happened again, I have to reset Drive A to "none"(I did save the settings, apparently the computer can't keep it). My question is how do I save the setting of Drive A so that it won't change back to 1.55M, 3.5' ? Thanks a lot! Quinn

That is a POST (Power On Self Test) error and happens before the operating system loads, in other words it isn't a Windows error but a hardware error.
Does the pc boot successfully after the error? Does the diskette drive work properly, can you read and copy files to it? In all likelihood the diskette drive might be "kaput". If you have a hardware diagnostic utility for the pc run it and see what it reports.
If the drive is bad just replace it with a new one, they're inexpensive
and easy to replace.
