I purchased a foxconn 755/760A01 motherboard which I have installed and everything is hooked up correctly that I know of but when I boot up the system it is in a loop and restarts itself. I am pretty computer literate but this one has me stumped. there is also a message saying that the floppy drive failed. andy help would be much appreciated.

Go into the BIOS settings, Usually press the Delete button during the initial boot, and check the settings for the HD setup. Check your MB manual for BIOS access, and correct setup for your hard drive. Possible it's looking for a RAID array and not finding that.Or some similar issue. Also see that the HD is plugged into the correct socket. With SATA sometime, some sockets are ONLY for RAID drives.
Normally the only way to be sure is to use a CPU that you know works in another computer and test it in the motherboard that is not working. Also make sure that everything is connected to the motherboard properly and you can try disconnecting everything except CPU, RAM, video, and power to see if the computer boots like that.
Make sure you have your card installed correctly in your PCIe slot, it should hook in. You also have to hook up power supply. This card requires minimum 450 watt power supply and 600 watt power supply if using crossfire and dual mode. If your system meets these requirements, and you have card seated properly and hooked to power supply. You may have to enter your bios and dedicate the PCIe slot. I'm guessing the system will boot without card.
Goto my computer and right click, choose properties and then go into device manager, find display adapters and click the "+" sign to the left, it should bring your graphics driver that you are using at the moment, right click on it and choose update driver, use the internet option to automatically find the driver online, it takes a few minutes so be patient and it should find the correct driver for your graphics.
Well to start, you do not give enough info ,for example what was you doing to the pc when this happened,was you installing the o/s, however try the following.
Ensure that all connections to the board are in, check ram is seated fully into its slot,check that the cpu & fan are installed correctly,infact remove everything and start again,maybe you will need to re-install your operating system, if infact you had already installed it .
Without more detailed information, I really can't help you decipher that code... Since you don't know which specific Foxconn motherboard you're working with, it might be best if you contact Alienware Customer Support for detailed information:
Could be one of three things, either your motherboard is faulty (check the capacitors for bulging) and is not getting the power to the processor, the processor itself has faulted, or it's simply a flat cmos battery, as this can cause none starters.
