Firts-make sure it's for the type of computer that you have. If you have an IBM make sure it's IBM compatible. If you have an Apple or MAC, make sure it's for use in that system. Floppy drives don't have any type of lasers in them. They're magnetic. If you can put another floppy in the drive and see what is on it but this one shows up as blank, there's most likely nothing on it, unless it's what's called a .zip file. You will not be able to see the individual files because they're compresses. Go to windows explorer and check the dricve after you put the floppy in. If you're using a MAC, I don't know what they call their file explorer but, it's tha same process. If it's blank, if you have the serial number, you might be able to register it and download it from Broderbund. They're a reputable company, They've been around for a long time.

I think that the laser of your floppy is not working, or have podwer. You must clean or exchange the unit

Floppy disk drive is just sitting humming,i'm trying to get some photos from it to my deskop


Probably having trouble reading the disk. Try another disk to make sure the drive didn't croak. Or you may have a corrupted disk. Floppy disks are notoriously unreliable. Hopefully you can put the pix on a different disk and try again.

If all you did was "select all" nothing is gonna happen. You have to move the files by drag and drop or "copy to." Computers are sophisticated idiots. You have to tell 'em what to do.

Can a failed bios update be recovered?


Do you have a floppy drive in this PC? From what I've found you you *may* be able to fix it, but it will more than likely require a floppy drive and a disk. Also, you would need another computer to be able to get the files prepared for the floppy disk, and that computer also would need a floppy drive.

In a nutshell, you would use the 2nd PC to make yourself a boot disk, then put the boot disk in the broke PC and turn it on. In theory, if all goes will, it will read the disk and restore the BIOS.
But you may have to change some files on the disk so it will boot to the BIOS recovery program.

If you do have a floppy drive in the dead PC, turn it on and see if the floppy drive light comes on at all. If it does, then the computer is trying to access the floppy drive, which may allow it to read a disk. You will stand a better chance of getting any recovery to work.

Why won't my computer boot?


Please check that you have nothing in your floppy drive if you have one, If the floppy drive has a disk in it remove it and this should fix your problem. Otherwise please refer to your computers manufacturer for further technical assistance. I hope this helps.

My Dell optiplex 210L boots up into a menu that says floppy seek failure strike f1 to continue f2 to run utility


You took your battery out and your computer lost all memory of what components it has installed. Hit F2 to get into the System Bios Setup. Look for your Disk drives and you will see your floopy disk drive there also. You should set the Floppy to Not Installed or None. It is probably set to Auto or 1.44.

This can be tow thing, one the drive is not receiving enough power from your USB port, try unplugging any addtional USB devices connected to the PC, if this doesn't work try a powered USB hub. Second the floppy disk is faulty or the drive itself is faulty.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes.
