Your computer is looking for a Floppy diskette drive. If you entered the BIOS ( setup menu ) and selected default settings to be applied it selects the first boot-table drive as the floppy diskette drive. You have to disable the floppy drive if you don't have one.
maybe the floppy disk drive is defective or maybe the IDE cable is deffective, or maybe the cable on the floppy drive is not properly inserted , try to replace IDE cable of the floppy drive if still the symptoms happens replace the floppy drive
The "floppy" disk-drive (3.5-inch diskette) on your computer is broken.
Press F1 to ignore the error, and to boot from your C: drive.
Or, press F2 to enter BIOS SETUP, and then navigate through those "setup" screens to tell the computer to "disable floppy seek", or change the setting from "3.5 1.44Mb drive" to "none".
Or, take the computer to a technician, and buy a replacement disk-drive, and get it installed.
Hi, Restart the computer and when you see the Dell logo.Tap on the F2 key a couple of times. You would enter the system setup.
1. Use your down arrow key on the keyboard and select the option Drives 2. Hit enter to expand the same 3. using the down arrow key again select diskette drive 4. Tap the right arrow key to switch it off.
Save the same changes by tapping on the ESC key on the top left of the keyboard.
PS. In case you have a floppy drive on the computer check if the drive is empty.
Does the PC have a floppy drive? If it doesn't It appears that your BIOS (Basic PC setup) thinks that there is one! I think that pressing f2 on boot will bring you into the BIOS setup.
In there, see can you locate any reference to 3.5 inch floppy and amend it to the setting which suits the config of your PC.
Please take care as to what other settings you change in the BIOS
