    start up the macine, press f2 when you see the DOS screen, go to the floppy disk, and diable it or remove it. save and restart the machine.



    did you by this machine or some one gave it to you?



    F12 is network startup. you need a network server to startup the machine.

On booting your PC, hold down F12... this will give you a list of devices from which the PC can boot. Make sure you have them in the correct order.... it will tell you how to move them up and down

1. CD-ROM optical drive
2. HDD hard drive

After this it doesn't matter the order.

If this doesn't sort out the problem, you may have to disable FDD (floppy disk boot)

Diskette Failure F1 to continue or F2 to run setup??


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.

Hi, When I try to start my Dimemsion 5150C in Windows XP computer, I received one of the following error messages "Floppy diskette seek failure Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup...


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.

ERREUR FDC FAILURE


FDC == Floppy Disk Controller

The FDC controls the 3.5-inch diskette drive.

Check that the drive is getting electrical power,
and that the ribbon-cable from the motherboard is connected to the drive.

Or, press F1 to enter BIOS SETUP, and select "disable" to block all usage of the 3.5-inch diskette-drive.

Diskette drive 0 seek failure


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
