You need to find system informaton and drives in the bios. You have to tell the computer what kind of drive you have. When you are at the right place you will see a drop down menu choosing your drive type. Newer computers do not support floppies and have memory card readers instead. If this is the case you will have to get a USB floppy drive.

Win95 driver for this dive so that it is recognised as 5.25 and NOT 3.5 on Floppy icon


Just change your (BIOS setup), from floppy 3.5 to 5.25 1.2MB.
Cold boot your computer and tap key F12, once every second until you see a startup selection, choice BIOS Setup. You can find it from there.

Diskette drive 1 seek failure


Hello,

It sounds like the 3.5" floppy drive either got disconnected (if you were inside the computer) or it went bad.

I the easiest fix (if you don't use the floppy drive) is to disable the floppy drive in the BIO's.

I don't have the exact steps for this particular model Dell BIO's but here are some basic pointers.

When the computer first boots up you should see an option to enter SETUP (probably by hitting F2, or DELETE or F10, etc). Once in the BIO's look for the floppy disk setting and simply set it to NONE or DISABLE (what ever option they offer).

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

Dell latitude c510 c610 driver download


Normal 0

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

I put a c610 bios update in my dell c510 latitude laptop


Go back to the Dell website and enter your computer model number and then go to the support tab and then find the bois file list and see if there is any earlier bios files that you could reflash the bios with an older bios version. Or, if you saved your old bios to a file before you updated to the newer bios you could reflash the bios using that one. You did save your old bios didn't you? Does your computer boot to the OS ok or not. I really don't have enough information from you to really help any further. Sorry, Dennis

ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard supports 1TB SATA2 HDD?


1) Grab a blank floppy, and a computer running Windows with a floppy drive.
2) Download C18E1013.zip (A7N8X-E Deluxe Latest BIOS, from Asus), AWDFLASH (Also from Asus), the latest Silicon Image SATARAID BIOS (from Silicon Image), and CBROM 2.15 (Alternative CBROM 2.15 download link)
3) Extract all the contents of everything into an easily accessible folder, preferably something like C:\bios
4) Make sure you have no other folders in this new folder. Everything must be within C:\bios, so for example there shouldn't be anything in C:\bios\BIO-003112\

5) Open a command prompt (Start -> Run, type "cmd" and hit enter, without the quotes)
6) Navigate to the folder you just created using the command "cd" (For example, if you used the folder I suggested above, you would type "cd C:\bios", without the quotes, and hit enter)
7) Now type "cbrom215 c18e1013.bin /pci 4284.bin" without quotes, and hit enter. This will take the latest BIOS for your motherboard, and merge the new SATARAID BIOS into it.
8) To make sure everything went correctly, type "cbrom215 c18e1013.bin /D". This will show a list of the modules in the BIOS. At the bottom should be a line with PCI(A), and should have "4284.bin" at the right end of that line.

9) Now put the blank floppy into the computer with the floppy drive.
10) Open My Computer, right click on the floppy drive (probably A:), and select "Format"
11) The formatting window should pop up. Check the box labeled "Create an MS-DOS startup disc" (which should disable all the other options), and click Start.
12) Click OK and close the format utility when the process completes.
13) Copy the modified BIOS file c18e1013.bin and the file AWDFLASH.EXE to the floppy disc (simply a drag and drop).

14) Close everything on the computer with the A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard and reboot it. Make sure the computer is set to boot to the floppy drive, and that you have put the floppy in the drive.
15) Type the command "awdflash c18e1013.bin /py /sn" once you get to the "A:" prompt.
16) Press enter to confirm that you wish to overwrite the current BIOS.
17) Wait.
18) Once it says it is complete, remove the floppy, press F1 (as instructed), then reboot the machine (which should happen automatically once you press F1). Now the computer should detect the 1TB drive upon booting.

Lost boot up floppy


Two things may have happened:

The hard drive has failed, so it is trying to boot from the next available drive (floppy)

or

The BIOS battery went dead, and has reset to factory defaults and it trying to boot from the floppy drive.

If you can get into the bios ( hold F1+ F2+ CTRL+ ALT+ ESC after you turn it on), look for anything related to "boot" and change the boot drive order. If you find it, be sure to save the settings, then restart.

**note**, alot of the old computers have a very primative BIOS, and you may not be able to change the boot order.

Let me know if this gets you into the bios, as they changed "how" to do it over the years.
