Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
When I press "F1" it reboots with no problem. When I press "F2," it has a lot of settings. Not knowing the best settings, I chose default, and it still doesn't boot right.
Simply press F2 and the screen probably a blue color with lots of settings you are talking about is BIOS setup. In this setup find a tab named "Boot setting" or something similar and go inside this menu. You will find devices and look for floppy drive and set is "Disabled". Save and exit. Error will disappear.

Since the hard drive was wiped, it's unlikely you will get the function keys to operate exactly as they did from the manufacturer without performing a re-install using Dell's proprietary installation discs.
If you want the pc to work exactly as it did before the discs were wiped, your best option is to order a set of backup discs directly from Dell.
The Dell online backup disc request form can be found at the following location. You will see a "Request Backup Disc" button toward the bottom of the page.
Before you order the discs, you will need to call Dell's customer support number at 1-866-234-9297 to have the ownership information changed.

Sounds like someone may have left a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive. Check to be sure there isn't a floppy in the drive. Also, when in setup, it's the boot order that you'll want to change.

I think you should press F2 to go to the setup page.
There, you should change the order of your boot device.
set the first boot device to hard disk
set the second boot device to cd rom
and the third to floppy.
follow the instructions and click save and continue
