Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimension E310 and when I boot the unit is gives me a black and white screen stating "Floppy Diskette Seek Failure". When I try to go into the set up screen it just reboots. What could this be?
F2 Scroll down to "Drives" and open the menu. choose "Diskette Drive" and turn it "Off".

Check the floppy drive first, if there is a floppy drive (A drive ), there could be a flopy disk already in the drive that the machine is trying to boot from...if you can get to the setup screen, the menu option "use last known good configuration" may work.

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
