Question about Dell Dimension 2300 PC Desktop
I'm trying to help my boyfriend fix his computer problem. When he start his desktop, he kept getting the error
INVALID BOOT DISKETTE
INSERT BOOT DISKETTE in A:
I went into the BIOS and remove the part where it says boot from floppy and set it to boot from hard drive, but this did not solve the problem. There is also a constant ticking noise coming from the desktop. Please help!
One reason you would get invalid boot disk, insert boot disk diskette into drive A: is when windows was installed there was a boot disk in drive A. Now that windows finished it wants the boot disk. Go to this link to fix this problem, scroll down to RESOLUTION and follow the instructions. Everything above explains how this happened.:
Take your time!
If you need further help just post it here & I'll get right on it.
