I have a dell xps 400 that has been in storage for a year. When i turned it on, i got an error message saying "floppy diskette failure" what does this mean?


Hi, this error occur when desktop pc's can't detect your floppy drive or floppy boot drive, you can fix it by going to bios setup settings. Just press DEL when you see the DELL LOGO and wait for it to enter bios settings, use ENTER key or ESC key to make changes on the settings, just DISABLE the FLOPPY Drive and change the first boot to HARD Drive where your operating system is located. When changes is done, be sure to save it before exiting. Hope it help, Thanks

Computer looking for a non-exsistant drive


Hi, the reason why you are getting the message is because the bios is set to seek the floppy disk and the setting is enabled and to resolve that you just need to disable the option on the bios

Entering the System Setup Program
  1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  2. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F2> immediately.

  3. If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft® Windows® desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again.
Set the boot order to boot to the hard drive

You need to change the boot order in the bios of the computer. It is also called the setup. When you turn the computer on, in the top right hand corner of your screen you will see F2-Setup F12-boot menu. Select F2 and when you get into the bios go through the options until you find "boot order" or just "boot". That will show what devices your computer will use, and in what order, to boot up. If the floppy is below the main hard drive then it won't work unless the hard drive is defective. Move the floppy to the top of the list, exit saving changes, and it will now check the floppy first.
