Dimension c521 computer gives a post error, floppy drive 0 error and keyboard error
The compute post tests the computer, insuring that it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process.
1 Short Beep, Normal POST, computer is okay. No problem. 2 Short Beep, POST error....floppy drive 0 error and keyboard error........This can happen because there is something wrong with your floppy drive, something is causing your computer not to detect it or that you simply don't have one.
Check your floppy cables and connections first to ensure that they are
connected properly, if they are then you may have a burned out
controller on your motherboard, a bad floppy cable or drive, or your
motherboard may be faulty. If you don't have one you can disable the
message in your computers BIOS. To get to the BIOS screen, during boot
up at the bottom of the screen it will say something like "press F2 for
setup" or something along those lines. That will take you to the BIOS
screen. In the settings there should be options like first boot device,
second boot device, and so on... change the one that say 3.5 floppy to
something else such as your CD rom.That will get rid of that message.
Keyboard error or no keyboard present shows up when your computer can't find your keyboard or there is something wrong with it. Replace with new keyboard. Thank you
