Recently while on the internet my computer spontaneously crashed, turned blue, memory dump and then wouldn't even turn on. CPU was making a grinding noise. Opened it up, purged the power, took out a few cards, put things back in and then the computer started up again but getting a floppy diskette seek failure message. When I ignore it, my cpu loads up normally. What is wrong and/or what can I do about this!

restart your system and press delete to enter the bios mode and change the boot options set 1st boot device as cd/DVD rom and 2nd boot device as HDD if you are not using floppy drive just disable it. After finishing the changes press f10 to save the changes and exit
You simply can not uninstall an OS (operating system), you may have to Format the hard drive itself. If you are upgrading the OS to a version that uses NTFS, like windows xp or higher, a format is suggested. If you have a boot diskette, you can do it that way. If not you can create on using windows 98, but you will need an old floppy diskette and a drive to boot. If you have a newer OS on a CD, simply insert into the computer and follow the on-screen instructions. If you have a boot diskette(floppy), turn off your computer. Insert the disk and turn on the computer. Let it do its thing, once the diskette loads small programs, you will be able to format the HDD(hard drive). you will see something like this after its done loading...
type in format c: shown like this...
A message will pop up, saying: WARNING! ALL DATA ON NON-REMOVABLE DISK DRIVE C: WILL BE LOST! Proceed with fromat? (y/n)
If you are sure you want to erase everything, type in Y. The computer will now format (may take awhile) and will be ready for a new operating system!
FInd a computer with a floppy-drive and a USB port.
Insert the diskette, and copy all the files to a USB memory-stick connected into the USB--port.
Move the USB memory-stick to your laptop, and connect it.
Access the device-drivers on that device.
This is called the Blue Screen of Death or BSoD, this usually happen if u plug in or insert any new hardware. If u have recently added any new hardware, try it out, after plugging off the newly inserted hardware.
Enter the setup, and there will be a setting in there somewhere called "Halt On" and if you set that to "No Errors" the computer should boot fine.
This works with Dell computers.
