Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Dell Vostro 200. I just installed an older floppy drive, 3.5 inch, and thought I had everything connected and changed in setup, but I keep getting the massage"DISKETTE DRIVE 0 SEEK FAILURE". Then it says to press F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup. F1 keeps the boot process going and completes it. F2 goes back to the BootUP screen as if I need to correct something there. What do I do now? Mike

Mike,
At bootup press F2 to enter BIOS. There on the first page itself you would find option to set up the floppy drive. It is only when it is setup in the BIOS that the OS will start recognizing it.

How to create hotspot in dell vostro 200 ?


Deepa christopher
Unfortunately, you cannot make the computer a hotspot without a wireless card installed. You could add a wireless card and then search the internet on how to setup the computer as a hotspot with the OS installed on the computer.
Thank You,

Dell Vostro 200 will not connect to internet, what can I do?


check that the lan connection isn't disabled.
go into control panel>network connections.
I would disable it and then re-enable it, that sometimes works. if there is no lan connection showing then you need to download it onto a usb stick from the dell website and install it on the vostro. Product Support Dell US

Hi, When I try to start my Dimemsion 5150C in Windows XP computer, I received one of the following error messages "Floppy diskette seek failure Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup...


The "floppy" disk-drive (3.5-inch diskette) on your computer is broken.
Press F1 to ignore the error, and to boot from your C: drive.
Or, press F2 to enter BIOS SETUP, and then navigate through those "setup" screens to tell the computer to "disable floppy seek", or change the setting from "3.5 1.44Mb drive" to "none".
Or, take the computer to a technician, and buy a replacement disk-drive, and get it installed.

My Dell 531S will not boot past the BIOS (Dell logo) screen. At first I thought it was the hard drive, since it wasn't recognizing anything connected to SATA port 1. Since then I have purchased a new...


It seems like you have multiple problems:

1. DVD-ROM drive not accessing the disk

2. unable to "disable" the "floppy" drive in BIOS SETUP

3. not recognizing anything connected to SATA1 port

It's time to take your computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

Is your DELL computer still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty.

Or, maybe you should just remove the "new" disk-drive, the RAM, the DVD-drive, and then responsibly "recycle" the old computer, and purchase a brand-new system, repurposing the disk/RAM/DVD components.

My Dell Optiplex GX60 will not recognize the Hard drive I have just installed


Search the net for the answer. Dell have a irritating need to used a winchester drive utility to setup new drives. This is downloaded and installed onto a 3 1/2 inch floppy or if your lucky a cd.

Disc failure 0 press F1 to continue


He has accessed the bios and change the boot setting devices by enabling the floppy drive which you do not have.

Go Bios (F1 or F2) on first screen. and select load default setting

Also go to Boot Options and make sure 1st boot is the HDD not FDD or removable disk

Also in any menu mention of Floppy Disk make sure it is set to not installed or disabled.

keep me posted
