Add floppy drive


What model Lenovo ??...

Because PC makers no longer include floppy drives in computers, many new PC users have never used one.
Nevertheless, there are many occasions when a floppy drive can be the most convenient form of file storage and transfer for small files.
On most Lenovo ThinkCentre PCs, a floppy drive is an add-on option and most packages do not include the device unless you specifically request it.
If you purchased a ThinkCentre PC without a floppy drive, you can add one to the system yourself and save some money vs. taking the system to a shop.

Shut down the ThinkCentre computer.
Disconnect the AC power cord and other peripherals.
Move the computer to a sturdy work surface.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards

Use your fingers to push inward on the two buttons on either side of the computer.
Lift upward on the front edge of the cover to open it.
Open the cover until it stands at a 90-degree angle to the computer chassis.

Disconnect the ribbon cable from the optical drive.
Lift up on the rear edge of the drive bay tray until you can see the rear of the CD/DVD drive.
Orient the new floppy drive so that the diskette slot faces down.
Connect the floppy drive cable to the motherboard.
Slide the floppy drive part way into the floppy drive slot.
While holding the floppy drive, connect the other end of the cable to the diskette drive.
Lock the ZIF connector on the cable, then slide the drive all the way into the slot.
Slide the blue drive lock downward to secure the floppy drive in the slot tray.
Close the cover and reconnect all cables.
Power on the computer.
The ThinkCentre BIOS detects the new floppy drive automatically and configures it as the "A:\" drive on your computer.

My xbox 360 disk tray will not open it wont even open a little some one help me


have you tried to open the drive using the xbox dashboard, when you press the eject button does the power light flash? is there any noises coming from the drive when you try to eject.

It could be a faulty drive and the only way to get into the drive is by opening the console up and this could void your warranty. if your hearing noises (motor spinning) from the drive it could be the drive belt has snapped (like a small elastic band) you could have dirt in the gears and cogs jamming the drive. so you wouldnt hear noises (except the disc spinning if there is a disc in it).
if the power light flashes when you press eject more than likely it is the drive belt or dirt in gears.

My floppy drive makes a rathling sound when turn on


well fistly floppy are old technology and they naturally make a sound when accessing files. however the sound get noisy and irritating when you try to access floppy disks that have developed bad sectors (physical damaged, viral damage, dusty etc)

if your floppy drive makes noise even with brand new disks then it would have accummulated dusts on its magnetic reading head the solution is using cleaning floppies which are becoming less available in shops these days (but are still there). Or if you up to practicall thing open and clean up the read/write head manually. dont worry the thing is close to what the radio cassette head look-alike.

Laptop keeps beeping and not turning on


I think you may mean the Hard Disk light not floppy, although, if you have a floppy disc drive, check there's no floppy disc in it as it will stop the boot up. But if it's not the floppy, and the hard disc drive light stays on, possibly the hard drive is faulty, maybe damaged sectors. The other maybe is a possible memory fault, although the beep codes can only be identified if you know the motherboard make. Your rating are important.
