1. the software you are using is not compatible with your operating system and is looking for a disk drive.
If you have a recent operating system then this software will not work.
It needs to see a floppy drive.

My computer keeps reading diskette 0 seek failure on a black screen and wont start how do I fix this issue. I have a dell desktop computer


You might get this error if there is a non-bootable diskette in the drive. Remove it if so and you might have a normal star-up.

If there is no diskette in the drive, you may have a hard drive failure where the computer can't start normally and is switching to try the floppy.

Here are two things to check. If it is a Dell Laptop, most likely the F2 key will get you into set up before any OS loads. If it is not F2, just watch the screen right after you power the device on, you will see insturctions that say "Press F(something) to enter setup".

Once in set up, scroll down to the "Drives" section. Highlight the floppy drive and make sure that it is set to "off". Regardless of the fact that the laptop has no physical floppy drive, chance are there is still an option under set up. It may be set to something like "internal". Dell actually uses an "internal" floppy setting when imaging their machines.

If you are using Drive Scrubber from a CD, which I presume you are, you can also check the boot order while in setup. Once you highlight it, you will be able to see the order the computer uses to try and boot from. I would move the CD drive up to the top and you should boot from the disk before it even tries anything else.

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.

Boot up screen says "diskette drive 0 seek failure"


Press F2 look through the menus and remove / disable 3.5 floppy drives.

Formatting problems.


Remove any 3.5" diskette from the diskette-drive in the computer.

Insert the Recovery Disk into the CD-ROM device.

Restart your computer, and *FORCE* it to *FIRST* try to "boot" from the CD-ROM drive, rather than trying to boot from the 3.5" diskette or from your C: drive.

If there is a diskette in the diskette drive remove it. It's a bad diskette.
If no diskette in the drive the drive may be bad. Till you can replace it disable the diskette drive in BIOS.
