Dear Sir I have a motherboard M925G V9.1 and the floppy disc and the green light that indicate activity remain on all time and I thing may be some configuration trouble Best Regards Ricardo Gatti


First go into BIOS Setup by tapping the DEL key as you power on your PC. (On some computers it's the F1, F2 or F10 key) On the first screen (usually titled System Information) be sure that your floppy dive is listed as Drive A: 1.44 MB 3.5" drive. It, probably is, so just exit out of bios setup and power off your computer. Next check and make sure that the 36 pin ribbon cable to your floppy drive is conected properly. The red mark on the side of the cable MUST be aligned with pin 1 on both the motherboard and drive end of the cable. The motherboard connector is usually labelled as to which end is pin 1, - if the drive connector is not labelled, look to se if the plastic guide on the top-center of the connector is lined up with the plastic guide on the drive. (If the cable is reversed, it wont hurt anyhing, the drive simply wont't work. If this doesn;t work, ty installing the drive in another PC to see whether or not the drive is bad.

Hopefully you've got either a floppy or cd in the computer tray. Make sure it's empty then reboot. Also make sure you don't have any usb drives plugged in.

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD
