    When I tried to add a new floppy driver to my gateway computer, the computer is telling me that I already have a 3 1/2 floppy drive. No matter what I do, I keep getting the same thing. Even when I uninstal the driver and I turn the computer off and on again, I get the message that a new hardware has been found, the 3 1/2 floppy that physically does not exist in my computer.
    Also the computer does recognize my new 3 1/2 driver.
    Can anybody help?

Driver for Teac FD-505 Combo Floppy Drive?


You may have to enable 'A' drive through the bios. Depending on the bios, you need to hit F1 or F2 or F10 at initial start up. You can hit all three at once and get into the bios. Then navigate your way through the bios to find where to enable and disable drives.

Hi i have connected a floppy disk drive to my Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server but the pc cant find it. i know that the drive forks cos if i insert the ide cables the other way the disk drive led turns on but...


Not sure what "the drive forks" actually means.

The floppy drive usually connects via a dedicated connector on the motherboard by a ribbon cable similar to the IDE cables but physically smaller and of course to the power supply. If the drive, the cable and the motherboard is ok it should appear in the bios list ready to be enabled and added to the boot order.

If the floppy drive doesn't appear in the list you should refer to the motherboard manual as there might be some jumpers to reset or perhaps it is only suitable for a usb floppy drive.

Take the number from the motherboard and do an internet search which should direct you to a place where you can download a manual which will contain all the information you need.

Hi,

The CMOS/BIOS battery has died and needs replacing.

The battery is located on the motherboard inside the case of the computer.

To replace the battery you'll have to open the case up and replace the battery. It looks like this >>>

Once you have replaced this battery and restarted your computer you will need to access the BIOS to set the date, time and also tell the computers BIOS that the floppy drive is not there and to set the boot order of the computer.

Once you have done all this you should not get that message again for a good few years.

Press F2 to enter the system setup. Someone or something (Bad Motherboard battery most likely) has reset the BIOS defaults, which includes the Floppy diskette drive controller to be ON. Set Diskette Drive to NONE, then under integrated Devices, set diskette controller to off, save settings and reboot
(ALT + B)

if issue re-occurs then the watch battery on motherboard is bad and needs to be replaced

I have installed a new floppy hard drive but my pc does not recognise it. how do i activate it? and why is the green light always on even without a floppy inside it?


Get into your bios and enable the "A" drive in the bios if you haven't already. It has to show up in the bios for it to show up in the device manager in windows. Start at the bios and work up to the device manager and reinstall floppy drivers if needed.

Adding a hard drive to a PC


You need to set the little jumpers at the rear of the hard drive and the cd rom drive. Set the hard drive as Master and the cd rom as Slave. Both devices should then be recognized.

A new hard drive


The sata connector was probably disabled in the BIOS to prevent you from getting a missing drive error on startup before this was installed. Press F2 at the Dell Splash screen to enter BIOS setup, come down to Drives and change the setting for the sata connector to ON. When you reboot go back into the BIOS setup and it should report the Drive ID and capacity.

Computer won't come on


Does this computer have on board video? You mention that you added a new video card. Did you remove an old video card?

Do you see anything at all on the monitor at anytime while booting?

If it has onboard video have you checked the BIOS to insure that it is enabled?
