The selection for the floppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.
You can enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key.

SOURCE: Floppy Diskette Seek Failure on boot up

Hello there:
This is a setting in the bios , so what you are going to have to do
is boot into bios and under the boot section and check to see if the floppy drive is a option that is part of the boot sequense if it is change it so that is not part of the boot sequense than go under the periphial section and check to see if it is showing up there as a removable device if so change it or disable it all together since you do not have a floppy drive ok
and this should take care of he problem
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Floppy diskette seek failure


The floppy disk or drive is damaged, or if your trying to boot your computer and you have a floppy in the drive that is not bootable. It will try and boot from floppy first then cd then hard drive usually but floppy's are stupid and only return an error and then stops. Remove the floppy disk and boot

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.
