You should be able to find one in any electronics store (Staples, etc.), online stores, ebay, pretty much anywhere hardware is sold. I believ the 5150 came with a PATA drive but there are SATA ports on most boards.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi, When I try to start my Dimemsion 5150C in Windows XP computer, I received one of the following error messages "Floppy diskette seek failure Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup...


The "floppy" disk-drive (3.5-inch diskette) on your computer is broken.
Press F1 to ignore the error, and to boot from your C: drive.
Or, press F2 to enter BIOS SETUP, and then navigate through those "setup" screens to tell the computer to "disable floppy seek", or change the setting from "3.5 1.44Mb drive" to "none".
Or, take the computer to a technician, and buy a replacement disk-drive, and get it installed.

Try running that program on the computer with the problem. If this does not fix the issue please let me know what devices you are connecting through. Ex. Directly into cable modem or through a router.
