|Turn off your PC, wait a few minutes (2-5), and then try again to restart to see if you can boot up normally.
|Turn off the PC, disconnect the power, and remove the PC cover. Ground yourself before you place your hands inside the case.
|Locate the back of the floppy drive inside the case, and check all connections running to and from it. Be sure they are securely fitted. If the system seems unusually warm, try leaving the system off with the cover off for an hour or more to let the system cool, then retry.|
|Replace the cover on the PC, restore the power connection, and restart. See if you can boot without the error message.|
|If the problem continues, reboot the machine, choosing this time to go into Setup (usually done by pressing the Delete key or a combination of keys to access – check your boot screen for instructions). In Setup, look up drive configuration, and disable the Boot from A or Floppy Drive option. Then save your changes and exit Setup, and see if the boot will continue normally.|
|Obtain a working floppy drive and replace the problem drive with it. You should then be able to boot normally, but do check the physical state of the ribbon cable connecting to the back of the floppy drive. If this is worn or damaged, you need to replace it.
