Hi Bitters,

Not sure what version of Windows you are running or your computer specs but here are a couple of things you might want to check out:


1: With the computer turned off make sure the floppy cables are snug and secure to the motherboard.

2: Your CMOS/BIOS battery may be old and out of juice,  a good indicator would be that your system clock has the wrong time and or date.

3: Go into BIOS and see if that floppy drive is recognized,  while in BIOS go to the System tab and look at your Boot Sequence,  you should be able to disable it or look for something that says Do not halt on system errors.

4:  Make sure there is no floppy disc in that floppy drive.

5:  I have deleted your duplicate post,  you only need this one :wink:

But the questions has always been, what do I do about my local channels?
