Error mesage on bootup makes no sense

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
so i was having some issues with my comp this morning

power it on, first loading screen then black with a flashing dash in the corner but eh its done that before so i unplugged it and went to school

i get back today try again same thing
so i took out the battery took it downstairs and blew out all the dust
reassembled and now after the dell loading screen i get an error saying

floppy drive seek failure

which is really weird
because i have no frikking floppy drive installed

so could someone tell me what the heck is up with this, i need my computer back

i really really hope its nothing hardware related

F2 isn't always the key to get into BIOS..

Try the "delete" key (Not the backspace key)

But if it says Entering Setup, its probably the right key......

F2 should work, I searched for it.

Try pressing F2 again after it gives you the floppy error, check the screen for any other commands there may be another button you need to push to get pass that error.
