Go into the BIOS and disable the FDD (floppy disk drive) controller. See if that fixes it for now. If that works, I'd recommend you then update your BIOS and see if it will work with the FDD controller enabled after updating the BIOS.

Make sure you update to the latest BIOS. That may fix your problem. And if that doesn't fix your problem, disable floppy disk detection in the BIOS.

are you overclocked at all. and also the floppy error has nothing to do with your comp crashing. my comp does it to if i forget to disable the floppy drive and dont use everest. its not a good program and it dosent like P4s. use orthos.
