i recieved my floppy drive today from newegg....so after i put it in, i went in to CMOS and enable the device....
but then right after i save settings and exit, the computer just went all black....there is no signal going to the monitor.....

did you try taking out the floppy drive and restarting to see if that is actually the problem?

by "CMOS" do you mean Bios?...the bios should detect the floppy drive automatically, you shouldnt have to detect it manually.

what exactly do you mean by "took off the battery to clear CMOS"? did you change the jumpers to clear CMOS or did you just, take the power supply out and stuck it back in?...im not following you

yeah i did tried taking out the floppy i just put in....nothing change....
and i meant to say bios....
i took the small battery on the mobo out.....it clear all the setting in the bios that was set before to default.....thats what the instruction says....it din say anything about jumper....
and after that it boot up again ok...so i went into bios again and reset all the time and date and stuff.....
after i save and exit....the system restart but nothing came up.....
so what wring with it??
did i screw the whole thing?

Try setting your bios to default settings or failsafe settings,this will let you be ok more than likely.You are setting something wrong,so give this a try.
