Did you try resetting the battery or the jumper? There isn't a cable plugged in with no floppy drive at the other end, is there.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

Just to clarify, there is NOTHING in your boot order for a floppy right?

You got HDD, then CD, then CD/HDD right? (or something along those lines)

It could be possible that its set having to search for a floppy, no matter what. Like a failsafe sort of thing.....

Have you tried resetting the bios, then putting your settings back?

Either pull out the battery or short the jumper that says 'clear_CMOS' for a minute or two.

Then put your settings the way you want them, and you should be good to go..

(thats a BIG should btw!!)

Yeah, clear the CMOS, then it will also be reset to defaults.

Then change it back to the way you had it, save, and it SHOULD be fine.

EIther that or your battery might be faulty/not seated correctly/drained(unlikely, but possible)

In your BIOS, if you have a "Standard CMOS Features" make sure DRIVE A is set to NONE. Also, (I personally do this) set HALT On: to No Errors.

Make sure the Floppy is not in the boot order & SEEK FLOPPY: is set to DISABLE....you will find these in the Advance Options.

Try what Lou Bot said. Because, even though you don't have it in the boot order, it will still search for a floppy unless you disable that.
