    When I first log into my computer I have to press f1 to continue becuase it says diskette drive 0 seek failure. Im guessing that diskette means its a floppy drive but my computer doesnt have a floppy disk drive. lol wtf is going on?

    "Hello all,

    The error is telling you that your "floppy" drive is not being seen at boot.

    I will assume that most of you don't have a floppy drive. So, you need to restart the system and boot in the the BIOS setup screen. Turn off the floppy disk in startup and check that your hard drive is seen correctly. This most commonly happens when the motherboard battery is removed, or has died. Or when a reset was done within the setup BIOS screen."~Thereal-dbk4297
