  • Nobody, and apparently not even you, knows what your bios settings were on this system before you mucked around. ;)

    But, you can reset them to the factory default settings using the procedures here:

    If you don't have a floppy drive installed and start getting a "floppy seek error" after resetting bios to factory default settings, run bios setup and look for the option to disable the floppy drive controller, save the change and exit setup
