Error when startup - Floppy disk?

  1. Hi, not sure under which topic this falls under but i guess it fits here.
    Everytime i boot my computer i get the following message:
    "Floppy diskette seek failure - Strike the f1 to continue, f2 to run the setup utility"

    It all started when i was mixing around in the setup menu and moved around the BIOS startup order. Of course i forgot the original order so i press the "Set to default" button and i get this message every single time I boot the computer.

    Worth mentioning is that i dont even got a Floppy disk.

    Tips?

    Press F2 next time
    Then locate Floppy and disable it (its probably on the first page)
    Then Save and Exit Bios Settings, which is just press F10 key
    Then restart
