Computer not starting up

  1. I'm having a problem with my computer that just started a couple days ago. The comp froze up on me while i was on it and now it wont startup. Everytime i go to startup the computer it goes to a black screen and says
    "Diskette Drive 0 seek Failure" F1 to continue F2 enter setup
    when i press F1 it continues with the startup but eventually stops working and just stays at a black screen then a few minutes go by and it does everything again. I have tried the startup repair but that doesnt fix it so was just wondering if maybe i could get any suggestions why it's saying the Diskette Drive Failure.

    Thank You.

    Hit F2 and enter setup...Change the Halt on Error setting to Halt on no errors, and give it another shot.

    No Error Setting

    I Hit F2 and went to the setup but there is no Error Setting on the menu i get.

    Ok go back into the setup again.. The option may just say Halt On: ---- Look for something like that and set it to None. Its usually under the tab Main in the bios. You may have to look around for it a bit...
