Anyone seen this before:
Floppy Disk(s) Fail (40)
CMOS Checksum Error Defaults Loaded
No floppy drive exists on the PC.
Got this error after the graphics card and motherboard were replaced.
Each time I hit F2 to enter BIOS Setup.
I then go into Integrated Peripherals and change Drive A to "None".
Then I change First Boot Device to "Hard Drive".
I disable all others as for now I only want to boot from the hard drive.
I then hit F10 to save and exit.
It may / may not save these settings for 1 or 2 reboots and then the above error comes up again.
Motherboard is keeping the correct time etc - so I assume the battery is OK???
A Dell Tech rang me to confirm if a previous problem I had before was now fixed.
I put this question to her and she brushed it off saying just hit F1 and ignore it!
Eerrrmmmm, NO, I paid €1,537 for this machine and I want it fixed!
The same day I could not wait on the phone anyway to resolve it...
Has anyone seen this before / know the root cause / know the problem fix?
Thanks in advance,
