Windows 3.11 hangs accessing 3"1/2 diskette drives
Posted on 1997-03-04
It is a couple of weeks that I'm experiencing a strange and annoying
problem. When I try to access a 3"1/2 diskette from any of my two diskette
units (A: or B:), Windows 3.11 hangs, that is: a blak screen appear with
the white underscore cursore blinking on the left top corner.
No way to go back to Windows desktop. Even CAD does not work. I have to
RESET my system (a Pentium 120 with Ami BIOS 1.02). This does NOT occur
always, but 80% of time. Does not matter WHICH is the program that tries to
access files on diskettes. Even the File Manager.
I have ABSOLUTELY NO problem to do that from PC-DOS 7, and HW tests on
diskette units look OK. So, it should be a Window-related software problem.
