My floppy drive does not work when windows 95 is loaded. It just causes a crash when it is accessed. It works perfectly in DOS mode. I have reinstalled win95 several times (doesn't help). HELP!!! This is "drive"ing me mad!! It also works in Windows DOS mode and Windows safe-mode. In the bootlog.txt file, it states that es_di.pdr has failed to initialise. Looking at device manager, some hard-disk controllers have a "!" next to them, apparently not working correctly.

Since it works in dos, the hardware sounds like its connected and OK..(cable connected tight etc..)

Other area may be a configuration conflict, and or memory address conffilict. To resolve this:
Go to my computer, control panel, system, device manager, and then check the  floppy disk controlers, check the properties for conflicts, and resolve them if found, also try deleting the controler, and rebooting win 95..it should find new hardware (floppy controler), and set it up again, or you can do that thorugh add new hardware..

Hard Disk controlers with a !..

That's the problem, look at them carefully, when you reloaded win95, it loaded the controler again, thus you now have 2, 3 or more loaded, thus the memory address problem..

Go through them, and remove them 1 by 1 until only 1 is left, and then reboot..This should get the situation resolved..

If not then look at the controler itself, as it may have gone bad..
