Look in your BIOS at bootup in the Standard CMOS settings to make sure that it actually shows the correct A: drive (use the page up and page down buttons on the keyboard to put the correct type in there...it may be seeing a 720KB size drive when in fact you have in all probability a 1.44MB drive).  If it is correct there, then check the I/O settings also in your BIOS to make sure that it has the correct setting there.

Belgarison,
Will the computer boot from the floppy?

Is the error random, or is the drive completely disabled?

If disabled, I suggest you double-check the cable connections, or substitute a known-good one.

If random, please tell us the operating system in use, and a little more about the other hardware in your system.

Regards,
Ralph
