Dell Vostro 200 Boot Up issues

I have re-installed MS Vista Business on this unit. Upon boot up I get the following error;

Diskette drive 0 seek failure

Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter SETUP

If I hit F1 it continues the boot process and everything appears to be fine, is there anything I can do to eliminate this screen upon bootup?

I agree with Bdugas....who uses Floppy drives at this point anyway?  In the Bios of the Dell computer during initial boot or restart press F2 repeatedly to get into the BIOs and disable the Floppy disk, that should solve your problem.

Depending upon your Bios and version it might not be F2 to get into the Bios it might be <DEL> key. During a restart just watch the screen, whatever it says to enter "Setup" select that key.

you can :
-reset the bios by removing AC cord and BIOS battery for a minute- then reconnect and test
-check or replace the bios battery, it should read 3 V
-update the bios
-replace the motherboard, if all these fail
