Hello,
I'm having a problem with my computer startup. When the computer boots it stops saying FDC error, press F1 to continue. I get that it means Floppy Disc Controller error, but the funny thing is I don't even have a floppy disc drive. I have a feeling that this might be some deeper problem. Does anyone know what might be causing this?
Thanks.

Yes- FDC = Floppy Drive Controller. The error might just be a result of your not having a floppy drive attached to the motherboard controller. Since there is no floppy drive installed, try going into your system's BIOS setup and disabling the floppy-related settings. Just disabling the "Floppy seek on bootup" option (if present) might be enough.

If the above doesn't work, you could have a hardware (motherboard) problem :sad:

The other colleague replies the best solution but let me add you some caution. Do you have plugged a floopy data cable in the mother board while you don't have a floppy drive? Remove it if you have plugged it.
