Re - Floppy disc Drive -


Recommended Posts

Is it OK to fully uncheck your Floppy disc drive from BIOS ?? - Mine keeps making a noise like it wants to start up - ;)

I can't remember the last time I used a floppy , but it is making a "groaning" :( type noise as if it is about to start processing -

The "groaning" may not be the best way to bescribe it (more a slow ticking) -

XP SP3 - Desktop -

Those noises are pretty normal for a floppy drive, but yes, you can disable it in your BIOS if you never use it, and should you ever need it in an emergency (like if you need to boot from a disc but you only have a floppy or a non-bootable copy of XP and you need to boot a Win98 boot floppy to run the XP disc) you can re-enable the floppy drive.
