View Full Version : Floppy disk fail on bootup

I keep getting an error with the above message. Error (40).
The only thing that has changed is that I installed a single 256 RAM chip last week.
Also ever since, I get intermittent problems with the mouse driver not loading, although the first time this happened I re-installed the appropriate MS intellimouse driver.

Hi, As regards the floppy fail problem, it is possible that you disturbed the floppy cable when you fitted new ram.
Remove the case again and check that the floppy cable is properly pushed home in both the motherboard socket and at the floppy drive. Also check that the floppy power cable is fitted properly.
Cheers.
