View Full Version : a: drive identification on booting up

On booting up my HP Pavilion (Win 98) my floppy disc drive is intermittently identified as 'Removeable disc' instead of '3? Floppy'. This causes a non-workable floppy disc drive. Any ideas?

Make sure it is set up properly in your bios.If you are unsure what the setting is supposed to be, try visiting the HP website.

For most HP Pavalova's to get into the BIOS it is F1 then select the second option down, (advanced from memory)then make sure that you have 3 1/2 ' selected.

Most HP stuff does not tell you how to enter the BIOS
