View Full Version : Floppy Drive Randomly Activates

The floppy drive in my Compaq Presario 4550 will randomly at times start chattering away whether there is a disk inserted or not. This stops the system completely and lasts for approximately 45 seconds and is very noisy if no disk happens to be in it.
Someone said it may be MacAfee, which I have since replaced with Norton Virus checker, checking the floppy drive. I removed MacAfee but it still does it. I've had it back to Compaq to no avail.
