Since i've used my password reset disk when my os starts, my desktop start showing and then my floopy drive start grinding and stop, what's up that?
Anybody know what could be?
Thanks !

Sounds like it is seeing if a disk is inserted. In the bios set the cd rom to boot first & see if that stops it. That's if you don't use boot floopies very often.

Yes but it is not hard. When you boot up look to the bottom left of the screen. When you see DEL hit delete. This will take you into the bios. Be very careful in there. Use the enter, Esc & arrow keys to navigate. Look for the option where you can change the boot order & make the cd rom boot first. Don't worry if you are not sure you can exit bios by choosing 'exit without saving'. That will leave things as they now are.
