xguy Posted June 29, 2005 Posted June 29, 2005 Ok so I almost finished my new system still waiting on the dvd drive so I can't obviously install OS until then , but while I'm waiting I thought I would run some memtest. I can boot , get into bios , save and exit no problem, but it seems like it's skipping the floppy. what happens is, she boots post info no problem the goes into the raid press F10 , then the next screen comes up the one with a bunch of info where normally at the buttom it should say "verifying DMA" but that is missing, then it hangs there for a few second and reboot again. I tried different diskettes: memtest86 (tested on other machine and works fine bootdisk tested on other machine as well. I tried different floppy connector I tried "boot up floppy seek" and it does make noise at that stage when booting. and in all cases it doesn't seem to look for the floppy, pass the 3 post screens. Specs: pc power &cooling 850 ssi DFI lanparty UT sli-dr X2 4400 2x512 OCZ pc4000gold VX floppy mitsumi 8 in 1 (card reader) 2x WD raptor 74gb 2x Evga 7800gtx (SLI switched on) waiting on DVD rom I searched the whole forum and nothing, any help would be greatly appreciated.
