Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop ?

Diskette drive 1 seek failure is shown on when the computer is turned on primary hard disk drive 1 not found secondary hard disk drive 1 not found.


Answers :

Hmmmm That is strange.
If all three of these error messages started at the same time it probably means that something has seriously gone wrong with the Input Output controller(s) on your motherboard.

Have you moved house recently? Sometimes cables can fall off inside the computer when you move them although it is unlikely that your floppy and hard drive cables would both fall off.

When the computer starts go into the bios settings the button you need to press normally flashes up on the screen. Like F2 or Del or something like that. If the date and time is wrong the battery on *********** board may have gone flat. Not a big deal to change that.

Otherwise you may be stuck.
