    Maybe the floppy is corrupt or you have the wrong/too many files on it ?

    Its giving you an error message for a reason.
    "some thing to do with...." isnt exactly helping.

    Give us the exact command and exact error message, then we might be able to help you

    You wouldnt go to the Doctors and say "there is somthing wrong with me" - you would tell him whats wrong.

    This is where the manual comes in handy, but its something like alt+f1 or alt+f2 or f3 at post.

    or

    You can go into the bios and in there, its usually under tools. You can put the ROM file on a floppy or usb stick, or even on your c:\ drive and ez flash should list them.

    Dont forget to clear the cmos after the update

    Usually a jumper on the motherboard, bridging 2 pins, move it across to its other position and leave it for around 30s, and switch it back, you should be successfully reset

    Bios refreshing?

    Are you trying to flash the bios to a later version?

    if yes, do this..

    save your Bios ROM file onto a clean floppy disk.

    restart and enter the bios.

    at this point, make sure that the floppy disk is pushed into the drive.

    in the tools section of the bios (top right, main page usually) look for EZ flash and run that.

    The EZ flash menu will show on the screen and it should list your floppy drive on the left.

    choose the floppy drive and on the right of the screen, it should show the contents of the drive (your new bios ROM file).

    Highlight the bios ROM file and hit enter and follow the on screen instructions from there.

    if successful, it will restart and the jobs a good un.

    you can then power off and reset the cmos (see your manual for this)
