    My Floppy Disk Drive comes on every 3 minutes or so with nothing in it.
    It works OK in every other aspect.
    I can stop it by inserting a blank Disk,but would rather locate the fault !
    Windows 98 is my OS.

    Hi, Mary and welcome to TSG :)

    I never came across this as a " problem " but is there a chance somebody may be playing a joke on you ?
    The reason I say this is that there is a small program ( I forget the name ) that will force \ tell your floppy and or cd rom to run.

    Sorry I cant come up with anything else, it was just a thought, stick around and somebody may have a better answer :)
