    I get this error everytime i start my PC. Please help me how to get rid of it.
    It gives me 2 options F1 to continue or DEL for entering setup.
    Is there some way through which i can disable my floppy drive by entering BIOS Setup so that is stops prompting me at the startup.

    Best thing to do is to take the cables off the floppy so the motherboard doesn't see it and that it is failing. Or just check the connections and most likely the cable is just loose. reseat it cables and it should then give no error.
