    After I startoff my computer from fresh and I go to Run via Start>Run and I insert a disk into the floppy drive A://, and I try opening the drive folder, I get an error message saying " A:// is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error." Then when I click OK and I try opening the folder again I get no error message. I only get the error message when I open the folder for the first time after the computer has been restarted. The second time I try without restarting the computer, works.

    Why do I get the error message in the first place????????:eek:

    This might apply:

    Are you running SP1? If not, you should check to see if there is a BIOS update which corrects this, or some setting you can change through the CMOS Setup utility to modify the PromoteLimit Value your system uses as the CPU moves into a deeper idle state. You might have to disable that setting completely before you can resolve this, but we won't know that until you research it.

    Or, you might simply choose to live with it...

    Never mind about this. It probably just was a hardware malfunction. I completely turned off the power to the computer, then I restarted it and now I DON'T get the problem anymore!
