Default Dell Dimension 3000-Diskette Seek failure

This is one of two PC's that I have which are basically sitting collecting dust.
Boots fine, pops up diskette error
'Diskette drive 0 seek failure', before it said "no boot device", I checked the IDE cables going to and from the motherboard, seated the power module cable and rebooted to this.

It's been awhile since this pc's been opened, I can't tell the original error and I don't have a pc in which I can swap the hard drive to see if it's bad. Any suggestions?
Update: Someone else is running into the same problem mentioned above, attempting to factory restore and the computer boots with the same error followed by "no boot device", am I looking at purchasing a floppy drive and formatting a disc to boot from? Thanks
