Default Floppy disk :S

For some reason the last couple of days when i boot up I get the error "floppy disk(s) fail (40)". I have still been able to use the computer and I have been searching round the internet and many people say that if you reboot your computer and the time is messed up you need to replace the CMOS battery. But my time is perfect so i'm guessing I don't need to replace it. I also don't have a floppy disk drive which really confuses me. I have made it so the removable device priority is disabled and still nothing. :S Any help??

Cheers, James

By default it sets that FDD as present. It does not mean you have it, it just is set for it. In BIOS, you can press Enter on the FDD A drive and select none/disabled

I'm not sure. If it happens again, just note down what caused it. A crash, for example.
