Floppy Drive problem?
I have a HP 775e that is about two years old. About six months ago my floppy drive started making a noise. Here is the description on what happens.
1. No noise at start-up. No noise when using the CD-Drive(f), no noise when using the DVD drive.
2. When I insert a floppy into the drive I get "no noise" or when using it to view a floppy disk or format a floppy.
3. However, when I remove the floppy disk and click on Microsoft Internet Explorer, there is this grinding noise. The noise may last as long as fifteen seconds or less. Also when I shut-down the PC after using a floppy.
4. This is very annoying, but it causes no other problems to any other functions of the PC.
I have none full recovery, full restore a number of times, but it still does the noise when having used a floppy disk.
Is there a chance I may need a new floppy drive? If so, would my PC (HP) require a certain drive, or just any type?
