Default graphics and mobo problem

ok i'll start with the mobo

every time i load up my pc i get a floppy drive (40) error

i haven't got a floppy drive and never had one, is there a way to stop it happening, the mobo is a asus A7N8X-X

now for the graphics card

when i load up the game guild wars it loads up then goes blank and a minute later it gose back to the desktop and tells me i either need to update the driver or i need to update the direct x

it has the latest driver and it has direct x 9c on it

the graphics card is a radeon 9600 32mb ram agp

i am building a new pc so i can not put any new parts in to this (one of them where the new pc is taking the money)

cpu - amd sempron 2.1ghz
hdd - 120gb ide (dont know the rpm or cache)
gpu - radeon 9600 32mb ram agp
