Hello,

I just recently removed the floppy disk drive from my system because it was not functioning correctly. I was just wondering how to remove the driver and other keys. Every time I reboot the profile for the drive is still there. How do I completely remove all remnants of this drive?

I havent done this in a while but if you go into your control panel there will be an option to remove hardware components. You should go to that and if that doesnt work I would just go to my drivers folder and delete the drivers but try the control panel thing first and get a second opinion on deleting the drivers from your folder.

Enter the BIOS and disable the entry for 1.44mb FDD Change it to Not Installed (or whatever the wording is on your BIOS)
This option is normally found on the 1st page of the BIOS settings where you can set the clock and drives etc. often called Standard BIOS Features
