Open the system up and on the PSU there will be a white label
It will give the
Make, Model and also the wattage on the PSU

Also if the BIOS doesn't have the floppy drive seek entry then according to the topic stettybet0 references you can look for the line that says
Halt on all errors
Change that to Halt only on keyboard
Save and exit.
The system should reboot and the problem should now be fixed with floppy drive.
I have informed Stettybet0 of the crash and await his reply.

Great pic...looks to be a 750 watt PSU.
Now we can see what everyone can come up with on their end.
Did you get back into the BIOS to check that floopy drive seek entry or the Halt on entry?

Ok there is a problem, in the BIOS there is "Halt on all errors" "Halt on all errors, except keyboard" "Halt on no errors" There is no Halt on keyboard :)

But I currently have Halt on all errors, except keyboard selected. I have tried running it multiple times with each of these selected.

I am running BIOS Revision 1.0.1 on a Dell XPS 630i, i don't know if that helps...

OK then that means we need to find the No Floppy Seek then
You will need to go through each section of the bios and go down each line till you can locate that line.
Once found then disable it...save and exit.
Since it has no entry for the keyboard only then there has to be the floppy drive seek entry somewhere.

Ok I looked around, and found nothing, the only thing that I can find is Loading the "diskette drive" which I have disabled.

Just to finish off one little aspect of this thread, the PSU looks more than sufficient to be powering the system.

Are you able to disable the floppy drive altogether? Does this computer eve have a floppy drive?

No there is no floppy drive in the computer what so ever. And the error just started coming up.

Ok well I was brave enough to start it in normal mode. And this "Found new hardware" came up. Over the past 2 days , while working with this problem I didnt think much of it. But it says it wants to install software for a PCI bridge device. And it wants me to insert a CD if the hardware came with one.

What is this??

This has to do with the MOBO chipset drivers.
Did you get a cd with your MOBO or with your system that says MOBO drivers?
When this asks for the cd then that is what it wants.
