if the above doesn't correct the problem then maybe your floppy drive is faulty.

floppy 3.5" 1.4mb
choose it and hit enter and you should be able to disable the floppy drive.
Yes, I know there is no floppy drive, but message is your motherboard telling you that it is not there....somehow, (did you perhaps hit default settings or flash your bios), floppy seek was turned on.
If there is no setting, look for a HALT ON ALL ERRORS setting and change it to keyboard only

right if that's the case then you have to make sure that the device is disabled in the BIOS.
you might have to take it off the boot list.
the machine maybe searching the floppy for a bootable media.
did you have this problem before? and what has happened since it last worked?

When you come to this screen, hit "f2" to go into the bios/cmos setup
arrow over to "Advanced"
then down to "Integrated peripherals"
go down to "Drive A" and switch it to "none"
your all set.

In IBM PC Compatible computers, the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is a de facto standard defining a firmware interface.
The BIOS software is built into the PC, and is the first code run by a PC when powered on ('boot firmware'). When the PC starts up, the first job for the BIOS is to initialize and identify system devices such as the video display card, keyboard and mouse, hard disk, CD/DVD drive and other hardware. The BIOS then locates software held on a peripheral device (designated as a 'boot device'), such as a hard disk or a CD, and loads and executes that software, giving it control of the PC. This process is known as booting, or booting up, which is short for bootstrapping.
BIOS software is stored on a non-volatile ROM chip built into the system on the mother board. The BIOS software is specifically designed to work with the particular type of system in question, including having a knowledge of the workings of various devices that make up the complementary chipset of the system. In modern computer systems, the BIOS chip's contents can be rewritten allowing BIOS software to be upgraded.
A BIOS will also have a user interface (or UI for short). Typically this is a menu system accessed by pressing a certain key on the keyboard when the PC starts.
Tom's Hardware: BIOS for Beginners
Most PCs briefly display a message describing how you can enter "setup," the program where BIOS settings are adjusted. You're allowed only a few moments to press the required key before your operating system starts to load. To enter your BIOS, turn on the PC and hold down, or press repeatedly, the key required to enter setup. On most PCs this is the DEL key, the F1 key or the F2 key. If your PC will not enter setup using those keys and/or does not display the message described above when first turned on, you will need to refer to your documentation or contact your PC manufacturer for support.

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Please post more information as to your exact issue with any error messages you get as well as your system specs. This will help us to assist you more efficiently.
Thank you for your cooperation.
