My PC is not functioning properly at all. is is slow, and full of error messages and warnings!
I can't use my start-up floppy because i get no response from my floppy. I can hear it spinning,
but it fails to boot-up. I also recive a "device not ready" warning when I try to use my cd-rom.
I can't load the drivers for my printer either. PLEASE HELP ME!!! I need to have full use of my
computer for business purposes, but I can't trust it until i get these bugs worked out.

on boot-up i get a " floppy disk(s) fail....(40)..."

after start-up Drive A is inaccesable and message says "Drive A is using MS-DOS
capability mode file system.

after windows start-up i recieve " windows sockets initialization fail, POP3TRAP error.

What causes the individual windows headers, usually BLUE, to turn BLACK?

under my start-up menu, the 'start-up file' shows up as EMPTY.

I can connect to the internet, but i cannot use anything, no browser response. DNS error.

warning window says "This program can only be runed at or above 256 color mode. program
terminated." from unknown source. <_<
