External Diskette Drive Check

Do the following to isolate the problem to a controller, driver, or diskette. A write-enabled, diagnostic diskette is required.

Do the following to select the test device. See "System Diagnostic Diskette" on page 54 for details.

  1. Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the PQA program (see "System Diagnostic Diskette" on page 54).
  2. Go to the diagnostic Diskette Drive in the test items.
  3. Press 0 in the test items.
  4. Follow the instructions in the message window.

If an error occurs with the internal diskette drive, first turn off the power and then reconnect the diskette connector to the system board.

If the error still remains:

  1. Reconnect the external diskette drive/CD-ROM module.
  2. Replace the external diskette drive/CD-ROM module.
  3. Replace the system board.
