|It's unlikely you've damaged the floppy drive, they are fairly resilient and most have a key to only let you attach the cable one way anyway. So start by unplugging the floppy drive and changing the BIOS setting so that it doesn't seek the floppy - trying to troubleshoot two issues at the same time is always problematic. The 2/1 beep code doesn't match up to a standard error as far as I'm aware (reversed it would mean a graphics problem....). You say that the monitor was initially at fault, but this would not have produced a BIOS error, so the faults are still within the system. 2 beeps on their own can, depending on the BIOS manufacturer, mean a RAM fault so make sure the chips are firmly seated and, if possible, check them with memtest in another system. Check the graphics card is firmly seated as well - because the problem only occurred afer you replaced the floppy drive I would suspect that it is really just a case of having accidentally knocked something.|
