Floppy Not Working?

Lian-li / asus mb / V-1100 / p4b533-e
April 3, 2009 at 07:25:27
Specs: Windows XP, P4 2.4GHz/ 2GB
Background: Lian-Li case uses front panel that pushes against floppy ejector button. If the case is too tight the button will be slightly depressed.

Result: PC will not read Floppy Disk but CMOS will recognize floppy on startup.

FIX: Move floppy back from front panel to allow 1/32 or so clearance.

I now have an extra floppy drive.

I guess that's this one:


Are you posting here to report a similar problem with a particular computer case?

Old threads are locked out. Both, I think because they're old and because they may be archived. You can check for more recent threads on the subject that are probably still open by going down to 'related post' just below this.

Two reasons for posting:

1. Heads up to Lang-Li or similar case designs where front panel is designed to push against floppy eject button.

2. Very grateful thanks for this excellent forum resource!
