Floppy disk controller failures

Explanation: The system has detected a failure related to the floppy disk controller. The controller is a separate I/O card that plugs into the motherboard on older systems. Newer PCs have the controller built into the motherboard.

Diagnosis: This is usually a problem related to the floppy disk controller, but could also be the floppy disk(s) themselves. It can be caused by telling the BIOS that there are floppy disk drives in the system when there are not.
