Hi,

Do you get these errors reading, writing or formatting a floppy disk?
Do you get these errors on all floppy disks or only a few?
Have you recently installed any new hardware/software or moved the system?

If you can, check the power and ribbon cable going to the floppy drive to make sure they are well attached. Make sure the BIOS floppy option is set correctly (hit <DEL> during power up on most systems)
