Floppy drive rattling (98)

If you hear a noisy rattling of the floppy drive when you boot, if windows goes into an error when you put a floppy in drive a:, here are some of the most common causes:
Antivirus program set to scan on boot or at a pre-determined interval Office FindFast
Recent documents history: Right click the clock > Start menu programs > Clear Boot floppy seek enabled in the BIOS Control panel > System > Performance > File System > Floppy disk: Uncheck Search for new floppy disk.

Change the computer's clock to match the network's (9x, XP)

At the command prompt, type: NET TIME\computer name /SET /YES (for example, NET TIME \My server /SET /YES).
Even better, put that line in your client PC's network log-on sequence, and the client will be updated with the server's system time whenever it's restarted.
