I don't know.
As you know, if you format a floppy disk, you should be able to double click on it, and see a blank disk.
Maybe try another blank floppy disk?
You're going to have to figure that one out on your own, I'm afraid.

Figured it out. I was mad so me and my friend have took out Floppy Drive of my case and open it. We found 2 tons of dust inside, now it's working normally. I've done what you said. My Microcode version was 1.07, now it's 1.09 and I'm still having error message every time I reboot my PC. I think it will stay that way. Can you just help me with this: where should I look for my processor stepping except BIOS and bentchmark programs? Any other way to find out my CPU stepping?

Glad you got it sorted out but sorry the microcode update didn't fix the issue.
I guess you will have to live with it as it is (but hitting F1 every time to continue booting would drive me nuts).
The only tool I am familiar with is the Intel Processor ID tool--and you already know about that one,
If you can ever get your hands on a SL6WG 3.2 processor, I guarantee that one will work just right with no error.

I was looking for a CPU u said it would be good but I saw that Northwood's litography is 130 and litography of my CPU is 90. Does it make any problem installing it to my motherboard? It's not the size, right??

That doesn't matter. Sometimes it does, but not in this case.
This is the one you want...I always used SL6 WG because they worked 100% of the time for me.
