    Computer without a floppy disk drive indicates a floppy disk error :-(


    Hello all

    I have Lenovo Thinkcentre desktop computer with Windows 10 (build 1809) up to date!

    The computer works very well and does not have a floppy disk, never have and will never have because no port is provided on the motherboard for this!

    Yet in the "Device Manager", a driver error for the floppy drive appears (normal there is n ...) and the floppy disk icon appears in the workstation!



    I easily managed to delete the icon in the workstation from the registry, but I can not find how to disable this "floppy drive" in the device list !!

    Of course there is no option in the BIOS of the machine because (as I said before) no drive is provided on the motherboard.

    Does anyone have the trick to "erase" this device in the Windows 10 "Device Manager" ?

    Thanks for your help

    Hi there
    @JCMacintosh

    Go to control panel (yes it's still there) -->system-->device manager.

    Scroll down until you see the floppy disk
    Right mouse click and you should have an option to Uninstall device

    For example (I don't want to remove this device but just to show as an example as I don't have an FDD).

    If windows tries to re-install the device disable the device driver from the same menu by clicking properties and you'll get another popup screen where you can uninstall and disable the device driver.

    Cheers
