Default Problem at start up

For a few days now I have been looking at buying a new graphics card and PSU for my computer. (See this thread: http://www.computerforums.org/showth...therboard-Help.) I have had the case open numerous times, but have never actually touched anything. Tonight I went to use this computer (I usually use my laptop) and it didn't have internet. I restarted it and then got this:

"Floppy diskette seek failure
Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility"

I hit F1 and although I have internet back, my AIM and MSN won't connect. I restarted again and got the same message. I have never had a floppy drive with this computer. I open up the "Device Manager" and uninstalled "Floppy disk drives" and "Floppy drive controllers". I then turned it off, waited a bit and restarted just to get the same message. Once I logged it, my computer started to install drivers for a floppy drive.

Any suggestions?

Alright, well I solved that quickly. Somehow the date on my computer was set back to May of 2007, and I just disabled the floppy under setup.
