must be stinking XP and the F6 blunder.
so why run XP, the virus magnet.

i guess you meant something does not work
and that Something (a secret) needs a DRiver.
or you mean you are installing windows XP from scratch
and when it gets lost finding SATA drives. (as XP loves to do)
and then asks you to load the SATA driver using F6 key.
then you look and there is no floppy there.
upgrade to W7
XP and VISTA are not supported now.

Try a Power Supply Unit (PSU) Reset: Unplug the electrical cable from the wall and the PSU (Back of Computer)
Move the red voltage selector to the opposite position it is in and then slide it back. If you live in the USA 120Vac to 220Vac back to 120Vac
After you have done this you can plug the power cable back into the PSU. Connect the power cable to the wall power. If the PSU is still serviceable it will no longer be blinking.

no you do not ..The bios settings will not be erased when you change the battery but will turn to default settings ..This is usually the setting used in this cases..
change the battery (only in case it does not hold settings and file associations or the date and clock ..if does that it needs to be changed )
After changing it ..just reboot ..it will ask for F1 to go to setting and select the date and time ..and save changes with F10 and restart ..if it does not boot and it says it has no hard disk ..or not detected..it means you have a hard disk on sata bus..and you need to make some adjustments in Bios settings ..Open bios by pressing the del button on start or if it is a hap ...press F10 or what is indicated on screen ..and in there select the hard disk in boot sector as first boot device ..than in advanced settings look for it ..and under sata settings ..remove the ahci mode and use sata as ide or ide mode or ide compatible ..cause your system may not have the driver for ahci ..and this can be the only issue ..Let me know if you have any problems ..

Check to see if you do have the right driver installed.
Hook every thing in from the back of the computer, try the front if any. it may be recognized but is the wrong driver.

If you open the case and look at the motherboard you should notice a small, round, silver "watch" battery in a socket somewhere. This is the battery that needs to be replaces. Check this link for further instructions.
