I recently found out that my floppy drive isn't working. I was in the process of putting XP on my computer, when I realized it no longer works, and I need to run a boot disk to get anywhere because I've formatted the hard drive.
When I turn on the my computer, the green light on the a: drive is on all the time, when there is a disk in it and when there isn't. The screen says floppy drive failed. There must be power (the light is on) but I can't figure out the problem
I've tried replacing the floppy drive (didn't work). I have also taken the cables off and put them back on. It seems there is only 1 way they fit, so it seems that they are on the right way, and I'm stuck for ideas of what to do next.
