Floppy Drive, used to work?
I have recently rebuilt my whole system. I use to have a P2-266 on a generic motherboard, anlong with everything else generic. I relized that I needed more power. So I slowly started replaceing it piece by piece. I now own a P2-350, on an ASUS P2B, with 128mb SDRAM PC100. Up untill yeasterday all I needed was a new case to complete my computer. So I finnaly got the new case home and started the whole swapping proceidure. When completed, I noticed that my floppy drive light stays constantly lit up? I have tried to acess files from a disk, only to receive an error message "Drive not acessable". I have tried everything that I can think of, to rectify the problem. I have bought new wire harneses, new floppy drives, but still the same problem? Can someone out there please help me?
could you possibly have bent some of the pins on the motherboard floppy connector? try pulling the cable out and checking that all the pins are not bent.
just in case (not to insult your intelligence), you are putting the floppy after the twist in the floppy cable, right?
Have you verified the new power supply?
you may want to ensure proper voltage and grounding of the pin outs of the power leads. I had a P/S give it up where it was dropping voltage causing.Also be sure the screws you reused are not protruding too far into the floppy chassis. Also as mention earlier be sure that floppy cabling is correct.
Thanks, for replying. I figured out it was a bent pin on the motherboard, before I saw any of your responces. Thanks again.
