All the time I get: Please insert a disk in Drive A. I have changed the cable twice. Cables are correct way round. Power is correct way up. Just noticed A: light does not come on at all. However the FDD is new.
Interesting. 'Faulty' FDD in first computer at one point gave the appearance of a dead PC. Now other computer appears dead. I am confident it will come alive again when I remove the'faulty' FDD. Anyone else seen the like?
I had a reply all ready and pressed the wrong button.
No doubt remains in my mind, the old FDD has to go in the bin. Whatever the reason the effect on the power supply is that of a dead short somewhere. It is dragging the supply line down and could wreck the PSU very easily
